This album was released as a double CD, a triple-LP, and was also given a DVD release. Essentially, it is a reissue of the 'We Will Rock You' video and DVD, but features two bonus tracks.

Although the content of 'Queen Rock Montreal' and 'We Will Rock You' is the same, there are some differences. By far the most noticeable is that 'Queen Rock Montreal' includes the full intro to 'Now I'm Here', which was originally edited, while 'Somebody To Love' and 'Love Of My Life' feature some additional dialogue. However, there are quite a few tracks which feature minor lyric additions/omissions, which are hard to spot on a casual listen. These were artificially added or removed on the original releases, rather than the 'Queen Rock Montreal' releases. The most blatant to spot is during the fast version of 'We Will Rock You', on the original releases there are some extra vocals, but the video footage when this happens shows that Freddie is not singing and besides which, he is holding the microphone down by his feet so they cannot possibly be genuine vocals. Another is 'God Save The Queen'; on the original release, Freddie says 'let's all get fucked' twice, once during footage of the audience, and again when he is on screen; he says it in exactly the same way so it has obviously been copied across. On 'Queen Rock Montreal' this has been rectified. Quite why these changes were made on the original releases is unknown; they are not to reduce the running time (in most cases it's only an odd word here or there), nor to remove offensive lyrics, and unless you are listening for it, you wouldn't spot the difference anyway.

 

Singles:


Introduction


Disc 1, track 1. Track length 1:59.
This track includes 'drone' noises, audience noise and thunderbolts, and a short bit of guitar before 'We Will Rock You' starts.

2. Queen Rock Montreal DVD Edit 1 (0:52) (used on the main menu on both discs)

[Roger and John begin 'Under Pressure']. Fuck off.

Lyrics:
Freddie: This is called 'Killer Queen'

She keeps a Moet Et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy
For Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation you can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise

She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

Freddie: Yeah

Ahhhhh
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 your hand on my grease gun, honey
Oh, it's like a disease son

I'm in love with my car (ooh, oh, yes)
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

You take my body - I give you heat
You say you hungry - I give you meat
I suck your mind - you blow my head
Make love inside your bed
Everybody get down make love
Get down make love
Get down make love
Get down make love

Everytime I get high - wanna come down
Everytime I get up - you say you wanna cool down
You say it's enough - in fact it's too much
Everytime I wanna
Get down, get down, get down baby
Yeah


(Ad-libbed vocal section)

Get down make love
Get down make love
Get down make love
Get down make love

Everytime I get high - wanna come down
Everytime I get up - you say you wanna cool down
You say it's enough - in fact it's too much
Everytime I wanna
Get down, get down, get down, get down, get down, get down, get down make love


Freddie: Get down everybody. Brian's gonna play piano in a minute, when he gets to it.

Save Me

According to the liner notes of the 2011 reissue of 'The Game', this track was recorded at the first show on the 24th November.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Game' album page.

Lyrics:
Freddie: This is from an album called 'The Game', it's called 'Save Me'

It started off so well
They said we made a perfect pair
I clothed myself in your glory and your love
How I loved you
How I cried

The years of care and loyalty
Were nothing but a sham it seems
The years belie we lived a lie
I love you 'til I die

Save me, save me, save me
I can't face this life alone
Save me, save me, ooooh
I'm naked and I'm far from home

The slate will soon be clean
I'll erase the memories
To start again with somebody new
Was it all wasted
All that love

I hang my head and I advertise
A soul for sale or rent
I have no heart, I'm cold inside
I have no real intent

Give it to me
Save me, save me, save me
I can't face this life alone
Save me, save me, ooohh
I'm naked and I'm far from home

Each night I cry, still believe the lie
I love you, 'til I die
Yes, ah

Save me, yeah, save me, oooh, save me
Don't let me face my life alone
Save me, save me, ooh, oh, oh, ooh
I'm naked and I'm far from home

Oooh, oooh

Now I'm Here

Just a new man

But you knew my name on sight

Don't worry babe I'm safe and sound
Down in the dungeon just Peaches 'n' me
Don't I love you so
Yes you made me live again

Did that, baby

Yeah
Ooh, a thin moon me in a smoke screen sky
Where beams of your lovelight chase
Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain
With rain running down my face
Your matches still light up the sky
Many a tear lives on in my eye, yeah
Down in the city just Hoople 'n' me


Roger: Woo

Brian: Are you in the mood for um, singing? You can give us a little help with this. This is 'Love Of My Life'. Do you remember this?

