Facts: The Miracle

Breakthru

writting: Written by Freddie and Roger. <true>

Freddie (1989): "The track Breakthrou stemmed from Roger, really, it is basically Roger's track. There's sort an a capella vocal bit in the front, which, like we said, we had thirty tracks, that was a little piece of mine that I thought it was nice. It's kind of another song."

 

Hang On In There

writting: Brian wrote it. <false>

David Richards (2001): "It's Freddie's."

recording: Brian played synthesisers. <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."

 

My Baby Does Me

writting: Written by Freddie & John. <true>

Freddie (1989): "That's song stemmed from John and myself, and I'm Freddie by the way... it was just something ... I seem to remember I wanted something a little more relaxed than the way the other songs were getting. I felt that we didn't have something that was a little more clear headed, and not too involved. And so we decided we should have something very easy, very listen able."

Brian (1989): "You have to look at that side of the table (Freddie and John) to know about that."

David Richards (2001): "Collaborations with Freddie & John. John beat time and Freddie wrote the lyrics and melody."

 

Scandal

writting: Written by Brian. <true>

In 1989 Brian and Roger were asked about the song. Roger turned to Brian and said "I think this is yours". David Richards also credited it to Brian.

 

The Invisible Man

writting: Written by Roger. <true>

In 1989 Roger said it was originally his idea. In an interview to all the band they were asked who was responsible for this one and both Brian and Freddie said "Roger". In 2003 Brian and Roger also said it's Roger's.

 

The Miracle

writting: Freddie wrote it. <true>

Confirmed several times by Brian and David Richards.

 

Was It All Worth It

writting: Brian wrote it. <false>

Brian himself said in 1994 that it's Freddie's. David Richards said that too in 2001, and in 2002 he said that The Miracle, Innuendo and this one are Freddie's.
