Quote related to 'Seven Seas Of Rhye' from 'Queen II'

The whole world happens in the first twenty seconds, and you've almost heard the whole song in that time. Great big swooping things, then the vocal launches straight in… maybe that had something to do with it, and it was a good, catchy record, but we were hot at the time, and that obviously helped. The first version was just a little trailer, because the song wasn't actually finished then - the shape of things which might come, although it was very plain on the first album, with no vocals or orchestration.

Brian May; BBC Radio One, January 1983
