    This one I really like, but I think the remix fits the song a bit less than the original version somehow. Thanks for these Freddie posts Paul!

    Great, DJ Paul!
    Hoping to have also the re-rip of the original 12″ version of “Living on my own”.

    In fact in the “Lover of life, Singer of songs”
    Freddy Mercury collector’s edition 2cd (2006),
    there wasn’t the original mix but only the 1993 version and
    that collection misses also the “Love kills” original 12″.

    THANKS THANKS THANKS.

    …and I can only repeat myself, so 80s! Where a great song gets and excellent performance in a 80s fat sounding production and everything seem to be just right in the extended mix, 7 minutes and never a dull moment!
