A shot of vodka and a single take.
That’s one of the rurmors surrounding the twelfth and final song of Innuendo, Freddie Mercury’s last fully recorded album.
The last song of a man dying of HIV/AIDS, The Show Must Go On is a monumnent to his spirit. Despite the wasting and weakening of his body to the disease, that at the time had minimal treatment options, he powered through and recorded as much as he could (an hour or two a day at best,) before he was too weak to continue.
Considering that he supposedly did this in one take after a shot of vodka, and that he was a dying by inches, I don’t have the heart to tighten the fade at the end of this song, ending it sooner. I feel like I would be stomping on his ashes to do so, as one of my favorite artists when I was younger. On my audio equipment I can still hear them singing all the way to the end. I would rather put a mustache and glasses on the Mona Lisa than to take anything away from this song.
So the song is presented in its entirety, as cut on the original album. Enjoy!
Thanks to Trolov, Helen Carnate, and Kival Evan for playtesting this!
