Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon (Preliminary Mix) 1:07
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: US A Night At The Opera Hollywood Records promo cassette (Withdrawn)

This preliminary mix appears on a Hollywood Records promo cassette possibly remastered by Eddy Schreyer. For whatever reason the entire remaster was withdrawn and instead Hollywood Records went with a remaster done by Stephen Marcussen at Precision Mastering. This version is the same as the album version, except it omits the line "There he goes again" at 0:44.

I'm In Love With My Car (Single Version) 3:12
Written by Roger Taylor
Appears on: UK Bohemian Rhapsody 7" vinyl, Japan Bohemian Rhapsody 3" CD single, US Greatest Hits: We Will Rock You Edition,
UK The Singles Collection Volume 1
The beginning of the track starts with engine revving sound effects (which ends the album version). The single version ends with a fade out (without the guitar bit). A really neat mix.

I'm In Love With My Car (Rocks Mix) 3:11
Written by Roger Taylor
Appears on: Queen Rocks

The same as the album mix with the added engine sound effects from the single version added at the beginning. Basically a mix between the single and album versions.

I'm In Love With My Car (Hollywood Records 1991 Remix) 3:28
Written by Roger Taylor, Remixed by Mike Shipley
Appears on: A Night at the Opera Hollywood Remaster (1991), US Hollywood Records Rocks Promo CD set

Starts with a vocal phased intro of band singing "I'm in love with my car" with engine sound effects and goes into the normal drum/piano intro. Phased chorus is used again at the end with the guitar/engine outro. A pretty good remix.

I'm In Love With My Car (Guitar & Vocal Mix 2011) 3:20

Written by Roger Taylor
Appears on: UK/US 2011 A Night At The Opera Deluxe CD

A new mix created from the original multitrack of I'm In Love With My Car focuses on just the guitars and Roger's vocals. The guitars are heard clearly on their own for the first time, showing how great the performance is. Roger's vocals of course are fantastic and are well suited to the song. An interesting alternative to the album version.

I'm In Love With My Car (Live at the Hammersmith Odeon, 1979) - Absolute Greatest Streaming Video Version 2:02
Written by Roger Taylor
Appears on: UK 2009 Absolute Greatest Streaming Video

Appearing only as a bonus steaming video to 2009's Absolute Greatest release, this live performance is similar in structure to the one that appears on Live Killers.

You're My Best Friend (Hollywood Records 1991 Remix) 2:52
Written by John Deacon, Remixed by Matt Wallace
Appears on: A Night at the Opera Hollywood Remaster (1991)
, US Hollywood Records Rocks Promo CD set
Hard to notice a difference between this version and the album mix. The most notable difference is Freddie's lead vocal volume is more noticeable (example at 1:34). The keyboard sound seems to be a bit different as well. Nothing really special about this remix.

You're My Best Friend (Karaoke Version) 2:51
Written by John Deacon
Appears on: Greatest Karaoke Hits

A pure uncut instrumental of the album track. No click track at the beginning of the song.

You're My Best Friend (Backing Track Mix 2011) 2:58
Written by John Deacon

Appears on: UK/US 2011 A Night At The Opera Deluxe CD
The Backing Track Mix is a true instrumental mix of You're My Best Friend, created from the original multitrack. Freddie's lead vocals are gone so that the instrumental backing track can be clearly heard. A little bit of studio banter starts and ends the track.

'39 (Classic Albums Version) 2:50
Written by Brian May
Appears on: US/UK Classic Albums: The Making Of A Night At The Opera DVD
This 2005 recording features just Brian May performing '39 on acoustic guitar and lead vocals. A nice version that is similar to the Queen + Paul Rodgers 2005/2006 live performances.

'39 (Live At Earl's Court, 1977) 3:47
Written by Brian May
Appears on: UK/US 2011 A Night At The Opera Deluxe CD
An absolutely fantastic live version of '39 from Queen's second night at Earl's Court in June, 1977. Of course the remastering helps this live performance shine. This fantastic performance is preferred to the one that appears on 1979's Live Killers. Unlike the studio version, Freddie sings lead vocals. Roger and Brian's backing vocals are spot-on to the album version as well. Highly Recommended.

