Ride the Wild Wind (4:41)

Cover of Innuendo

From Innuendo and 7 other releases

“Ride The Wild Wind” is a song by Queen from their acclaimed fourteenth album Innuendo.

“Ride The Wild Wind” was composed by Roger Taylor and is featured on Queen’s 1991 album Innuendo. Taylor initially recorded a demo with his own vocals to present to the band, and the final version that would appear on the album would be a duet between Taylor and Freddie Mercury.

The song is a sort of sequel of Roger’s “A Night at the Opera” composition, “I’m in Love With My Car”, with both focusing on Taylor’s passion for cars and racing. On the Innuendo track, the song involves all members of the band to give life to a fast song with beating drums and rhythmic bass line, all of which create the sensation of speed and a car-engine’s roar.

The middle of the song features a solo by guitarist Brian May, which accentuates the sense of high velocity, and also gives the song a heavier sound.

    Killer bass line. Innuendo was one of the best Queen albums and the best album after the 70s era, in my opinion. Freddie just gives it his all. :)
