Quote related to 'Headlong' from 'Innuendo'

Some evolved together. In the end, one of us took each song under our wing. Headlong came from me, at our studio in Montreux, a home recording studio for us that's very state-of-the-art, lovely for creating. The ideas came in a couple of days. At first I thought about it as a song for my solo album but, as always, the band is the best vehicle. As soon as I heard Freddie sing it, I said, “That's it!” Sometimes it's painful to give the baby away, but what you gain is much more. It became a Queen song.

Brian May; Rip, July 1991
