Was It All Worth It (5:46)

Cover of The Miracle

From The Miracle and 6 other releases

“Was It All Worth It” was composed by Mercury. The song harks back to the band’s intricately-produced sound in the 1970s. Though the bulk of the song was masterminded by Mercury, all members contributed ideas and lyrics (for example - Taylor contributed the line “we love you madly!”). Deacon later cited the song as his favourite on the album. Taylor uses a gong and Timpani.

Brian May - October 1994, Guitarist Magazine:

“‘Was It All Worth It’ I really like. That’s me and Fred, but more him. For that track we did all sit around and try to come up with rhymes and stuff. Roger’s very good at that.”

    Overlooked gem. I just discovered this song through the Days of Our Lives documentary and it's my new favorite. The "orchestra" break down at 4:00 reminds me a bit of Hero from Flash Gordon.

    After 4:00 sounds really epic. Queen know how to capture the epicness.

    A tremendous amount of irony in this track. One of my favorites on this album.

    One of these guitar riffs that everyone knows, but no one knows from what song they are. It's one of the best guitar jobs in the history.
