SOMEBODY TO LOVE

 

Kenny Everett: So, if youre planning to but this LP you get that thrown in as an added goodie. The new number one single in Britain today Somebody To Love. Well-done Freddie.

 

Freddie Mercury: Theyve probably all got their copies by now anyway, so we might as well play something else.

 

Kenny Everett: Yeah, but the thing is we all had Sailing by Rod Stewart and everyone bought it. Then they re-released it and everyone bought it again. Very strange.

 

Freddie Mercury: Yes, go out and but it again, Im not complaining. [Laughs]

 

Kenny Everett: Lets play a little track off Sheer Heart Attack now, because I thought this was one of your tunes, because its so wilting.

 

Freddie Mercury: I thought youd made a slight mistake earlier on, but this is a track called Dear Friends. Taken from our Sheer Heart Attack album, its written by Brian. Ive done the vocals on it, but Brian wrote this lovely tune.

 

Kenny Everett: Well lets hear this one.

 

DEAR FRIENDS

 

Kenny Everett: Very pretty. I didnt know Brian May wrote that, I thought he was the hairy department.

 

Freddie Mercury: Yes he does those, hes very versatile.

 

Kenny Everett: Ok, this next one is one of yours isnt it?

 

Freddie Mercury: Yes, its called Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy, and its in my ragtime mood that I get a chance to, [Laughs] to do on every album and this time, this is something Ive come up with this time around.

 

Kenny Everett: Right, a little frilly number from the pen of Fred.

 

GOOD OLD-FASHIONED LOVER BOY

 

Kenny Everett: Right, that was one of Freddies tunes. I hear youre not too pleased with the musical press, Freddie [Laughs] Lets be outrageous!

 

Freddie Mercury: It depends, I dont take much notice to be honest. They can say what they like.

 

Kenny Everett: I find that they slag everything available, they just dont say anything nice about anybody.
