Album Song of the Day (4.2.)

Singles As an extension of the new series B-side of the day there’s now also “treasures” on Queen albums that are only available on the album and not on singles/maxis. For the 18th anniversary of the release of the Innuendo album, it’s “Don’t Try So Hard” today, a beautiful ballad mainly written by Freddie – apparently one of Brian May’s personal favorites among all Queen songs.

Needless to say that the album reached number 1 on many charts and achieved several platinum statuses – the last Queen album in Freddie’s lifetime who died in late 1991, and curiously it ends with the song “The Show Must Go On”
