In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited (3:47)

Cover of Queen 40

From Queen 40

Written by Freddie Mercury for Queen’s 1974 album Sheer Heart Attack, and is the album’s final track.

With its powerful chorus and arena-rock sound, “In the Lap of the Gods… Revisited” is, in many ways, the forerunner to “We Are the Champions”. The explosion heard at the end of the song was achieved through tape-saturation. Live, it was achieved with actual pyrotechnics, the first use of such effects by the band.
