Disc Two Content:
1. 'Backstage In Budapest' Documentary

 

Produced by H.I.P and Fuji Television, co-produced by Fujipacific Music
Executive producer: Jim Beach
Executive producer for Paul Rodgers: Chris Crawford
Directed by Toru Uehara
DVD Produced by Simon Lupton
Audio produced for DVD by Justin Shirley Smith
'Backstage In Budapest' featurette directed by Rudi Dolezal and Hannes Rossacher

Recorded at the Saitama Super Arena, Tokyo, Japan, on 27 October 2005.



This Japanese-only release is only available on the NTSC format, and comes in a standard plastic case, with an OBI strip, a black and white lyric booklet (with lyrics in Japanese and English), and a gold booklet containing the tracklisting, credits and photos. Both DVD's contain black and white menus which contain an excerpt of audience noise.

The concert was previously broadcast (seemingly unedited) on Japanese TV on 31 December 2005. The DVD, packaging and promotion make no reference at all to Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' which is the first track of the concert (played from tape).

The first DVD features the concert, and allows you to play the entire concert, select a song, or change the setup. When it loads, the concert is played with a mini-menu at the bottom, with options of Play In Stereo, Play In 5.1 or Main Menu. This mini-menu is shown for around 90 seconds and then disappears, and the concert continues. The main menu has a black and white design, and contains four options, Play Concert, Song Select, Setup and Resume. The song selection options are arranged over three silent menus, whilst the setup menus allow you to select between stereo, 5.1 surround sound, English subtitles, Japanese subtitles, or turn subtitles off.

The second DVD is a 'Backstage In Budapest' 25 minute documentary, which features new interviews with Brian May, Roger Taylor, Paul Rodgers, Spike Edney, Jamie Moses, Danny Miranda, Laszlo Hegedus (Queen's promoter for the 1986 Budapest show) and James 'Trip' Khalaf. It features footage of the city of Budapest, the Nepstadion, the venue, the stage being built and of the band backstage and meeting fans. The interviews in the programme cover numerous topics, including Paul Rodgers, Queen's songs and back catalogue, the city of Budapest, the tour, first performing together, audiences, and the future. The programme also contains excerpts from the album versions of a number of Queen songs, and also contains short excerpts from live performances of 'Tie Your Mother Down', 'All Right Now' and 'The Show Must Go On', as well as excerpts from the soundcheck and a short backstage blues improvisation of 'Wishing Well'.

The programme is shown automatically when the DVD loads. The menu contains only two options - Play Programme and Subtitles, which allow you to select Japanese or English subtitles, or turn them off.


Seven videos ('Tie Your Mother Down', 'Fat Bottomed Girls', 'Hammer To Fall', 'All Right Now', 'We Will Rock You', 'We Are The Champions' and 'I'm In Love With My Car') were made available to download on iTunes exclusively in Japan. Fifteen tracks were also released as part of a single disc 'Highlights DVD', which was included in a CD and DVD set of 'The Cosmos Rocks', while a similar Japanese release featured a CD, rather than a DVD. At just over 58 minutes, many tracks are omitted, some are included in their entirety and some are edited. The edits generally lose instrumental sections, rather than actual choruses or verses - the only exception to this is 'Radio Ga Ga' which loses a fairly large section of the song. The tracks included are:


1. Reaching Out
2. Tie Your Mother Down (edited version)
3. Fat Bottomed Girls (edited version)
4. Another One Bites The Dust
5. Fire And Water
6. Crazy Little Thing Called Love (edited version)
7. Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)

11. I Was Born To Love You
12. All Right Now (edited version)
13. We Will Rock You
14. We Are The Champions (edited version)
15. God Save The Queen


This disc contains a very basic menu, with just a simple song select screen. The start features Japanese titles followed by English titles, and it does not feature any credits at the end.


Lose Yourself


Chapter 1. Song length 2:21.
This Eminem track is played from tape, and the explosion at the end segues into 'Reaching Out' and extends the time to 2:28.
This track is not mentioned on the DVD, packaging or any of the promotion.
Details of the original version can be found on the 2005 Tour Downloads page.

Lyrics:
Look
If you had one shot, and one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted, one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip

Yo, his palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth but the words won't come out
He's choking how, everybody's choking now
The clock's run out, time's up, over, blah
Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that easy
No, he won't have it, he knows his whole back city's ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that, but he's broke
He's so stacked that he knows
When he goes back to this mobile home that's when it's
Back to the lab again, yo
This whole rap city
Better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
'Cos opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
'Cos opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
'Cos opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
'Cos opportunity comes once in a lifetime, you better

Reaching Out

Lyrics:
Lately, I've been hard to reach
I've been too long on my own

Where they can be alone

Are you calling me?
Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out for me
Like I'm reaching out for you?