Sweet Lady (Live In Hyde Park, 1976) 4:07
Written by Brian May
Appears on: US/UK Classic Albums: The Making Of A Night At The Opera DVD
A nice surpise bonus on the Classic Albums documentary on the making of A Night At The Opera is the live performance of Sweet Lady from Hyde Park. This track isn't available as a live performance on any other official Queen release. A good live performance from the legendary concert.

Sweet Lady (The eYe Version) 1:03
Written by Brian May
Appears on: Queen: The eYe

From the Electronic Arts videogame, Queen: The eYe. This version is the first minute of the album version, stopping suddenly with an echo effect.

The Prophet's Song (DVD-Audio Version) 8:31
Written by Brian May
Appears on: A Night At The Opera DVD Audio

A slightly extended version for DVD-A only. The extra time is at the beginning with a longer "wind intro." Doesn't really add a whole lot to the song, but slightly adds to the atmosphere.

Love Of My Life

Love Of My Life (Stand-Alone Version) 3:36

The same as the album version, but without the segue from The Prophet's Song.

Love Of My Life (Live from Rio, 1985) 5:25
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on:
US George Michael + Queen Somebody To Love cassette single
A very nice live version from the 1985 Rock In Rio concert. The track starts with some audience banter from Brian. Freddie and the crowd do a nice job of switching back and forth between verses.

Love Of My Life (Live from Rio, 1985) - Absolute Greatest Streaming Video Version 4:52
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: UK 2009 Absolute Greatest Streaming Video

This version cuts off a good portion of Brian introducing the song to the crowd and cuts off much of the crowd noise at the end. The version that appears on the US George Michael + Queen cassette is preferred.


Love Of My Life (The eYe Version) 0:04
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: Queen: The eYe

From the Electronic Arts videogame, Queen: The eYe. At only 4 seconds, this is just a brief snippet of the harp intro to the album version. This is used as a sound effect in the game.

Love Of My Life (Classic Albums Duet Mix) 3:54
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: US/UK Classic Albums: The Making Of A Night At The Opera DVD
A fun bonus on the Classic Albums documentary on the making of A Night At The Opera is the duet mix of Love Of My Life. The audio/video of the track mixes Brian May performing the song acoustically in 2005 with Freddie's classic performance from Wembley Stadium in 1986.

Bohemian Rhapsody (Promo Edit) 3:30

Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: France Bohemian Rhapsody 7" promo vinyl

This is presumably the only officially released edit version of Bohemian Rhapsody ever released. This 1978 French promo vinyl is very hard to find anywhere. The track is rumored to be 3:30 in length with the middle opera section edited out (among other bits). Beware of fake edits of this track appearing on file sharing programs and on various websites. Thus far a real copy has yet to be leaked or shared on the internet.

Bohemian Rhapsody (UK 3" CD Version) 6:00
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: UK Bohemian Rhapsody 3" CD

This version starts with the swirling notes from the end of "Good Company." This is most likely a remastering error.

Bohemian Rhapsody (Karaoke Version) 5:59
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: Greatest Karaoke Hits

This is a highly recommended instrumental version that is quite interesting on it's own without the vocals. It's quite fascinating to hear just the guitar, bass, and drums at the heart of the song without vocals. Completely uncut except for a very slight early fade at the end. Opens with a karaoke click track.


Bohemian Rhapsody (2004 Karaoke Version) 5:55
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on: 2004 Japan Greatest Karaoke Hits
, Greatest Karaoke Hits DVD
This version is the same as the original karaoke version, except that this starts with Freddie counting in, instead of the click track.


Bohemian Rhapsody (Operatic Section A Cappella Mix 2011) 1:04
Written by Freddie Mercury
Appears on:
UK/US 2011 A Night At The Opera Deluxe CD
Created from the original multitrack, this A Capella Mix is the entire operatic section of Bohemian Rhapsody with just vocals. Not recommended for repeat listening, but is a neat listen just to hear the vocal complexities of the operatic section.

God Save The Queen (Single Version) 1:15

Same as the album track except the drum roll intro does not fade in. Rather, the intro is at full volume.
