a new song by Freddie Mercury comes to life and it’s absolutely incredible!

An unearthed song, ‘Time Waits for No One’ A stripped-down version of “Time” by Freddie Mercury has resurfaced more than 30 years after it was recorded.

Dave Clark vividly remembers first discussing Freddie Mercury’s possible participation on the concept album of his 1986 musical, Time. “I chatted to Freddie…. he was excited by the project, and the collaboration, on the song ‘Time’, was a triumph.

Freddie’s humour was one of the things that made working with him such a delight for Clark. The original recording of the song ‘Time’, which Clark co-wrote with John Christie, came out on the soundtrack for the musical, produced with layers of backing vocals and heavy drums.

🔸”It’s the prime example what we were talking about before, I mean, the track ‘Breakthru’ sort of stemmed from Roger, really, it’s basically his track. But the sort of a capella vocal bit in front was from someone else, as we’ve said: we have 30 tracks, and that was a little piece that I thought was quite good, and I didn’t want it to go amiss, and I just said, ‘Oh, well, we’ll just put it in front of “Breakthru”.’ It’s basically another song, sort of seem to go away quite nicely, so, we just snipped it.”

18 June 1976 – Queen released ‘You’re My Best Friend’ bw ”39′, in the UK. Both tracks are from the bands fourth studio album, ‘A Night At The Opera.’

This enduring, heartfelt song was written by John Deacon for his lovely wife Veronica Tetzlaff and it remains one of Queens best-selling singles of all time.

John wrote this song using an electric piano, a Wurlitzer, and when he was wanting to incorporate the instrument with his lyrics. Freddie Mercury did not want to play it, “I refused to play that damn thing,” he said. “It’s tiny and horrible and I don’t like them. Why play those when you have a lovely superb piano.”

“Well, Freddie didn’t like the electric piano, so I took it home and I started to learn on the electric piano and basically that’s the song that came out, you know, when I was learning to play piano. It was written on that instrument and it sounds best on that, you know, often on the instrument that you wrote the song on.”
