Hollywood Records Remixes


This page includes details of the remixes which are known to have been produced by Hollywood Records from 1991 onwards, which were released on the 1991 remaster CD's, the 'We Will Rock You' 1992 remixed single, and the 1999 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' promo.

Of these remixes, only one is officially available in the UK, namely the Rick Rubin Remix of 'We Will Rock You', which was released on the 'No-One But You' single and in the 'Queen Singles Collection 4' boxed set. The remaining remixes seem to be exclusive to North America.

For two of the remixes, I haven't transcribed the lyrics, due to the difficulty in deciphering the rap vocals, and my reluctance to waste my time on anything that bad.

Another One Bites The Dust

(Ice Cube Remix)


Only available on the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' US promo CD. Length 3:22.
Remixed by Chyskillz Remix, featuring Ice Cube, Hi-C and Chyskillz.
This track features completely new music, and only retains Freddie singing 'Another One Bites The Dust', alongside other vocalists so you can barely hear him, which are rearranged into a chant. It's not really a remix, more of a different song which barely samples the original. Altogether this has to be one of the worst tracks in the Queen catalogue, even ranking below some of the 'You Don't Fool Me' remixes, which is really saying something.
The lyrics are very hard to make out, so attempting to transcribe it would be pointless.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Game' album page.

Another One Bites The Dust

(Phase And Rave Remix)


Only available on the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' US promo CD. Length 4:12.
Remixed by Phase 5 and Dave Ogilvie (known as 'Rave').
This track retains some of the music of the original, and many of Freddie's vocals, but adds a dance beat, DJ effects, rap vocals, and samples from 'Flash', some other artists songs, television programmes and films. It's a bit of an odd track, but quite well done.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Game' album page.

Lyrics: (the samples from television, films and non-Queen songs are in italics)
Ladies and gentlemen, before proceeding with the main business of the day, which is the selling of these lots at any price, we are gonna have a little entertainment, very little

Flash, a-ah
Saviour of the universe

Bring it on down

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

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


Hey, yeahh

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

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


And the record of the famous dilly silly billy song
(Unknown dialogue) the record was loud but, but it only woke me up
(Unknown dialogue)
Gee, that's funny, can it be that this jukebox works like magic?
Let it go, let yourself go
Are you ready for this?
OK
We'd like to capture your mind right now
Take you a little bit higher


One two in the house say you don't stop
One two in the house say you don't quit
Raw fusion controlling the set tonight
Just lickin' them down with the funk
(unknown lyrics)
You see, me and old school grooves go way back
And now I think it's fair for me to say that
Sheek and fad back, one of my favourites
Had to be Queen when I did my thing
On the street corner, or at a block party
But not at the club see, 'cos suckers might call me
My mamma said I was special
Got rhymes like my face got freckles
And you know I'm never leaving the girls alone
Doc Nasty wrecking the microphone
I'm just making you trip on the stuff I be writing up
Other MC's
(unknown lyrics) tighten up
So for me, respect is a must have

(Unknown lyrics) of biting the dust, in other words
Hey, it's getting flown like a kite so

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, ow
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, hey

Ooh, shout


Hey, what are you trying to do? You ruined my record man, I just bought it
I don't care what you just bought, you get your little fanny perpendicular and get ready for school
(Unknown dialogue)
I'm not going to school

Body Language

(Susan Rogers Remix)


Only available on the 'Hot Space' Hollywood remaster CD. Length 4:44.
Remixed by Susan Rogers.
This version is similar to the album version, with additional percussion, keyboards and guitar.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Hot Space' album page.

Lyrics:
Give me, body
Give me, body - body
Give me, your body
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, baby don't talk

Don't Try Suicide

(Muggs Remix)


Only available on the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' US promo CD. Length 3:35.
Remixed by Gransmaster Muggs.
As with the Ice Cube remix of 'Another One Bites The Dust', this is effectively a new song with samples of the original mixed in, rather than a remix. It features brand new music, new rap vocals, and really only retains the 'suicide, suicide', 'don't do it, yeah', and 'don't try suicide' vocals. It is preferrable to the 'Ice Cube' remix, but only just.
The lyrics are very hard to make out, often with several vocals over the top of each other, so attempting to transcribe it would be pointless.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Game' album page.

