Unreleased Queen Songs

This page includes full details (where known) of all unreleased Queen tracks, listed in alphabetical order. It only lists unreleased songs (as opposed to unreleased versions of songs), and where possible full lyrics are given. However, because they are unreleased, the known details are very few and may be inaccurate.

Although these tracks are all unreleased, several of them, including Silver Salmon, Sandbox, Dog With A Bone, I Guess We're Falling Out and Grand Dame, are as good as the tracks which appeared in their place on the various albums. If you can get hold of any of these tracks, most are highly recommended.

Affairs


Like 'Grand Dame', this track is believed to originate from the early 'Innuendo' sessions in 1989, although some people believe it comes from 'The Miracle' sessions. The track features the whole band, with about half the lyrics in place and about half typical ad-libs from Freddie. The song sounds like it would have fitted in well on the 'Made In Heaven' album, which could suggest that the track wasn't developed any further so the band couldn't complete it. Length 3:25.

It's too late to go, oh, oohh
It's too late to go now
'Cos you've left it for a very long time

Always On My Own


This is a faked demo and one of the most pointless ones yet. Although claimed to be a Queen demo, it simply includes the first verse of the 2nd early version of 'Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow', followed by an echo effect, the Hybrid Edit of 'Living On My Own', then a very short poor quality clip of Freddie saying "And from me and the boys, from Queen, thank you very much, sayonara", with a few sound effects thrown in along the way. Naturally, the two songs do not mix well at all as they have a completely different style and tempo, and they would have been hard pushed to come up with something less convincing. Length 5:00.

A New Life Is Born


This track was almost certainly written by Freddie and was intended for 'The Miracle'. The first 27 seconds of the track have already been released, at the start of 'Breakthru'. However, the vocals 'somehow I have to make this final Breakthru'..... now' are missing, and instead it goes into a slow song, featuring just Freddie at the piano, which cuts off rather abruptly. As the lyrics have yet to be fully developed, Freddie does his normal ad-libbing. Whether this song progressed at all from this demo is unknown, possibly it only got this far before being edited and combined with 'Breakthru'. Length 1:22.
There is another version circulating which adds drums and keyboards to Freddie's vocals and piano, and loses the 'Breakthru' vocals, which is far from convincing and sounds nothing like Queen. Length 0:59.

Lyrics:
When love breaks up
When the dawn lights wakes up
A new life is born

There's no waters blowing down
There's no rain
(ad-libbed) to the sea
Get lonely
Dee-dee-dee
Dah, day, dah
Dee-dee-dee, by the sea
There's muddy waters
In my hands
Across the
(ad-libbed)
Dah, dah, dah

Assassin


This is easily the most sought-after Queen related recording. It is an out-take from 'Innuendo', and some sources suggest it is either an early version of, or very similar to, the title track. This may explain why it wasn't used on 'Made In Heaven', or alternatively it is just not complete, or just not very good. Very little else is known about the track.

There are at least two MP3's circulating which claim to be demos of this track - one is an incredibly awful track at 4:39 which is painfully bad, featuring dreadful music and just about the worst singer I have ever heard. If this has fooled anyone into thinking it's genuine then they need clinical help. The other track is 8:35 long, and is actually 'Kashmir' by Led Zepellin, but edited so that it is an instrumental track, dominated by guitar and drums. Neither are particularly convincing or in any way the usual Queen style.

Back To Storm / Little Boogie


These two tracks are believed to originate from just after 'The Works' sessions in 1984, or possibly during the 'A Kind Of Magic' sessions in 1985 or 1986.
'Back To Storm' is a studio demo, which features Freddie, Roger and John, and is a fast paced, piano and drum dominated track, with a similar feel to Sandbox. It features some dialogue at the start and end, and vocals for the first half of the song, with the rest instrumental. Some people think the main lyric is 'coming on far too strong' but I think 'back to storm' is definitely nearer. Length 1:19, or 1:32 with the dialogue.
'Little Boogie' is a piano demo of the same track, performed by Freddie, which some people claim is a fake derived from 'Back To Storm', but to me it sounds genuine, as there is a different section at about 0:11, and a tapping sound from the piano keys throughout which doesn't appear to be in the band version. Length 0:35.
In addition, there are two fan remixes, namely 'mixed version' lasting 1:19, and 'ultimate Chimera demo remix' lasting 2:53, which will no doubt be passed off as genuine demos at some point. Both tracks repeat sections of the of the original versions to create more complete mixes.

