Facts: A Kind Of Magic

Gimme The Prize

general: John and Freddie hated this song. <true>

Brian (1986): "I made a song called Gimme The Prize, which Freddie and John hate."

 

One Vision

recording: Brian played keyboards. <true>

Brian (2003): "We began using synthesisers and there were many excursions from us all into keyboard territory. My main contributions on principal parts were (in no particular order) in Scandal, Was It All Worth it, Hang On In There, Too Much Love will Kill You (which was done with Frank Musker up in his house in the Canyon in L.A. when we first sketched the song), No-One But You (again done on my own, originally for use on my solo album), One Vision (my first ramblings on a Kurzweil gave rise to the opening section), I Can't Live With You, The Show Must Go On (that sequence just got thrust into my head playing around with Roger - I will never know where it came from, but it completely took me over for a long time while the song was in development). And of course Who Wants to Live Forever."

writting: Roger wrote the lyrics. <true>

Roger (2003): "It was basically my lyric. It was a good collaboration that song."