Love of my life - you've hurt me
You've broken my heart and now you leave 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 don't know it


Brian: That's alright

Love of my life - don't leave me
You've stolen my love, 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 - I still love you
I still love you
I still love you, love you, love you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Ohh hurry back, hurry back

Lyrics:
Um, boom, bah, bah
Um, boom, bah, bay
Um doom dah, dah doo bah
Da da boom da da boom

Pressure pushing down on me
Pushing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Um, bah, bah, bay
Um, bah, bah, bay
Eh, day, dah
Eh, day, dah
That's OK

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
Let me out
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Day, day, day
Day, day, day, day, day

Chipping around - kick my brains around the floor
These are the days, it never rains but it pours
Eh doh day dee
Ey day dah dah
Ey doh dee
De dop

People on streets
Eh, dah, dee, dah, day
People on streets
Eh, dah, dee, dah, dee, dah, dee, dah

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
Let me out
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher, higher, high
Pressure on people
People on streets

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why - why - why

Love
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking

Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love, give love, give love
Give love, give love, give love, give love, give love
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to
Care for the people on the
Edge of the night
And love dares you to
Change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves

Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

Keep Yourself Alive


Disc 2, track 2. Track length 3:29.
This track comprises an improvisation (0:58) and the song itself (2:32). It segues into the Drum & Timpani solo.
This track was omitted from the original 60 minute 'We Will Rock You' release.
According to the DVD commentary, the improvisation was a partly improvised studio track called 'Sex Show'.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Queen' album page, while details of other improvisations can be found on the Live Solos & Improvisations page.

Alternate Versions:
1. Download Edit (2:20) (released as a download to promote the album) (features the first 2 seconds of the track; it then jumps over the improvisation and retains 0:57 until 2:04; it then features 10 seconds from the 2:11 to 2:35 section, then 2:35 onwards; it then features part of the Drum & Timpani solo - the first second, then 0:46 to 0:49. Altogether, it's a fairly decent edit although the ending is a little odd)
Lyrics: (the Download Edit loses the lyrics upto and including 'sex show', and adds 'Shake' from the next track)
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oooh, ma, ma, ma, oh, oh
Ha
We're gonna shake it out
Shake it out
Shake it out

Ooh yeah
Lower
Little bit lower
A little bit lower
A little bit lower, eh

Hey, ooh, ooh, ooh
My bay, bay, bay, bay, sex show

Keep yourself alive

I was told a million times of all the troubles in my way
Grow a little wiser, little better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers, and I rode a million miles
Still be where I started, bread and butter for a smile
Sold a million mirrors in a shop in alley way
But I never saw my face in any window any day
Now they say your folks are telling you be a superstar
Tell you just be satisfied, stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive

Boogie

Hit me
Yeah, yeah

Well I loved a million women in a belladonic haze
And I ate a million dinners brought to me on silver trays
Give me everything I need, feed my body and my soul
Grow a little bigger, maybe that can be my goal
Told a million times of all the people in my way
How I'd have to keep on trying and get better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers, rode a million miles
Still be where I started, same as when I started

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive

Lift your head to the stars
The world's for your taking
Oh yeah, 'cos you're a hero

So you feel like it's end of story
But you feel pretty satisfactory
But let me tell you my friend
This could be like the end
But the continuation is
Yours for the making
'Cos you're a hero

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Hero, hero, yeah

Lyrics: (the 'Queen Rock Montreal' releases feature the additional two words in red)
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
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

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?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here,
right here

Oooh yeah, oooh yeah

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me

Anyway the wind blows
Yeah


Freddie: Anyway the wind blows. Right on

I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I've come through

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
'Cos we are the champions
Of the world

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

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

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