Lyrics:
Freddie: Ready? One, two, three, four

Soul searchin' brother, you've been lying to me
Gotten on with my baby
(unknown lyrics)
(Ad-libbed vocals)


You're telling me you're not my baby
Telling me wrong
You're not my, ba, ba, and then I'm
(unknown lyric) storm
(Ad-libbed vocals)
Coming on back to storm
Yeah, yeah


Freddie: Very good, ha, ha. It's gotta go somewhere, but it just, er, wasn't (unknown dialogue)

Batteries Not Included


This track is rumoured to be from the 'News Of The World' sessions, and written by either John Deacon or Brian May. No recordings of the track have surfaced, so whether it ever existed, or still exists, is doubtful. It's also possible that this was just a working title of another track, but we'll probably never know.

Battle Scene


This is an instrumental track recorded at the Townhouse Studios in 1986 for the 'Highlander' film, but ultimately not used. It is a very atmospheric track, with no vocals, drums, or bass, instead featuring extensive keyboards and guitar. It would probably work well within the film, but sounds rather odd out of context. The track is also known as 'Battle Theme', but it is completely different to the 1980 track of the same name from the 'Flash Gordon' album. Length 3:34.

Brother Of Mine


This track is rumoured to originate from 'The Miracle' sessions in 1988 or 1989, but nothing else is known.

Dog With A Bone

(also known as 'Goodtimes')


This track, recorded during sessions for 'The Miracle', is possibly the best unreleased Queen track. It was recorded on 8 April 1988 and played (in a modified form) at the Fan Club Convention, and is an almost rock-blues style jam. The song is sung as a duet between Roger and Freddie, and also features great guitar throughout from Brian. There are at least three different versions of the track available, as follows:
Full Convention Version:
This is the full version of the track, which begins with some studio dialogue, then features the main song, convention messages, a guitar solo from Brian, further dialogue from Brian, and a guitar outro. Length 7:08.
Actual Convention Version:
This is the track which was actually played at the convention, and is the same as the above version, but loses the studio dialogue at the start, while Brian's guitar, further dialogue, and guitar outro, is replaced by a reprise of the 'Dog With A Bone' chorus. Length 5:44.
Edited Version:
This version is an edit which loses the fan club messages and outro to produce a standalone track. It also loses some of the partly-improvised verse towards the end of the song. Length 4:39.
Lyrics: (the full convention version features all lyrics, apart from the last line. The actual convention version loses the lyrics in red and orange, and the edited version loses the lyrics in red and blue)
Freddie: Yeah, you can do that. Let's start from the top please. From the lead.

A one, two, a three, four
Ooh, oooh

Hey, you say you won't, you can't give me any more love
You say you will, you can give up what I've got babe
You make me high when I talk on the phone, hey
You know I gotta ring up your number when I know you ain't home
'Cos you gotta hold on me baby like a dog with a bone, hey, hey
Dog with a bone

One more time baby, now
Ooh, oooh

Hey, you say you won't, you can't give me any more love
But you say that you will you can give up what I've got babe
You make me high, hey, when you talk on the phone
Hey, you know I gotta ring up your number when you know I ain't-a home
(Hey baby, hold on me babe) 'Cos you gotta hold on me baby, like a dog with a bone, yeah, hey, hey
Dog with a bone
Dog with a bone, yeah
Ooh, oooh

Do a solo baby
Move over, over let Brian take over


(Unknown lyric) when you talk on the phone
Ring up your number when I know you ain't home
'Cos you gotta hold on me baby, like a dog with a bone
Hey, hey, like a dog with a bone, yeah
Yeah
Uh-ha, oh, ooohhh

You say you won't (you won't), you can't (you can't) give me any more love
But you say (but you say) you will (you will) you can (you can) give up what I've got
You make me high when you talk on the phone

'Cos you gotta hold on me baby, hey, like a dog with a bone, yeah
Like a dog with a bone
Hold on me baby
Yeah, won't let go
Like a dog with a bone
Won't let go


