An absolutely fantastic fan mix that was written by Ross Robertson and mixed by Russian DJ Koma. This fan mix incorporates parts of the album version, reprise, single version, and eYe mix. This is also the only fan mix to be dubbed as an official version, being used as an opening for the 2005-2006 world tour. The song has since been made available on iTunes.

The familiar version from Made In Heaven began with this original take from April 1980. This is just Freddie on vocals and piano, and this is the take that appears on the final album version. Fifteen years later Roger, Brian, and John finished the track and used it as the opening to the multi-platinum Made In Heaven album.

Stemming from John Deacon, this B-side to Scandal was later reworked into an album cut for the posthumous Made In Heaven album. This original version is a bit fuller and heavier. Sounds similar to the Made In Heaven version. Freddie's vocals have a slight phased/multitracked sound to them. Ending has some spoken parts by Freddie.

My Life Has Been Saved (Made In Heaven Version) 3:15
Written by Queen

Reworked from the B-side version from 1989 for the Made In Heaven album, this version features the keyboard much more prominently and has a lighter sound from the added synth effects. Freddie's vocal track is much clearer, louder, and doesn't seem to be as processed. It is arguable whether this version or the original is better. Regardless, the reworking of this song made it fit in well with the Made In Heaven album.

The actual time is mislabeled on the CD promo as 3:40. The edit actually comes in at an even 4:00. The first 9 seconds of the album version are cropped off at the beginning. At about 3:20 on the edit, the pitch slowly increases and shaves off about 10 seconds from the album version. The pitch returns to normal at around 3:32. The last 30 seconds from the album version are taken off the end to finish up this edit.

This track is the same as the album version, except it fades-out much earlier. The track fades out completely right before Freddie would sing "ha ha ha it's magic". An effective edit that doesn't stick out or take much away from the track.

Heaven For Everyone was the lead single for Queen's final, proper album with Freddie Mercury. The song was written by Roger Taylor, reportedly with British singer/songwriter Joan Armatrading in mind to sing it. A Joan Armatrading version was not to be, so Roger recorded it for the first album with his newly found side-band, The Cross. In September, 1987, Freddie visited Roger in the studio and loved the track, so much so that he demanded to sing it. The Freddie Mercury vocal take appeared on the UK version of the first Cross album, Shove It, while Roger Taylor's lead vocal of the song appeared on the US album and the UK single. After Freddie Mercury's death in November 1991, the remaining members of Queen continued work on the unfinished tracks that he left behind. To make a complete album, some other sources were needed. May, Taylor, and Deacon reworked some of Freddie's solo material, completed some unfinished tracks, and used Freddie's 1987 vocal take from Heaven For Everyone and added a new backing track. The new, reworked Queen version was used as the lead single for the album. The track appeared on two seperate CD singles in the UK that were released a week apart. The Part 1 CD single was released on October 23, 1995, two weeks before the album hit shelves. It proved popular in the UK, reaching number 2 on the chart. The CD single release did not feature the album version, rather an edited, single version. Even with a full minute of the instrumental sections removed, this remains a very effective and seamless edit. In fact, it is very difficult to pick out what has been removed.

Essentially this is the Single Edit with some strange editing choices, which takes 5 seconds out of the final running time. First, there is a really jarring edit/mix at about 9 seconds with Freddie's lead vocal adding "for everyone" to the "this could be heaven.." opening. Secondly, at approximately 2:50, there is a drum beat missing after Brian's guitar scale climb.

Too Much Love Will Kill You (Rough Mix) 4:19
Written by Queen
Appears on:
Capitol Records "Rough Mixes" cassette tape
In early 1989, Queen sent Capitol Records an 11 track cassette tape with full-length rough mixes of the proposed tracklisting for The Miracle. Too Much Love Will Kill You was originally slated to appear on The Miracle as the 5th track (between I Want It All and The Invisible Man). Publishing issues with the co-writers of the track and the other members of Queen kept it off the album. The song would later appear on 1995's Made In Heaven. The rough mix of Too Much Love Will Kill You features the same performance that appears on the final album version. Mostly, the differences between the two are strictly in the mix of the song (instrumental volume levels, stereo effects, etc). However, there are some noticeable percussion differences, particularly with the bass drum at the end of the song.

