The Hitman (4:56)

Cover of Innuendo

From Innuendo and 8 other releases

The fly-away rocker “Hitman” was written by Mercury as well. The original version was apparently on keyboards and in a different key. May took Mercury’s riff (not un-common), changed the key and recorded a demo of the heavy version. Deacon then re-arranged the structure and they all filled the gaps in lyrics and recorded it. All of the backing vocals were done by May.