Dragon Attack

(RAK and Jack Benson Remix)


Available on the 'The Game' Hollywood remaster CD, and the 'Queen Basic Bootlegs' promo. Length 4:21.
Remixed by RAK and Jack Benson.
This is a dance remix, which has additional vocals and a new rap section (in italics). The backing has the line 'it's a dragon' repeated throughout.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Game' album page.

Lyrics:
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, I'll tell you what to do
It's, it's, it's a dragon attack
It's, it's, it's
It's, it's, it's a dragon attack

Take me to the room where the red's all red
Take me out of my head's that's what I said, yeah, ow
Hey, take me to the room where the green's all green
And from what I've seen it's hot, it's mean, yeah

I'm gonna use my stack
It's gotta be Mack
Gonna get me on the track
Got a dragon on my back
Ooh

Take me to the room where the beat's all round
Gonna eat the sound, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Take me to the room where the black's all white
And the white's all black, take me back to the shack

She don't take no prisoners
She gonna give me the business
Got a dragon on my back
Yeah, it's a dragon attack

Get down


She was a predator
She headed the same
Immorally destroying the faith of the flame
Demon in a white dress
So evil she might just
Possess the breath of death
Excepting nothing
Nothing could bring back the vision
Saints causeway
Hearts beat in prison
She what she did to me
Put me before the visionary
So that would give the best of me an effigy
As I fleed the heat of a hab a dab

Dragon attack

Low down - she don't take no prisoners (get down)
Go down - gonna give me the business
No time - yeah, chained to the rack (get down)
Show time - got a dragon on my back
Show down - go find another customer
Slow down - I gotta make my way, ay

Yeah
Yeah, yeah
Ow
Get, get, get, get, get, get down, on my way
Get, get, get, get, get, get down, on my way
Get, get, get, get, get, get down
Get, get, get down

Alright

Ah, look out

Ow, yeah, right on

Dragon Attack

(Rave Remix)


Only available on the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' US promo CD. Length 4:18.
Remixed by Dave Ogilvie (known as 'Rave').
This is essentially an instrumental version of the album track, with some minor changes, but nothing you can really notice. This is a great version of the track, which really allows Brian's guitar to shine without the vocals obscuring it. It's a definite highlight of the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' album, though it does sound rather out of place among so many dance and rap versions.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Game' album page.

Fat Bottomed Girls

(Brian Malouf Remix)


Only available on the 'Jazz' Hollywood remaster CD. Length 4:21.
Remixed by Brian Malouf.
This mix is very similar to the original, with some rearranged and some new lyrics, and features some additional guitar by Brian.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Jazz' album page.

Lyrics:
Oh, won't you take me home tonight
Oh, down beside your red fire light
Oh, and you give it all you got
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round

Hey
I was just a skinny lad
Never knew no good from bad
But I knew life before I left my nursery, huh
Left alone with big fat fanny
She was such a naughty nanny
Heap big woman, you made a bad boy out of me
Hey, hey
Wow

I've been singing with my band
Across the water across the land
I've seen every blue eyed floozy on the way, hey
But their beauty and their style
Wear kind of smooth after a while
Take me to them dirty ladies every time
So come on

Oh, won't you take me home tonight
Oh, down beside your red fire light
Oh, and you give it all you got
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round
Hey

Hey, listen here
Now I've got mortgages on homes
I've got stiffness in my bones
Ain't no beauty queens in this locality
I tell you
Hope that I still get my pleasure
Still got my greatest treasure
Heap big woman you don't make a big man of me
Now get this

Oh, I know, you gonna take me home tonight, please
Oh, down beside that red fire light
Oh, you gonna let it all hang out
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round, yeah
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rocking world go round
Get on your bikes and ride

Oooh, yeah, oh yeah
Them fat bottomed girls
They get me (fat bottomed girls)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Alright, ride 'em come on
Fat bottomed girls
Yes, yes

Oh, they get me everytime
Them dirty ladies - you know
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Fat Bottomed Girls

(OK Mix)


Only available on the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' US promo CD. Length 3:55.
Remixed by Organized Konfusion.
This is a fairly good remix which loses the music, replacing it with new heavy drums and guitar, which has a similar feel to the original. It retains many of Freddie's vocals, which actually come from a different take, and a number of rap sections (in italics below), and contains samples from 'We Will Rock You', amongst others. This is definitely one of the better remixes from the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' compilation, and without the rap vocals could be an excellent mix.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Jazz' album page.

