Queen At 50 Reviews – Jazz – Part 2

Booklet cover spread for the Jazz album by Queen. The front cover is full of white concentric circles on a black background. The outermost circle is bright and bold, with thin circles radiating inwards. The centre of the cover has 10 thicker circles, and protruding from the smallest innermost circle is the word Jazz in pink letters. The back cover has a white background, with half of the front cover image on the left, mirrored and with the colours inverted, while on the right is the track listing in black text.

As always with Queen’s albums, Jazz is a mixture of famously popular hits and underrated lesser-known gems. The first side, which I reviewed in my previous post, is proof of that on its own, with Fat Bottomed Girls and Bicycle Race making a particularly big impact. But the second side is also a fantastic collection of songs, by far the most significant being Don’t Stop Me Now by Freddie of course, for which there is a great deal to write about. Plus we get both of the tracks that Roger contributed, 3 more compositions by Brian, and another song by John. So this is my in-depth review of Side 2, with the usual mix of alternate versions, live performances, covers and more. I hope you enjoy!

7. Dead On Time

Written by Brian May

See also: Ultimate Queen / Lyric Video

Frantic and intense, this isn’t just a banger of a track, it’s an explosion, with every band member on fire. Brian and Roger impressively showcase their speedy skills on the guitar and drums, with John solidly backing them up on the bass, while Freddie is practically rapping and nails a couple of top C♯5 belts. Brian gave a closer look at part of the guitar work for this song in his Star Licks video.

The song also makes a fleeting reference to the band’s first single, Keep Yourself Alive, with those particular words printed in capitals in the enclosed lyrics. And it’s also arguably the first time a special guest appears on a Queen track, given that the liner notes include the credit “Thunderbolt courtesy of God”. Brian had recorded the sound himself on a portable recorder during a heavy storm, and it was used to close the song.

As much as Queen loved – and were extremely good at – playing some of their songs hard and fast live on stage, the aggressive tempo and associated complexity of Dead On Time is presumably why it was never performed in concert. Which is a great shame, because it would have sounded awesome. There were brief allusions to it in some of Brian’s guitar solos in the Jazz and Works tours, but that was it.

Cover Versions

Just as Queen never performed it live, very few others have tried to tackle it either. But there are a few covers worth mentioning by:


8. In Only Seven Days

Written by John Deacon

See also: Ultimate Queen / Lyric Video

In complete contrast to the previous song, this beautiful little ballad about a fleeting holiday romance is the second of John’s two tracks on the album, and was released as the B-side to Don’t Stop Me Now. John also plays both acoustic and electric guitars on the song, forming part of the lovely instrumentation behind Freddie’s vocals. They never performed it live in concert though, sadly.

Cover Versions

As it’s another under-appreciated album track, there are only a few covers of this, including:


9. Dreamer’s Ball

Written by Brian May

See also: Ultimate Queen / Lyric Video

The tempo slows down further now, courtesy of this sweet bluesy number with a New Orleans vibe, about keeping a departed lover alive in one’s nightly visions. Brian wrote it as a tribute to Elvis Presley, who died aged 42 the year before Jazz was released – though it doesn’t explicitly mention him, so the listener can interpret it however they wish. It could be applied to a relationship that has broken up, or to someone who has passed away, for example.

The 2011 reissue of the album includes a really nice Early Acoustic Take from August 1978 as a bonus track. John Deacon is absent, and all of the guitars are acoustic, on this simplified and lovely work-in-progress iteration.

Live Performances

The song was also beautifully performed by the band in concert, with Freddie getting the audience to clap along, while Brian and Roger would imitate brass instruments with their mouths. Examples include:

Cover Versions

A few versions of this songs have been released on albums:

Meanwhile some other covers include:


10. Fun It

Written by Roger Taylor

See also: Ultimate Queen / Lyric Video

On this catchy, funky, disco style song, with an intro beat that sounds a bit like Another One Bites The Dust, Roger and Freddie share the vocals, while Roger also plays most of the instruments, including electronic Syndrum pads. It was released as the B-side of Jealousy in the US, Canada, Brazil and New Zealand.

Queen never played this song live. And it appears that almost nobody has covered it either, apart from the performances I’ve found by tribute band Killer Queen and Korean tribute group 0vueen.


11. Leaving Home Ain’t Easy

Written by Brian May

See also: Ultimate Queen / Lyric Video

Another change of pace with this beautiful ballad by Brian, about the mixed emotions in getting away and making a fresh start on one’s own. He sings all the lead and harmony vocals here, including the female bridge part, which was achieved by slowing the tape down during recording, and then playing it back at normal speed. This is yet another song that Queen sadly never performed live.

Cover Versions

Again there are barely any covers for this. The few I’ve found include:


12. Don’t Stop Me Nw

Written by Freddie Mercury

See also: Ultimate QueenWikipedia / Song Facts / Lyric Video

It’s rather hard to comprehend how it’s possible, but this fabulously catchy, fun and easy to sing-along with banger of a tune wasn’t a huge hit on its original release. In the UK the single entered the chart at number 44, and slowly climbed for 7 weeks until it eventually peaked at Number 9 in March 1979, where it was still firmly beaten by Gloria Gaynor singing I Will Survive, The Village People performing In The Navy & The Sex Pistols singing Friggin’ In The Riggin’, which made up the Top 3. Don’t Stop Me Now then immediately dropped out of the Top 10 again the following week.

So, while it did reasonably well during its 10 weeks in the Top 40, it didn’t make the same impact as some of their other popular hits. It was still much better than America though, to be fair, where it only managed to reach Number 86.

But over the years its popularity has skyrocketed, and it’s now regarded by many as the most uplifting song of all time. In fact, that was scientifically proven by cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Jacob Jolij in 2015, who showed that it has all the necessary elements to make it a success, given that it’s performed in a third major key, with a fast tempo of around 150 beats per minute, and has cheerful lyrics. He even wrote an equation that takes into account the tempo, musical scale and the number of different chords used:

Rating = 60 + (0.00165 * BPM – 120)^2 + (4.376 * Major) + 0.78 * nChords – (Major * nChords)

You don’t need complicated maths to state the obvious though. Just reading the figures on streaming services clearly illustrates its popularity today. At the time of publishing this post in March 2022, the song has over 753 million views on Youtube, and well over 1.2 billion streams on Spotify!

And it’s also topped various polls, including:

Brian & Roger Interviews

It’s no secret that Brian May has always felt a bit uneasy about this track, as it refers to Freddie’s over-indulgent lifestyle at the time, including lyrics about being a “sex machine” and “out of control”. As Guardian columnist Alexis Petridis pointed out in an article about Freddie, the song is “a direct product of his hedonism and promiscuity: an unrepentant, joyous, utterly irresistible paean to gay pleasure-seeking. You find yourself wondering if its title might not have been aimed at his censorious bandmates.”

Summarising their thoughts on the song, Brian and Roger have mentioned it several times in interviews:

  • Absolute Greatest Hits Commentary (2009):
    • Brian: “It was very much Freddie’s pop side, and I remember thinking I’m not quite sure if this is what we should be doing. I think there was also a feeling that it lyrically represented something that was happening to Freddie which we kind of thought was threatening him, and probably it was in a sense. But having said that, it’s full of joy and optimism and stuff.” And Roger observes:
    • Roger: “Yeah, I think it’s very joyous, and actually I still think he had his tongue slightly in his cheek. “I’m a rocket ship”, “I’m like an atom bomb” – they’re great lines.”
    • Brian: “Yeah, very witty as usual.”
    • Roger: “Mr Fahrenheit there, yeah, that’s a great line. You’ve gotta have your tongue in your cheek to say that, to call yourself that.”
  • Days Of Our Lives (2011):
    • Documentary – Brian remarks: “I’ve been quoted as saying that I don’t like the track. I kind of do like the track, but I had mixed feelings, because in a sense it represented a sort of separatism. It was very much Freddie’s world and reflecting what he was going through.” DJ Paul Gambaccini then talks about Freddie’s huge love of the New York gay scene, and there’s an old chat with Freddie where he shows how keen he is to have as much fun as possible.
    • Blu-ray Bonus Feature – Brian talks about how he recorded a heavy rhythm guitar track, as he felt the song needed it, and an extract of that ‘Long Lost Guitars’ version is played for comparison. But it didn’t really work, and Freddie wanted the song to be driven by the piano. He did very much like Brian’s guitar solo though, so they kept that in. We’re also treated to some rare footage from a live performance of the song, taken from the Concert For Kampuchea at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 26 December 1979.
  • Absolute Radio (2011):
    • Brian May Interview – “I thought it was a lot of fun but, yes, I did have an undercurrent feeling of “Oh, aren’t we talking about danger here?”. Because we were worried about Freddie at this point, and I think that feeling lingers. But it’s become almost the most successful Queen track, as regards to what people play in their car or play at their weddings or whatever. It’s become a massive, massive track. It’s a sort of anthem to people who want to just be hedonistic, and yeah, I have to say, kind of a stroke of genius from Freddie.”
  • Mojo Magazine:
    • Brian is quoted as saying after Freddie’s death that the song was from a period of time when Freddie was “taking lots of drugs and having sex with lots of men”, and so he has difficulty with the lyrics given that context.
    • Roger told Mojo in 2019 that: “Don’t Stop Me Now is the one that has surprised us all. It wasn’t a big song at the time. Freddie wrote it on the piano and Brian had to find a way to insert himself in there. I don’t necessarily think it’s one of our best songs but I love the sentiment, “Call me Mr Fahrenheit.” It’s hilarious and it’s become a sort of rallying cry.”

Music Videos

The music video was directed by J. Kliebenstein, and filmed at the Forest Nationalle, Brussels, Belgium on 26 January 1979. It was included on the Greatest Flix VHS and the Greatest Video Hits 1 DVD, as well as other video compilations by the band around the world. It simply features the band doing a mimed performance to the song, on a stage setup used for their tour.

As Brian and Roger explain in their DVD commentary, they had to stay closely bunched so the director could get shots of the whole band at once, and as such they weren’t able to energetically move around the stage like they would in a live show. So it’s not fully representative of a live Queen performance, and it’s nothing outstanding as music videos go. But Freddie looks cool and brings it to life of course, so it’s still good fun to watch, as the approximately 750 million views testifies!

40 years later, in 2019, Queen celebrated Bohemian Rhapsody becoming the first pre-1990s music video to reach a billion views on Youtube, with their You Are The Champions campaign. They invited fans around the world to record themselves dancing for Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Me Now and A Kind Of Magic, for some special collaborative music videos.

So for Don’t Stop Me Now they posted a dance tutorial and demonstrated the full routine, led by Polly Bennett, the movement choreographer for Rami Malek in the Bohemian Rhapsody movie. All the subsequent contributions – 10,000 in total, from 1,822 dancers in over 120 countries – were then whittled down and compiled into an entertaining fan music video.

Alternate Versions

  • Long Lost Guitars – Released as a bonus track on the 2011 remaster of the album, this is the version discussed in the Days Of Our Lives Blu-ray bonus feature mentioned above. Brian recorded an extensive guitar backing track during the original studio sessions, as he felt the song might need it, but it was ultimately rejected, and therefore remained hidden away on the multitrack tapes. So here we get to hear that mix for the first time, with a lot more guitar throughout the song, and a different solo too. It’s not better than the original necessarily, I can see why Freddie wanted the piano part to be prominent. But it’s still a pretty cool alternative version.
  • Revisited – This new mix was included on the 2018 Bohemian Rhapsody movie soundtrack. It features a brand new guitar part by Brian and a harder percussion sound from Roger, designed to more closely represent the band’s current sound in their shows with Adam Lambert. And Freddie’s vocal outro doesn’t fade out, giving the song a more definitive end. Again it doesn’t beat the original, but it’s still quite good.
  • Bohemian Rhapsody Credits Mix – This version, not included on the soundtrack album, uses the original studio mix, but with changes to the start and end. As the band leave the stage after Live Aid in slow motion, Freddie’s intro vocals are sung a cappella initially, with an echo effect added along with pauses between each line. Then the full mix kicks in, and text about Freddie appears on screen, as he sings “I’ll turn it inside out”. The music video for the song is then shown alongside the credits. At the end of the song, as with the Revisited mix, Freddie’s vocals come to a proper end rather than fading, again with an echo effect. The credits then continue, accompanied by The Show Must Go On.
  • Rock Band Mix – Made available as part of the Queen Extravaganza 02 download pack for this video game, this is the original studio version, but it ends with an abrupt piano chord. It also visually emphasises just how little guitar there is in the song, given the 77-bar countdown on screen, and then you can see just how complex the solo is to play.
  • Karaoke Version – This instrumental mix, with some backing vocals included, was released on Greatest Karaoke Hits. A piano note accompanies the opening clicks to help you start in the right key.

Isolated Tracks

In November 2011 fans were invited to remix the song as part of a Talenthouse competition. And to facilitate that, 9 instrumental stems were released for download, the only time Queen have ever officially released a multitrack set from any of their songs. Other multitracks people have shared online have mainly been extracted from the Rock Band video games.

The stems give a great insight into the composition of the song. Hearing the full instrumental without vocals gives a great sense of how all the backing components go together of course, and it works as a fabulous tune in its own right that way. But it’s great to be able to break everything down into its individual parts.

Freddie’s excellent piano track forms the heart of the song of course, with the powerful lead vocals and nicely constructed backing harmonies on top. And using the stems allow you to hear different combinations, such as all the vocals together, lead vocal with piano and all vocals with piano. The latter works pretty well as a complete song in its own right, a further testament to Freddie’s skills as a composer and performer.

But of course the other band members all add vital enhancements, that elevate the song further beyond its strong foundations. Brian’s guitar part may be shorter than he wanted, but he makes it count with a super solo. Roger’s drumming is solid and catchy, and in the multitracks it’s divided into its individual parts (snare drum, kit drum, kick drum, and an extra track for the bell and tambourine elements). And the often unfairly overlooked bass part by John has some interesting counterpoints to the main melody.

Live Performances

As it wasn’t deemed to be a big hit, the band only played the song live on the Jazz and Crazy tours in 1979. Brian plays guitar throughout, unlike his reduced involvement on the final studio version, and there’s an extended guitar and drum break in the middle of the song. But surprisingly it was never performed in America at all, even on the 1978 dates at the start of the Jazz tour. Only the intro was ever played in the US, during a gig in Chicago.

The few examples of performances by the original band therefore include:

In more recent years, however, with the song holding much higher status, it’s been an integral part of every Queen + Adam Lambert tour, with the audience eagerly joining in. So there are several videos of it being performed, including:

Adam also gave an exclusive performance of the track by himself, along with an interview, as part of Herbalife Nutrition’s Europe & Africa Extravaganza in Stockholm, Sweden in September 2020, during the pandemic when Queen were unable to tour.

We Will Rock You Musical

This song is performed by the Killer Queen character during the Queen musical, before Khashoggi alerts her to the escape of Galileo and Scaramouche. Killer Queen then launches into Another One Bites The Dust as she deals with Khashoggi’s failure.

On the original 2002 soundtrack album, Killer Queen only performs the intro of the song before Khashoggi interrupts her. However, this has changed over the years as the show has evolved. In the recent touring production that I attended in March 2022, Killer Queen performs the song in its entirety, with Khashoggi then singing the outro after the final chorus, before Killer Queen interrupts him instead.

Film Appearances

The 2004 British comedy horror film Shaun Of The Dead, written by and starring Simon Pegg, is largely responsible for the track’s huge resurgence in popularity among a new generation in the 21st century, as it played during a memorable zombie fight scene in a bar, that’s cleverly choreographed in time with the song. Another Queen song, You’re My Best Friend, plays during the closing credits of the film.

Some people even argue that it overshadows any other movie that tries to incorporate the track as a result – although an understandable exception can be made for the 2018 Bohemian Rhapsody biopic, that gave us alternate mixes of the song as discussed earlier, and thus further boosted its appeal.

Nevertheless, several other films have also used the track, including:

TV Appearances

Sport Relief

McFly’s cover of the song was the first single from their third album Motion In The Ocean in 2006. It was released as a double A-side with their own composition Please, Please and went straight to Number 1, making them the only group to chart higher with a Queen song than the original band. It spent 5 weeks in the Top 40 overall.

Some of the money from sales of the song went to Sport Relief 2006, and it was played in various BBC sport programmes, including the theme tune for the Sport Relief Mile that McFly took part in, and highlights from the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Drummer Harry Judd also went to India with various celebrities in aid of the charity, to visit some of the poorest areas and take part in some sports.

You can see the boyband performing the song in several ways:

Dramas

Queen’s recording of the song has also appeared in:

Comedies

UK

  • Fast & Loose:
    • David Armand – The comedian does a very funny mime to the lyrics during Series 1 Episode 6 in 2011, for guests Pippa Evans & Ruth Bratt to try and guess the song, as they’re prevented from hearing it.

  • Visa – From their 2013 Feel Faster, Flow Faster promo for contactless payments promo.

TV Talent Shows

The song has appeared on various song and dance programmes, which are a mixed bag as you’d expect, so I’ll let you judge who’s best.

UK

  • Britain’s Got Talent:
    • Ant & Dec – The presenters, lip syncing to a shortened version of the Queen track, lead a huge flash mob of performers to launch Series 7 in 2012.
    • Flakefleet Primary School – From the Series 13 auditions in 2019, this performance quickly becomes far more epic than anyone expects, resulting in lots of smiles and tears as it tugs at everyone’s emotions, and earns the brave and talented 4-11 year olds the first Golden Buzzer of that year’s series. At the timing of writing the video has over 28 million views, placing it higher than the 24 million for James Corden singing with Adam Lambert!
    • Nicholas Bryant, The Collaborative Orchestra & Singers – From the first week of the Series 10 auditions in 2016, where the judges and the crowd are surprised with a huge flash mob performance. It has over 27 million views at the time of writing, not far behind the primary school above!

Other Countries

Other Cover Versions

Apart from the TV & film-related covers mentioned already, there are a ton of other interpretations of the song out there.

Bands & Groups

Duets

Solo Male Singers

  • Matt Hancock – The Tory MP was filmed singing… well, shouting… along with the track during karaoke, after the Conservative Party Conference in 2018. And yet, astonishingly, it turned out not to be the most embarrassing, toe-curling, cringeworthy thing he would ever be filmed doing. So let’s try not to imagine him singing that he’s a “sex machine ready to reload”, and move swiftly on instead…
  • Thomas Cameron – The tenor teamed up with a host of musical friends to record this single in December 2021, in aid of Bristol Children’s Hospital. The track features Carol Decker, Liz Mitchell, Sarah Jane Morris, Mike Christie, Jennie Bellestar Matthias, Molly Hocking, Cindy Alter, Jamie Moses, Oliver Poole, Glen Matlock, Phil Gould, The Fizz, Aine Carroll, Sam Hiller, Professor Tim Wilson, Pat Fagan, Jarlaith Mervyn, Bonnie Faustina, The Rock Project Exeter (Polly, Lizzy & Bethany) and Bow Community Primary School.

Solo Female Singers

  • Katy Perry – Live at the 2009 Hurricane Festival in Germany. This was a regular part of her setlist that year, as you can also see performances from T In The Park, Hollywood Palladium & a private New York gig. She does it in her own style, and changes the melody quite significantly to suit her range, which doesn’t work for me personally but seems to appeal to some.

K-Pop Singers

The song appears to be very popular in South Korea, as there have been some catchy live performances by K-Pop artists, including:

Choirs & A Cappella Groups

Piano & Keyboard Instrumentals

  • Peter Bence released his own excellent arrangement as a single, which includes a snippet of Bohemian Rhapsody. The video has had over 10 million views and his arrangement has been copied by many of the pianists listed below.

Guitar Instrumentals

Orchestral Instrumentals

Strings Instrumentals

Wind Instrumentals

Electronic Music

Dancers

Lip Dubs

The feel-good nature of this song means it’s been a massively popular choice for lip dub videos, where groups of people lip sync to the track.

For a start, there are lots of videos that take place in a school, college or university, often giving us a tour of the campus, and some are impressively shot in a single take:

There are also loads of wedding Marryoke videos and a few birthday Partyoke clips, featuring family and friends all joining in:

Other videos of people lip syncing to the track include:

Parodies

Other Amusements

  • Gerry Phillips – An impressive hand-farting ‘manualist’ version. Yes, really!
  • Gonsero – A clever music video with Lego versions of the band members playing the song.
  • Jamie Cocker – A comedian doing interpretive sign language miming of the lyrics.

13. More Of That Jazz

Written by Roger Taylor

See also: Ultimate Queen / Lyric Video

The album could have ended with Don’t Stop Me Now quite easily, with Freddie singing about going off to party for the night. But we actually get one more track by Roger to finish with, on which he sings powerful lead vocals, reaching some impressive high notes (peaking with an E5). He provides a good drum beat too, and there’s a lot of nifty guitar and bass work throughout. So while it’s not one of the best songs on the album, it’s still pretty solid.

It also draws the album to a very suitable conclusion, as it ends with a rapid medley of clips from most of the other tracks, before Roger proclaims that there’s “no more, no more, no more of that Jazz”. Some people do find the random insertion of song extracts rather clunky though, so Youtuber Andy McH has made a Straight Forward Edit that skips the medley and goes right to the end, which works well too.

An edited Instrumental Version of the song was included on the Queen video game The eYe, which repeats selected sections of the song 6 times, and doesn’t include the closing medley.

Queen never performed the song live on stage, but tribute band Epic Queen have done so. That and an instrumental guitar and drum cover by Craig Farley are the only notable cover versions I can find.


Conclusion

And that’s it, another album completed. Queen’s final studio record of the 1970s is another enjoyable variety of songs, with the usual mix of smash hits and obscure gems, with all the band members making fantastic contributions to the writing and performances. And they would still have a lot of treats in store in the 1980s as well.

Check out my Queen & Covers playlists for this album, to explore the official videos, live performances, rarities, and other versions of the songs. I’ll update them, and this post, in the future as I become aware of new videos. And if there are others I should check out and consider adding to these or any of my Queen playlists, do let me know. And I’ll review the next album soon!
