- Let Me Live allegedly dates back as far back as 1976, from Rod Stewart visiting Queen’s studio during the recording of A Day at the Races. It was recorded properly in 1983 with Rod Stewart and Jeff Beck — though neither of them ended up on the final version.
- It’s A Beautiful Day comes from a recording of Freddie messing around on piano and singing all the way back in 1980, which can be heard here.
- Made in Heaven and I Was Born To Love You come from Freddie’s first solo album Mr. Bad Guy in 1985.
- Heaven for Everyone originated in 1988, on The Cross’ first album Shove It. Freddie sang lead vocals on the track, which were re-used for Queen’s version.
- Too Much Love Will Kill You and My Life Has Been Saved were done as demos for The Miracle, and rejected from inclusion to the finished album.
- A Winter’s Tale and Mother Love were the last songs Freddie ever recorded, in 1991.
- You Don’t Fool Me was constructed from bits and pieces of songs Freddie had recorded that were never finished.