Ain't no beauty queens in this locality
Hope that I still get my pleasure

Lyrics:
Ooooh, I'm in love with my, love with my car

Oooooooh
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
With my hand on your grease gun
Oh, it's like a disease son
I'm in love with my car
Gotta feel for my automobile
Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar
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, love with my car)
Gotta feel for my automobile
I'm in love with my car (love with my, love with my car)
String back gloves in my automolove

(Love with my, love with my car)
(Love with my, love with my car)
(Love with my, love with my car)
(Love with my, love with my car)
(Love with my, love with my car)
(Love with my, love with my car)
(Love with my, love with my car)

Ogre Battle

(Nicholas Sansano Remix)

Lyrics:
Ha, ha, ha, ha

Now once upon a time
An old man told me a fable
When the piper is gone
And the soup is cold on the table
And when the black crow flies
To find a new destination
That is the sign

Come tonight
Come to the ogre sight
Come to ogre-battle-fight

He gives a great big cry
And he can swallow up the ocean
With a mighty tongue he catches flies
In the palm of a hand incredible size
One great big eye
Has a focus in your direction
Now the battle is won
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Come tonight
Come to the ogre sight
Come to ogre battle fight

Ha, ha, ha, ha
Cool

The ogre men are still inside
The two-way mirror mountain
You gotta keep down right out of sight
You can't see in but they can see out
'Oooh, keep a look out'
The ogre men are coming out
From the two-way mirror mountain
They're running up behind
And they're coming all about
Can't go east 'cos you gotta go south

Ogre men are going home
The great big fight is over
Bugle blow let trumpet cry
Ogre battle lives for evermore
Wow, oh, oh
You can come along
You can come along
Come to ogre battle

Details of the original version can be found on the 'Queen II' album page.

Lyrics:
Yeah, yeah
Fear me you Lords and Lady preachers
I descend upon your earth from the skies
I command your very souls you unbelievers
Bring before me what is mine

I stand before you naked to the eyes
I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust
I swear that you'll be mine
The seven seas of rhye

Sister - I live and lie for you
You are mine I possess you
Belong to you forever

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Storm the master-marathon I'll fly through
By flash and thunder fire and I'll survive
Then I'll defy the laws of nature
And come out alive
Then I'll get you

Be gone with you - you shod and shady senators
Give out the good, leave out the bad evil cries
I challenge the mighty Titan and his troubadours
And with a smile
I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye

I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye, ready Freddie
I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye
I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye, ready Freddie
I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye, yeah

Lyrics:
Can anybody find me somebody to love

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Oooh, oooh, oooh
Each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
(Take at a look at yourself) take a look in the mirror and cry (and cry)
Lord what you doing to me (yeah, yeah)
I have spent all my years in believing you (oooh, oooh, believing you)
But I just can't get no relief, Lord
Somebody (somebody), ooh somebody (somebody)
Can anybody find me somebody to love
Yeah

I work hard (he works hard) every day of my life
I work till I ache my bones
At the end (at the end of the day)
I take home my (goes home) hard earned pay all on my own (goes home on his own)
I get down (down) on my knees (knees)
And I start to pray (praise the lord)
Till the tears run down from my eyes (oooh, oooh, oooh)
Lord - somebody (somebody) ooh somebody (please)
Can anybody find me
Somebody to love

(He works hard)
Everyday (everyday) - I try and I try and I try
But everybody wants to put me down (oooooh)
They say I'm going crazy (oooooh)
They say I got a lot of water in my brain (ooooh)
I got no common sense
I (he's) got nobody left to believe
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oooh, yeah, yeah

(Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh)
Ooh, somebody, ooh (somebody)
Anybody find me somebody to love
(Anybody find me someone to love)

I got no feel, I've got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat (you just keep losing and losing)
I'm OK, I'm alright (he's alright, he's alright)
I ain't gonna face no defeat (yeah, yeah)
I just gotta get out of this prison cell (oooh, oooh, this prison cell)
Someday I'm gonna be free, Lord!

(Find me somebody to love, find me somebody to love)
(Find me somebody to love, find me somebody to love)
(Find me somebody to love) find me, find me, find me, find me, somebody to love (find me somebody to love)
(Find me somebody to love, find me somebody to low-oh-wow-oh-wow) Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooh
(Find me somebody to love, find me somebody to love)
(Somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody)
(Somebody find me somebody find me somebody to love)
Can anybody find me
Somebody to.....

