One of the highlights Dr Sardonicus
Queen songs are almost always fun to play. Even if the charts are lackluster, you usually just end up enjoying the Queen part of it. Luckily, this song succeeds on both parts. This is probably in my top 5 songs in the game.

So after the piano solo, you start playing a string part that I assume is a cello, until you hit a section similar to the end of Psycho Killer where you constantly hammer-on from blue to a BO chord, faster and faster until it's almost impossible to keep a combo going. After this, the song proper starts, with a riff that shows up throughout the song, charted as O-OhoBhoR. You'll see this a lot.

Soon afterwards, the first solo starts. It's filled with all the stuff that make a Queen solo great: hammer-ons, sustains, and pure melody. It's simply a joy to play, and one of the best solos in-game. The verse starts up afterwards, and although you skip the first line, you start playing a chord pattern that's punchy enough to be fun. After this is the verse, filled with sustains and lots of movement. Both parts are great fun. Then the 2nd chorus comes in, and it's filled with chord sustains. The song is just filled with variety.

After this chorus, you hit the 2nd solo, which is even better than the first. It's just filled with hammer-ons, and it plays fantastically. After this solo, you hit the 2nd verse, the 2nd chorus, and the song ends. Overall, the song is glorious to play. At less than 4 minutes, the song is jam-packed with variety, and each section is fun. A definite highlight of the game.