Oooh
Get the double tempo
(Ooooh) Hey, hey, hey
(Improvised ad-libs)
You say you won't you can't gimme any more love (won't let go)
You say you will, you say you will,
(improvised ad-libs) give up what I've got
You say you won't you can't gimme more
You say you will but you give me all I got babe
You say you won't (you won't) you can't (you can't)

You will, you gotta
Yeah
Ooooh-eee
Alright


Roger: John Deacon. Well hello fan club, uh. Sorry it hasn't got me on it. Must have ruined it for all of you, but there you go
John: Hello, John here. I hope you're having a good time. And Jacky, in return for us doing this musical offering for you, is after we've finished she's going to come on and do a strip for you
Freddie: Hey, I hope everybody's having a good time (good time, good time, good time, good time), I hope everybody's having a, having a good time (good time, good time, good time)

Brian: Yes they probably were having a good time, yes, yes, before they heard all this nonsense. Hmm, where's the microphone, which one? This one, hello it's Brian here. 'Fraid I've lost my voice because I've been bellowing. Oh God, God I wish someone would shut that bloody guitarist up, it's dreadful. Well actually we'd love to be with you, we're sorry we're not with you but we're too busy making silly noises and thinking up new chords like this one and um, and having mid life crises and things. You see it's all very easy for you but we have a lot of work to do so we're going to play you this song instead. It goes like this.

Brian: Yeah, you see they don't even make microphones properly these days, they don't even make guitar amplifiers that don't blow up all the bloody time, I don't know what the problem with the world is these days. But I hope you're having a lovely time at the fan club convention, and I hope you'll come to the next one, actually, we will come to the next one I promise. Ah.

Dog with a bone

Face It Alone


This is the second most sought after Queen track, second only to 'Assassin'. The full version is apparently over 10 minutes long, and only edited versions are currently available. The track has been played at multiple Queeen conventions, in which Greg Brooks mentions that the track was recorded in the same week as 'Khashoggi's Ship' and 'Rain Must Fall', placing it sometime in 1988 during 'The Miracle' sessions, although it was also worked on for the 'Innuendo' album.
The track is fairly basic, dominated by vocals and guitar, with little percussion and bass guitar. The lyrics are fairly minimal, with typical ad-libs from Freddie, suggesting it to be a early version of the track. It's not the best unreleased Queen demo, but it is an interesting track and a great teaser for the full length version.

Full Studio Demo
This is the longest version of the track which is currently available. The track begins with a small amount of studio dialogue from Freddie, and most of the lyrics feature overdubs. The vocals end at around 1:53, and the rest of the track is instrumental. Despite it's name, this is only an edit of the full version. Length 5:15.
Instrumental Guitar Demo
This demo just features Brian on guitar, with additional guitar overdubs throughout. It features minimal percussion in places, and includes a very small amount of faint vocals, probably from headphone leakage. Towards the end of the track, Brian varies from the normal melody of the track and experiments more, turning the track into a typical guitar showpiece. Length 3:53.
Excerpt 1 / Demo Version 1
This excerpt is similar to the second excerpt, and in turn similar to the full studio demo. However, those versions feature overdubs of Freddie's vocals, where he sings different lyrics over his own vocals. On this version, there is only one vocal, so it may be the original take before the overdubs were added. The first line of lyrics is also slightly different, with Freddie singing 'when something so near' instead of 'when something so dear'. Obviously this is only a tiny difference, but it is definitely different between the two versions. Length 1:39.
Excerpt 2 / Demo Version 2 / Overdub Version
This is an edit of the above full demo, from around 0:27 to 2:18. Length 1:50.
Different Mix
This version includes the first 3:32 of the 'Full Studio Demo' above, however, at approximately 1:06, the line 'there's something' is replaced by a new verse, lasting approximately 0:27. This new verse is in vastly inferior quality, but is very interesting, coming from a different take, and featuring completely different lyrics to the other excerpts available. Length 3:53.
Convention Version
This track simply consists of version 1 and version 2, along with dialogue from Greg Brooks at the start, finish, and between the tracks. Length 4:36.
Demo Version From Greg Brooks' CD
This track is a fake which combines excerpts 1 and 2 above, but edits them together to make one longer track. Between 1:28 and 1:33 the track starts to fade out, then suddenly goes louder again, and at 1:31 a female voice appears to say 'OK' which matches exactly the audience noise on the convention version. Length 3:18.
Full Studio Version (2)
As if there weren't enough edits and versions available, this one has also been circulated, which includes the above full studio version, followed by the instrumental guitar demo. To further confuse things this is also labelled as the 'full studio version' despite the fact that it's clearly two different versions. Length 9:19.
Faked Demo Version
This is a faked version which features a 21 second excerpt of the track, repeated several times. This was available for a while before the other versions, so obviously it's pretty redundant now. Length 1:49.
Lyrics: (The full version includes the lyrics in blue, red and white, excerpt 1 includes the lyrics in white and orange, and excerpt 2 includes the lyrics in white and red; the Different Mix includes the lyrics in blue, red and white, but the line 'there's something' is replaced by the additional verse below)
Freddie: Just have to give me that first guitar, after this you have to give me a guitar entry, yeah?
Oooh, ooh
Freddie: Not there
Freddie: Guitar


