This edit of Shove It only appears on the US 7" vinyl single and promo releases. At the begining, after the lyrics "You ain't wearin' a tie..." the "VIPs and royalty" line is gone. Also, after "You're in the wrong bracket" it jumps to "Girls...We love it". Note, this song version does not appear on the US 12" vinyl; instead the album version is used.

More than just an extended version of the album track, this track adds some new lyrics and feels more like a continuation of the song. If you like the album version, you'll probably dig this.

The Lot
On the first singles disc of tracks from The Cross, it was intended for the Extended Mix of Shove It to be included. The wrong audio track was used on The Lot, and the 2nd Shelf Mix was used by mistake.

A tight remix, this adds some echo to the percussion and a few added effects here and there. The vocals mix parts of both the album and Extended versions. At three and a half minutes, it doesn't overdo it.

The backdrop of the Shove It video is The Cross playing in a steamy nightclub. The actual audio for the video is the album version with 30 seconds of added club noise at the beginning.

The Denniz Pop Remix of Shove It first appeared on a June 1998 edition of the Swedish club record series called Swe-Mix. This series, which is released by Remix Records, featured dance mixes to various songs by artists, some established, some not. This was sanctioned and authorized for release by Virgin Records at the time (and it says as much on the label). The remix is a dance oriented version of the song.

You probably wouldn't notice this version is edited until you compare times. This mix is done very well and keeps the guts of the song intact. The beginning and end are where most of the trimming takes place.

The pitch is increased slightly on this one, making it the standard Single Version run faster than usual. The result is a shorter running time for the same cut of the song.

Two versions of this song were recorded for The Cross album Shove It. Freddie's vocals seem more suited to this song than Roger's (which are also pretty good), which is probably one of the reasons it was dusted off for Queen's Made In Heaven album. If this version sounds familiar, that's why. Roger sings the intro, middle-eight and outro, absent from the Queen version.

This is the other version of the song recorded for Shove It. Roger sings the entire song, with Freddie singing back-up. The song feels lighter and mellower compared to both Freddie's version and the eventual Queen version. This version was also used for the video.

Brian May appears on this track, both on the album and the single, playing some great guitar. This was the lead-off single for the album, so it came out before the album did, making this version the original. The differences to the album aren't huge, but you'll notice the beefier guitars. Roger sings "I want you to burn! Burn! Burn!" on this version, which is edited on the album (except the last "Burn!") for some reason. This version is also about ten seconds shorter, fading out earlier.

Rough Justice

On all US formats (CD, LP and cassette), this version finishes off the album. The difference between it and the UK version is the fifty-second "Shove It" instrumental reprise, which also appears on The 2nd Shelf Mix" ending the UK CD Shove It album. In a way, by itself, this version works better than the UK Version, because it has a less-abrupt ending. This version does appear on the UK LP, which excludes The 2nd Shelf Mix.

On the UK CD album, this version is the same as the US version, but does not feature the fifty-second "Shove It" outro at the end. It doesn't need to, because the next track is The 2nd Shelf Mix of "Shove It," which does the same job (and has that outro at the end anyway). Without the album outro, though, the song itself ends a little abruptly (but not badly).

This error cuts off the last 3 seconds of the track. This was later fixed on the 2nd Pressing of The Lot

The US alone lucked out by getting an extra song on its version of the album (the UK version instead got The 2nd Shelf Mix). It is not the strongest song on the album, but it isn't bad. It follows "Heaven For Everyone" (the version with Roger's lead vocals), feeling like an optimistic sequel to that song. This track, along with Roger's version of "Heaven For Everyone," make the US edition of the album worth seeking out.

2nd Shelf Mix

2nd Shelf Mix 5:50

This mix is basically the entire Shove It Extended Mix, with a fifty-second instrumental reprise added to the end. This same reprise appears at the end of the US version of "Rough Justice," acting on both UK and US versions of the album as the outro.