Ooh

Steve walks wearily down the street
Brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet
Machine guns ready to go

Are you ready, are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat, yeah, yeah

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust, wooh
OK


How do you think I'm gonna get along
Without you when you're gone
You took me for everything that I had
And left me out on my own
Are you happy, are you satisfied
How long can you stand the heat, ha
Out of the door way the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
Hey, yeah, yeah

Another one bites the dust, ah
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too

There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him when he's down
But I'm ready, yes I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
Repeating to the sound of the beat
Hey, hey, hey, yeah

Another one bites the dust, ooh, look out
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust, hey
Hey, I'm gonna get you too

Lyrics:
Every single day
I gotta heartache coming my way
I don't wanna say goodbye
But look at the tears you made me cry

I don't wanna say goodbye
But look at the tears in my eyes
Every way that's nice
You show you've got a heart that's made of ice

Fire and water
Must have made you a bad daughter
You've got what it takes
To make a poor man's heart break

Lover you turn me on
But quick as a flash your love is gone
Baby I want to leave you
But I'm gonna make you grieve somehow

Fire and water
Must have made you a bad daughter
You've got what it takes
To make a my, make a my, make a my heart break

Lover you turn me on
But quick as a flash your love is gone
Baby I want to leave you now, ha
But I'm gonna make you grieve somehow

Fire and water
Must have made you a bad daughter
You've got what it takes
To make a my heart break baby

Fire and water
Must have made you a bad daughter
You've got what it takes
To make this poor heart of mine break
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh my heart, my poor heart is breaking baby

Wow
A this thing (this thing) called love (called love)
It cries (like a baby)
In the cradle all night
It swings (woo, woo)
It jives (woo, woo)
It shakes all over like a jelly fish
I kinda like it
Crazy little thing called love

There goes my baby
She knows how to rock 'n' roll
She drives me crazy
She gives me hot and cold fever
She leaves me in a cool, cool sweat

Take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love
Let's go

Say It's Not True


Chapter 8. Song length 2:40. Lead vocals by Roger Taylor.
Details of the studio version can be found on the 'The Cosmos Rocks' album page.

Lyrics:
The harder we play
The faster we fall
When we think that we know it all
We know nothing at all

The letter arrives
Like a bolt from the blue
So what's left of your lives
All your dreams lost to you

Say it ain't true
Say it today
When I open my eyes
Will it all go away

Say it's not true
Say it for real
Can't be happening to you
Can't be happening to me

It's hard not to cry
It's hard to believe
So much heartache and pain
So much reason to grieve

With the wonders of science
And all the knowledge we've stored
Magic cocktails for lives
People just can't afford

Say it's not true
You can say it's not right
It's hard to believe
The size of the crime

Say it's not true
Say it's not real
Could be happening to you
Could be happening to me


Roger: Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, (laughs), we call him Miranda, from Brooklyn USA, on the bass and the guitar, Danny Miranda. And a real bad man over here, Mr Jamie Moses on the guitar. Up here, the keeper of the keys, the wizard, Mr Spike Edney. Brian May.

Brian: Ahhh, (speaks in Japanese). Are you sure? Ha, ha. OK. Um, we used to say this in the old days when Freddie was around, um, I would like to say (speaks again in Japanese), because, I'm gonna need all the help I can get, OK? You help me?

'39


Chapter 9. Song length 1:46. Performed by Brian May.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'A Night At The Opera' album page.

Lyrics:
Brian: Yes, please clap, thank you. You can sing aswell if you want.

In the year of '39 assembled here the volunteers
In the days when lands were few
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh
For the earth is old and grey, little darling we'll away
But my love this cannot be
Oh so many years are gone though I'm older but a year
Your mothers eyes from your eyes cry to me
It's true

Don't you
(Audience: hear my call)
(Audience: Though you're many years away)
yeah
(Audience: Don't you hear me calling you) beautiful
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

Don't you hear my call
Though you're many years away
Don't you
(Audience: hear me calling you), yeah
All your letters in the sand
Cannot heal me like your hand
For my life still ahead - God bless every one of you


Brian: Yes, very nice. Ah, fantastic (speaks in Japanese), hey. You guys are wonderful, you wanna sing some more? Have to say, I got a funny feeling singing that song because I know that I did sing that to some of your mothers a few years ago, I'm very happy that we're all here today and we can still enjoy this stuff. Thank you for being here. OK, I think most of you know, this song is for Freddie, and this song is by Freddie, and I think, one of his most beautiful songs ever, and it doesn't matter if I sing it, and if I sing it badly, it doesn't matter, it's still a great song, so we sing it all together and we'll sing it beautifully, OK?