Freddie: Out

When something so dear near (and so far)
And dear to life (tonight)
Explodes inside (falls down inside)
You feel your soul (you cry till you hurt)
Is set on fire (go out and clear)

There's something
De-de-de-de-oh
De-de-de-ay-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohh

When the moon has lost it's clothes
And the sun begins to go down

(Unknown lyric)

'Different Mix' Additional Verse Lyrics:
Your earth is your own
You're in charge of your day
Master of your home
In the end
In the end
You'll have to face it alone

Feelings


This track was written by Brian, and is believed to have originated in 1971, before John joined the band.
It is a very heavy jam, dominated by guitar and drums, with fairly minimal lyrics. It later evolved into the track 'Feelings, Feelings', and while it is musically quite different, you can tell that they have the same origins. This version is more difficult to find, and whilst it is interesting to hear the development of the track, 'Feelings, Feelings' is of more interest. Length 2:09.

Lyrics:
Ooooh
You say
Search at the speed of light
I don't wanna be working baby
They say you
(unknown lyric) feeling

Oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, oh-oh, yeah-yeah, yes
Got to get a rid of
This feeling, feeling
I've got to get rid of this feeling
I've got to
I've been waiting so long
To get to feel babe
Oh, I've been waiting so long
It's alright
I've got to feel
I've got to sail away
Oh wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow

Ow

Yeah
I feel I

Feelings, Feelings


This track was recorded for the 1977 album 'News Of The World', and was unreleased for many years, until it's inclusion in the 2011 double disc reissue of the album. As such, details of the released version can now be found on the 'News Of The World' album page, and details of a further demo can be found on the Queen Demos pages.

Feel Like


This track from 1981 has an unknown writer, although it could be a group effort. It later evolved into 'Under Pressure', although it is different enough to be considered a separate track. It does not feature the familiar bassline, but some of the drum and guitar parts are present; it is a heavy track, with piano throughout (although it is quiet in places), the lyrics are rather undeveloped, and the vocals are quite difficult to make out.

The track is approximately 4:58 in length. However, there are at least three versions available; two versions are essentially the same at 4:58, one is great quality and one is poor quality (and could be from the convention as there is background audience noise). The third is 4:48, in quite good quality but slightly muffled; it runs slightly faster than normal, and loses about three seconds at the start. However, they all seem to be from the same original recording.

Lyrics:
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ahh-ahh
Every day, every night
I see you walking by with that other guy
I see your face, you're not satisfied
I know you wanna, you wanna hide

I feel like, I feel like, I feel like
Do you know it, know that, know that
Come on baby, you give me the come on
I love you baby, come on and let's make it right

Ooh, you're so good looking and baby
You're so smooth
I know you had
Come on baby, wish me luck
I wanna be there, in that truck

Come on and give me that feeling
Come on give it, oh, that feeling
Oh, I want you rockin' on, right by my side
Come on, come on, and take me at a time
Yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah come on and get me, get me
I wanna take you with me
But don't you let me, let me, oh come on
Let me give you a good time
Ohh yeah, give you a good time
Like the one you never had

Promises, they're no good for me
I've heard them all
Every day and night you know I'm OK
Funny things happen, I don't know what you're talking about
Make you, you make me
I know I wish that I had
Just you, just you, I want you, I love you
It's been so hard
Take me into your arms
Feel like

Give me the pieces, pieces of your heart
I love you, I love you, love you, love you, love you
And make a big start
Brand new start
Let's make a brand new start

Ooh, let's make a brand new start
I'm gonna mend that broken heart
Oh, I need you baby
Come on and baby, tell me what you feel
You can have me, we'll make a deal
Broken pieces left on the side
Oh, come on don't hide
I love you, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
That's 'cos I love you
I love you, I love you
Oh, come on and take me
'Cos I need your
I need your loving

Friends In Pain


This is rumoured to be a John Deacon track which originates from the 'A Kind Of Magic' sessions. However, very little is known about the song, as unfortunately no copies of the track appear to have surfaced anywhere.

Good Time


Not to be confused with 'Dog With A Bone' (which is sometimes known as 'Goodtimes'), this is a faked demo featuring the backing track to 'I Want It All', overlaid with various vocal excerpts from Freddie, mostly taken from 'Don't Stop Me Now'. It is badly done, and utterly unconvincing in every way. Length 0:35.
Lyrics:
I'm having such a good time
Good time
Good time
Alright

Good time
I'm having a good time


(Reversed: Floating around in ecstasy, so)

Good time
Good time
Yeah

Grand Dame


Like 'Affairs', this track is believed to originate from the early 'Innuendo' sessions in 1989, although some people believe it comes from 'The Miracle' sessions. It is a fast paced instrumental track, dominated by drums and guitars, and is an excellent track which could have fitted in well on the album with more work. The track includes the end of another take or another track, of length 0:21, then a nearly full take of 1:59, which fades out at the end. Length 2:20.

Hangman


This track is believed to have been written by Freddie during his time with Wreckage, and was performed at early Queen concerts, between 1970-1973 and occasionally in 1975 and 1976. It was also recorded in the studio, possibly in 1972, and pressed onto an acetate, though this studio version is privately owned and has not been circulated. However, there are a number of live versions available, and Andy's Queen Page has three transcriptions. It is a very heavy track and is dominated by drums and guitar.
Two live versions of this track has been 'officially' released as part of the Top 100 Bootlegs project, on the bootlegs 'Procession', recorded at Colston Hall, Bristol, England, on 29 November 1973 (length 5:51). and 'First Live Attack', recorded at the Budokan Hall, Tokyo, Japan on 1 May 1975 (length 5:56). The lyrics below are to the Budokan Hall version. The structure and lyrics of the two versions are similar, but the first version is fairly poor quality and so the lyrics are hard to accurately decipher. The second version is in much better quality and is separately available on MP3's.

Lyrics:
Freddie: We're gonna do a number that we haven't done for a long, long while, but as this is our last show on the world tour, it's very nice it's in Tokyo, we'll do it especially for you. You can clap your hands slowly, this is called 'Hangman'.

I know all about you
They call you Mr. T
You are a barber's son
You've got the rope, feel me
You use, you use rope that you believe
Oh, oh, I tell you

Have you made any more pork pies for me?
Hangman, says you make a very nice cup of tea, oh yes you do

Hangman, hangman, waiting for me
Hang that rope from the highest tree
I don't want to beg for mercy
Hangman, hang me, hangman, hang me

I know all about you
They call you, they call you Mr. C
You did a very good job
Oh, you'll go down, you'll go down, go down in history
Baby, baby, I'm telling you

Have you made any more pies for me?
Hangman, says they're very nice, they're very nice for me, oh yes they are nice

Hangman, hangman, waiting for me
Hang that rope from the highest tree
I don't want to beg for mercy
Hangman, hang me, hang me
Oooh

Hey

Hangman, why do you keep calling, why do you keep calling
Why do you keep calling me, oooh, why
You'll go down, you'll go down, down and down in history
Baby, baby, I'm telling you, ooooh
You say you're afraid of dying
You say, you're just tired of living, yeah

Now you say you're tired of living
Hangman says he gonna let you go
Now you say you're afraid of dying
Hangman, he says he won't let you go
Hangman, hang me
Hangman, hang me
Hangman, hang me
Hangman
Oh, gonna see me die
Gonna watch me die
Oh, gonna die, gonna die, gonna die, gonna die
Gonna see me, see me die

You gonna come and watch me die
Hey, ooh yeah
Gonna come and watch me die on a Saturday morning
Gonna come and watch me die on a Saturday morning
Please don't let me go, no, please don't let me go
Yeah, oh yeah

(unknown lyric) on a Saturday morning
Please don't let me go, no, please don't let me go, yeah
Oh yeah, oh
Gonna die in the morning, yeah

One, two, three, four, yeah, yeah
Oh, gonna watch me die, please don't cry, don't cry
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ohhh

I Guess We're Falling Out


This track, written by Brian, is an excellent song, which would have fitted well on either 'A Kind Of Magic' or 'The Miracle', for which it was intended. There are two copies circulating, a short genuine demo and a faked longer one, which adds bits of other tracks to make it more complete. Both versions begin with the beat from 'My Baby Loves Me'.
Demo Version:
This version contains the song for 2:08 before a slow instrumental section and a piano outro, which then cuts off very abruptly. Length 2:36.
Faked Demo:
This version contains the same 2:08 opening section as the above edit, then cuts into the 'Hang On In There' demo, then repeats various sections, including one of the verses in full, before ending with the drum crash from the end of 'Hammer To Fall'. Length 4:30.
Lyrics:
You stabbed your knife right in my back
Was it just something that I might have said
Does this mean we're falling out
I guess this means that our love has fallen out
If you wanna make a go

(Ad-libbed lyrics) I will stay

I guess we're falling out
It was just one gone and gone away
I guess we're falling out
Guess we're falling out
Da, da, da, I wanna stay


(An ad-libbed verse)

I guess we're falling out
It was just one long race
I guess we're falling out
Falling out
Yeah, yeah, yeah, falling out, falling out, yeah
Two, three, four

Lost In Soul


This track is a faked demo, but one of the more convincing ones. It features audience noise at the start and end, and Greg Brooks saying 'Property Of Queen Productions' to make it sound like it is a convention recording. At the start of the track is a count-in by Freddie which comes from the 'Live Instrumental' of 'Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow'. The music is fairly heavy, and has some Queen trademarks, with Brian-esque guitar throughout and ad-libs by Freddie, but it's definitely a fake. Length 2:54.

My Secret Fantasy


This 'Innuendo' track was probably written by John (and possibly Freddie as well), and is dominated with synthesisers and drums, with an almost funky feel. The lyrics are fairly undeveloped and many are ad-libbed. The track was recorded in 1990, but it doesn't fit in with the rest of the 'Innuendo' album at all. Two versions are available, originating from the studio or a Queen convention (which is the same version but with audience noise). Length 2:34.

Robbery


This track was written by either Roger or Brian, and was recorded in 1990 for 'Innuendo'. It is a fairly heavy song, dominated by guitars, and has vocals for the first 30 seconds, but the rest is instrumental. Two versions are available, originating from the studio or a Queen Convention (which is the same version but with audience noise). Length 1:58.
Lyrics:
There's been a robbery
Who done it?
They got away scot free
What a dirty job
Round up the usual suspects
Ba, da, da, da, da, dah
Ba, da, da, da, da

Rock And Roll Medley


Queen played a number of cover versions at their early concerts, and apparently a studio version was pressed onto a one-sided 10" acetate. It is believed to include 'Jailhouse Rock', 'Stupid Cupid' and 'Bama Lama Bama Loo'. However, it could also include parts of 'Be Bop A Lula', 'Shake Rattle And Roll' and 'Big Spender', as these were also performed at the time.

Sandbox


This is an instrumental track, featuring lots of piano, bass and drums, but no guitar, and only occasional ad-libbed vocals from Freddie. It was recorded in 1979 during sessions for 'The Game', some sources list it as an early version of 'Coming Soon' but it is different enough to be considered a separate track altogether. It could well have originated from Freddie or John as the piano and bass are quite dominant; as there is no guitar at all it is probably fair to say that Brian's involvement was minimal, at least at that stage. The track is very fast paced, and it is possibly the best unreleased demo around; as it is, it's an amazing track, but with guitar and proper vocals from Freddie, it could be unbeatable. MP3's of the track originate from the Queen fan club convention and so feature Greg Brooks saying "Property Of Queen Productions" throughout, although there are variations which edit this out by repeating parts of the original, lasting 2:41. Length 3:00.

Self Made Man


This track is believed to have been written by Brian, and was recorded in 1990 for 'Innuendo'. It is dominated by drums and keyboards, and the vocals are mainly sung by Brian, with some from Freddie. There are essentially two versions available, which are similar but have changes, originating from the studio or a Queen Convention (which adds audience noise). The convention version has a longer instrumental intro, with the vocals starting at 0:52, compared to 0:43 on the studio version. The two tracks then appear to be the same, but the convention version fades out about 29 seconds earlier. A 2:45 edit of the convention version is also available. Lengths 4:19 (convention) and 4:39 (studio).
An 'Irish Club Mix' also exists which is a fan remix, containing some vocals from 'You Take My Breath Away' and guitar from 'Chinese Torture'. It has some interesting elements, but cuts out abruptly so presumably a full length mix exists somewhere too. Length 2:16.

Lyrics:
Ooh

See your face - you've got no-one to love you back
You better, better win this place - you know it's the promised land
Don't let it hold you
Don't let it
You better
You bet it
It's gonna hold you
You bet it's gonna take control
That tears your soul

Trust - that'll make you self believe
To be a self made man
Turn that stuff - that defines your role to be, ooh
To be a self made man
Get a heavy job - don't let them moguls waste your time (she's going down the line)
To be a self made man

(Some undecipherable lyrics)

Do you wanna be my honey?
Do you wanna be my girl?
Do you have the time to meet me?

Do you wanna be my honey?
Do you wanna be my girl?
Do you have the time to meet me?
Yeah

Self made, self made man

Ooh, girl gotta make yourself believe
Gotta turn that stuff, see your face, know I'm a made man
In this place, known promised land
Self made man

Self
Be a self made man
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do, be a self made man
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do, be a self made man
Self made man
Self made man

Silver Salmon


This track is believed to have been written by Tim Staffell. The track is very, very heavy, with powerful drums and guitar, and good vocals from Freddie; it sounds like a live recording, but it definitely is not. There is debate about when the track originates from, as some people believe it was recorded for the 'Queen' or 'Queen II' albums between 1972 and 1974, and some people believe it was recorded for the 'News Of The World' album in 1977, due to Freddie's vocal performance and the use of rototoms on the track. Some sources also suggest that the track features Barry Mitchell on bass, instead of John, but apparently this rumour was started by somebody trying to sell an acetate CD of the track.
There are a number of versions of this track available, I have heard four recordings which are the same track but in varying quality, ranging from very good to very poor. The song lasts for typically 3:00, but some MP3's include upto 8 seconds of dialogue at the start. Some tracks also appear to be slightly faster than others, reducing the time to 2:54, but otherwise they are the same.
In addition to the standard versions, there is also a 2:38 edited version; this is identical to normal but at the end, an echo/phasing effect is applied to the drum/guitar, to give it a very sudden and definite ending.

Lyrics: (the dialogue at the start is only present in some versions)
Freddie: Try and put a bit of Silver Salmon, I know he doesn't know it but he might just play on, just put, just the rhythm, see if

Like silver salmon
She falls
They're all burning
Even at a
(unknown lyric) yeah
Deep inside they're all burning

Look out silver salmon
Look out, look out, look out the silver salmon

All along the silver skies, ah
More and in learning
All the need for silver, ah
Went away

Salmon
Look out, look out silver salmon
Ooh, yeah

Seems to me sometimes the trees
She burns leaves
Her body lies a burning
And falls into the cold sunrise

Ooh, ooh, ow
Ooh
Silver, silver salmon
Silver, silver
Riding along the silver salmon
She'll ride the burning sky, yeah

Victory


Presumably intended for 'Hot Space', this track is believed to have started out as a Queen track. It was later recorded (but not released) as duet between Freddie and Michael Jackson, and may also have been recorded by The Jacksons for their 1984 album of the same name (if so, it is also unreleased). However, none of these three versions have been released, or are available on MP3's, so very little is known about the track.

Woe


This track is rumoured to originate from either the 'A Night At The Opera' or 'A Day At The Races' sessions. Nothing else is known about the track, whether it still exists, or whether it evolved into another song.