13 Track Preview cassette for Capitol Records
In late 1988, a 13 track cassette was sent by Queen to executives at Capitol Records in the USA. The cassette served as a preview to their new, as of yet unnamed album. The cassette had excerpts of work-in-progress song versions to satisfy the curiosities of Capitol Records. Five of those tracks have leaked freely amongst traders (Scandal, Too Much Love Will Kill You, The Invisible Man, I Want It All, and The Miracle). The tape is currently owned by Queen collector John S. Stuart. Too Much Love Will Kill You was originally going to be part of The Miracle album, but was omitted due to publishing and rights issues. The vocal performance from Freddie is a different take.

By far, the best of the You Don't Fool Me mixes, which isn't saying much. The track starts out with Freddie's vocal impromptu from Live Aid (which is repeated throughout the song). The track has an added backbeat. Freddie's vocals are very clear as are Roger's backing vocals, which are brought to the forefront a few times. The mix of Brian's guitar solos is very good here.

A shorter mix of the BS Project Remix. This has a very upbeat dance backbeat that works fairly well (just as in the full length version). This edited version of the remix actually holds up better due to the shorter length of the track. It does start to get repetitive at the end though.

At first, this mix is very deceptive; it starts off just like the album version and then cuts bits of the Live Aid vocal impromptu into the album version. A backbeat is later added, sounding very simliar to the Late Mix. This mix could be considered a remix edit of the Late Mix.

A very odd remix. Starts off with a synthesized "clicking" synthesized drum intro with distorted clips of Freddie's vocals from White Man. The remix continues with the dancing backbeat and Live Aid clips. Roger's backing vocals are brought to the forefront a few times and the track continues with the backbeat and synthesized horns. Becomes very repetitive.

This remix is very similar to the Club Dub remix. It starts off with a very bass oriented dance backbeat that actually sounds decent and continues throughout the song. This is more of an instrumental than the Club Dub and features more sampling from the Live Aid performance and from White Man.

The Queen Forever Megamix has a backbeat very similar to the Revenge Dub. No vocals from You Don't Fool Me are featured whatsoever. Instead samples from Under Pressure, Somebody To Love, Live Aid, The Prophet's Song, and White Man are mixed into the thumping dance backbeat. A very odd and random mix of samples.

The track begins with some added Spanish sounding guitar, not done by Brian, but sampled from another source. The guitar is joined by the typical dance backbeat, which is a faster tempo than the other mixes. Bits of the guitar show up throughout the song, making it fairly interesting.

This is by far the worst of the You Don't Fool Me remixes. The dance backbeat is the most annoying and monotonous of the bunch, which is saying something. A sample of Freddie singing "sexy" is repeated over and over throughout the song. The vocals are rearranged throughout the song with long, annoying dance grooves in-between. Roger's vocals have been brought to the forefront a few times again, which is nice to hear.

The album version of A Winter's Tale has a very minor cross-fade with the reprise of It's A Beautiful Day. At the end of the album version the rumbling synth of It's A Beautiful Day (Reprise) can be heard. As a result, the beginning of It's A Beautiful Day (Reprise) does not have a clean intro. The single version of A Winter's Tale features the full outro without any segue from It's A Beautiful Day (Reprise). The difference between the two is very minor, but can be noticed if you listen closely.

An excellent version of Queen's live impromptu regularly done on the Magic Tour. This is taken from the Rock In Rio concert. Sounds very similar to the impromptu on the Wembley release with added vocals bits of Freddie singing "Rock n' Rio Blues." Worth having and the best version of impromptu that I've heard. The track starts rather abruptly with audience noise however.