Love of my life - you've hurt me
You've broken my heart and now you leave me

Audience: Don't take it away from me, because you don't know
Audience: What it means to me
Brian: (speaks in Japanese) is fantastic. Thank you people of Tokyo.


Oooh
Love of my life, don't leave me
You've stolen my heart you now desert me
Love of my life can't you see
Bring it back, bring it back
Don't take it away from me, because you don't know
What it means to me

You will remember
When this is blown over
And everything's all by the way
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you
How I still love you

(Audience: I still love you) we still love you, oooooh

Oh hurry back, hurry back
Don't take it away from me
Because you don't know what it means to me
Love of my life

Audience: Love of my life
Ooooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


Brian: Those of you who were here last night, anybody here last night? Ahh, everybody, OK, ha, ha. In that case, you know what this is, and you will be a, you will be a, fortunate, I hope, to witness the second time we will play this song.

Lyrics: (Brian sings most of the song, but Paul sings the last two verses and the 'ohhhh' at the end)
When I'm gone
No need to wonder if I ever think of you
The same moon shines
The same wind blows
For both of us, and time is but a paper moon
Be not gone

Though I'm gone
It's just as though I hold the flower that touches you
New life grows
The blossom knows
There's no-one else could warm my heart as much as you
Be not gone

Let us cling together as the years go by
Oh my love, my love
In the quiet of the night
Let our candle always burn
Let us never lose the lessons we have learned

Brian: In Japanese

Still think of me the way you've come to think of me
The nights grow long
The dreams live on
Just close your pretty eyes and you can be with me
Dream on (dream on, dream on, dream on, dream on)

Teo torriatte konomama iko
Aisuruhito yo
Shizukana yoi ni
Hikario tomoshi
Itoshiki oshieo idaki

When I'm gone
They'll say we're all fools and we don't understand (ooooh, ahhhh)
Oh be strong
Don't turn your heart
You're all
We're all
For always

Let us cling together as the years go by
Oh my love, my love
In the quiet of the night
Let our candle always burn
Let us never lose the lessons we have learned

Ohhhh

Hammer To Fall

Lyrics:
Wow
Yeah, yeah

Rich or poor or famous
Your truth is all the same (oh no, oh no)
Lock your door but rain is falling
Through your window pane (oh no)
Baby now your struggle's all in vain

Oh

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just want to scream it louder and louder and

What the hell we fighting for, ooh
Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
Just got time to say your prayers
While you're waiting for the hammer to, hammer to fall

Hey

Hey

Sock it to me

Way down deep inside
Baby when you touch me
And I need to be satisfied

Come on and love me
Give me your love
Ahhhh, ahhh
Mmmmmm

Baby, when I think about you
I think about love
Darling, I don't live without you
And your love

Of my yesterday (yesterday)
I would wrap you in the heaven
Really dying (dying, dying) all the way

I feel like makin'
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love
I feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love to you

Baby, if I think about you
I think about love
Baby, baby, baby, if I live without you
I live without love

And if I had the sun and moon
And they were shining (shining)
You know I would give you both night and day
Love satisfying (-fying)

I feel like makin'
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love

Lyrics:
Roger: One, two, three, one, two, three

Aaahhhh
The machine of a dream, such a clean machine
With the pistons a pumping, and the hub-caps all gleam
When I'm holding your wheel
All I hear is your gear
Your hand on that grease gun
It's like a disease son

I'm in love with my car (love with my car)
Gotta feel for my automobile
Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar (love with my car)
Such a thrill when your radials squeal

Told my girl I'd have to forget her
Rather buy me a new carburettor
So she made tracks saying this is the end now
Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now

When I'm holding your wheel
All I hear is your gear
When I'm cruising in overdrive
Don't have to listen to no run of the mill talk jive

I'm in love with my car (love with my car)
Gotta feel for my automobile
I'm in love with my car (love with my car)
String back gloves in my automolove

Lyrics:
Sometimes I get to thinking
I was back in the old days, long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect then, you know

The days were endless, we were crazy, we were young
The sun was always shining, we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately, I don't know
Rest of my life's been just a show

'Cos those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing's still true
When I look, and I find, I still love you

You can't turn back the clock, you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame?
I'd like to go back one time on a rollercoaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and a thinking on what you did
When you can lie back enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately I don't know
Better sit back and go with the flow

'Cos these are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find Brian May

Oooh-ooh, yeah

'Cos those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but
Some things are true
When I look and I find
I still love you
Yeeeeeh

Oh yeah

I'd sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio

You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars
You made 'em laugh, you made us cry
You made us feel like we could fly

So don't become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don't know, and just don't care
And just complain when you're not there
You had your time, you had the power

You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio
Everybody

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Oh, radio, someone still loves you
Alright

We watch the shows, we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
Our music changes through the years

Let's hope you'll never leave old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So stick around, we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual

You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio

Roger: Paul Rodgers

I'm hearing secret harmonies

Paul: Here's a song about love, love in a peaceful world, and this one is called Wishing Well, alright
Roger: One, two, a one, two, three, four


Take off your hat, kick off your shoes
I know you ain't going anywhere
Run round the town singing your blues
I know you ain't going anywhere

You've always been a good friend of mine
But you're always saying farewell
And the only time that you're satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishing well

Throw down your gun, you might shoot yourself
Or is that what you're trying to do
Put up a fight you believe to be right
And someday the sun will shine through

You've always got you something to hide
Something you just can't tell
And the only time that you're satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishing well
Ooh, ooh, but wait

I know what you're wishing for
Love in a peaceful world, love
Love in a peaceful world, love
Love in a peaceful world

You've always been a good friend of mine
But you're always saying farewell
And the only time that you're satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishing well

I know that everybody has a dream
Everybody has a wish
Yes, I wish you well
Yes, I wish you well
Come on

Dream on

One, two

Adventure seeker, on an empty street
Just an alley creeper, light on his feet
A young fighter screaming, with no time for doubt
And the pain and the anger, can't see a way out
It ain't much I'm asking, I heard him say
I gotta find me a future, move out of my way

I want it all, I want it all
I want it all and I want it now
(I want it all) give it to me (I want it all)
I want it all and I want it now

Listen all you people, come gather round
I gotta get me a game plan, that's gonna shake you to the ground
Woh, just give me now, what I know is mine
People do you hear me, just give me little sign

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Here's to the future, hear the cry of youth
(I want it all, I want it all) give it to me, give it to me, oh, oh
(I want it all, and I want it now) oh yes I, got to have it all
(I want it all, I want it all) give it to me, everyday
(I want it all) ohhh (and I want it
now)

I'm a man with a one track mind
So much to do in one life time
(people do you hear me)
Not a man for compromise and where's and why's and living lies
So I'm living it all
(yes I'm living it all)
And I'm giving it all (and I'm giving it all now), ooooh

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Here's to the future, hear the call of youth
(I want it all, I want it all) give it to me now, oh, oh
(I want it all and I want it now) oooh, yeah
Oh yes I want it all, I want it all
I want it all and I want it now, hey

(I want it all, I want it all) so hard to find peace in my mind

I want it
I want it

Lyrics: (the lyrics in white are sung by Freddie, from Live At Wembley; the lyrics in blue are from the original version and the lyrics in red are live vocals)
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away

Mama, oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody, I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

Mama, oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
(anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all, oooh


I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouche, Scaramouche will you do the fandango?
Thunderbolts and lightning - very, very frightening me
Gallileo, gallileo
Gallileo, gallileo
Gallileo, figaro - magnifico-o-o-o-oh
I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go, let me go
Will not let you go, let me go
Never, never, never, never, never (never let you go)
Never let me go-o-o-o-oh
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, mama mia, mama mia
Mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me


So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oooh, baby, can't do this to me baby
I just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Ooooh

(Ooh yeah, ooh yeah)

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters

Lyrics:
Mmmmm, mmmmm

Empty spaces, what are we living for
Abandoned places, I guess we know the score
On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for

Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore

(The show must go on) the show must go on
(The show must go on) the show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance
On and on, does anybody know what we are living for

I guess I'm learning (I'm learning, I'm learning, I'm learning), I must be warmer now
I'll soon be turning (turning, turning, turning) round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free

(The show must go on) the show must go on
(The show must go on) the show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on, yeah

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
We can fly my friends

(The show must go on) the show must go on
(The show must go on) the show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On with the show

I'll top the bill
I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the
On with the show
(The show must go on) the show must go on