Remixed by Michael Wagener.
This remix is basically the album version with identical lyrics, and additional percussion.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Sheer Heart Attack' album page.

Lyrics:
Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning I was dreaming I was Al Capone
There's a rumour going round, gotta clear outta town
Yeah, I'm smelling like a dry fish bone
Here come the law, gonna break down the door, gonna carry me away once more
Never, I never, I never want it any more
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know

Woo, hot

Rainy afternoon I gotta blow a typhoon and I'm playing on my slide trombone
Anymore, anymore, cannot take it anymore
Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know

Ow, hit 'em ma

Walking down the street, shooting people that I meet
With my rubber tommy water gun
Here come the deputy, he's gonna come and getta me
I gotta get me get up and run
They got the sirens loose
I ran right outta juice
They're gonna put me in a cell, if I can't go to heaven
Will they let me go to hell
Crazy
Stone cold crazy, you know

Stone Cold Crazy

(Trent Reznor Remix)


Available on the 'Queen Basic Bootlegs' US promo, and on a promo CD single. Length 3:49.
Remixed by Trent Reznor.
This is a superb reworked version, which has a much heavier sound, with an instrumental section and a reprise. It includes some studio dialogue at the start and end, and samples from other tracks including 'Sheer Heart Attack' and 'Dragon Attack'. It is also known as the 'Trash' mix on some bootlegs, and is generally considered to be one of the best Queen remixes ever produced.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Sheer Heart Attack' album page.

Lyrics:
Unknown voices: One. Right, take one. Right

Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning I was dreaming I was Al Capone

Under Pressure

(Mr Mixx Remix)


Only available on the 'Basic Queen Bootlegs' US promo CD. Length 3:58.
Remixed by Mr Mixx.
This remix loses the original music, replacing it with a percussion beat and DJ effects, with the bassline in a few places. The vocals are rearranged, often repeated, and some extra vocals are also present (the 'that's right' and 'hold it' vocals, shown in italics below). It's not the best remix, but not the worst either, and it least it retains quite a few of the vocals.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Hot Space' album page.

We Are The Champions

(Rick Rubin Remix)


Available on the 'Queen Basic Bootlegs' promo, the 'We Will Rock You' 1992 US regular CD and cassette releases, and a 12" promo single. Length 3:23.
This remix contains the original music, but features new percussion, and some additional vocals (presumably by Rick Rubin). These appear in italics below.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'News Of The World' album page.

Lyrics:
I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
(ain't a funkin')
But committed no crime (ain't a funkin', ain't a funkin')
And bad mistakes (ain't a funkin', got it, ha)
I've made a few (got it, ha)
I've had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I've come through
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers (ooooh, oooh)
'Cos we are the champions
Of the world

(Got it, ha)

I've taken my bows (hit me)
And my curtain calls
You've brought me fame and fortune
And everything that goes with it, I thank you all
(ain't a funkin', ain't a funkin')
But it's been no bed of roses (ain't a funkin')
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers (ooooh, oooh)
'Cos we are the champions

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
Oh, we are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers (ooooh, oooh)
'Cos we are the champions
Of the world

We Will Rock You

(Rick Rubin Remix)


Available on the 'No-One But You' single, the 'News Of The World' Hollywood CD, a 1992 US single, in the 'Queen Singles Collection 4' boxed set, and on some other releases. Length 4:59.
This is the only remix on this page which is available in the UK.
The first 23 seconds or so is mostly silent, while the first half of the track (upto 2:19) is similar to the original, with additional percussion and sound effects. The rest of the track has a new feel, with more complete drums and guitar fills, featuring Flea and Chad from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, presumably on bass and drums respectively.
The vocal towards the end ('what does it all mean') is possibly George Bush (senior), the final line is unknown, and the 'clap' lines are spoken, presumably by Rick Rubin. Any lyrics not from the original appear in italics below.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'News Of The World' album page.

Alternate Versions:
1. Promo Edit (2:25) (available on a French Promo CD only; this is apparently an edit of the track, with a similar arrangement to the original album version)
Lyrics:
Buddy you're a boy, make a big noise
Playing in the street, gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on your face
You big disgrace
Kicking your can all over the place

Shouting in the street gonna take on the world some day

Buddy you're an old man, poor man
Pleading with your eyes gonna make
You some peace some day
