BS Project Remix


Available on the Italian and French 12" singles. Length 5:49.
Remixed by M. Marcolin and Bob Salton.
This remix has a different feel to the others, with more piano and some other instruments. It also adds a fast dance style beat, but is not as annoying as many of the other mixes. This version has a lengthy instrumental intro.

BS Project Remix Edit


Available only in France on a 2-track CD or promo CD. Length 3:13.
Remixed by M. Marcolin and Bob Salton.
This mix is derived from the above full version, it starts at 1:15, then continues until 3:58. Then, the section from 3:29 to 3:58 is repeated, fading out from 3:46 onwards. It hence cuts out the introductory instrumental, and most of the outro.

It does not feature any of the original lyrics, but instead uses short excerpts from Under Pressure ('Live At Wembley'), a Freddie Singalong ('Live At Wembley'), Somebody To Love and The Prophet's Song.

Sexy Club Mix


Available on numerous releases, most commonly the UK 12" or CD singles. Length 10:17.
Remixed by Jam And Spoon.
This mix features a slow and repetitive build up, then a constant dance beat, and it retains only the vocals.
On the UK CD single there is a mastering error, which means that the first few seconds are lost, reducing the time to approx 10:14, although the sleeve states 10:53.
In my opinion, this is easily the worst version or remix of any Queen or related track which has ever been released, and to add to the insult, it's also one of the longest. If you can, avoid it, and count yourself lucky.
