Don't Lose Your Head (4:38)

Cover of A Kind Of Magic

From A Kind Of Magic and 5 other releases

“Don’t Lose Your Head” was composed by Taylor and features Joan Armatrading in a vocal cameo. The song takes its name from a line spoken in Highlander, and is played for a short time when Kurgan kidnaps Brenda. The song then segues into a cover of “Theme from New York, New York”, though it is only a small clip. An instrumental version of the track entitled “A Dozen Red Roses for My Darling” features as the ‘B’ side to “A Kind of Magic”. This disco experimental track was a joke to not lose your head in battle, in co ordinance with the Highlander movie.

Freddie Mercury - lead vocals, keyboards (?)
Roger Taylor - lead vocals, drums, drum machine / programming, keyboards (?)
John Deacon - bass guitar, rhythm guitar
