    the original version is great IMO! not one of Queen's best songs, but it's just so simple...it's impossible not to like it!

    my favourite song they did for that movie (highlander) is Princes Of The Universe...along with Innuendo are my 2 favourite tracks from Queen

    Def one of their best. Far better than the film it came from, too (though i like it).

    I don't know this song. #24 in the UK in 1986.

    Epic song, one of their best IMO. In Germany, it became a much bigger hit when covered by Dune in 1996. That remake peaked at number 2, whereas the original version only reached number 52.

    I've never listened to a bad cover of this song, which says a lot about the melody and the writing
