US Hollywood Records CD Bonus Tracks:
Flash's Theme (1991 Remix) (May) (6:43)

Queen's first soundtrack album. Only two songs, "Flash's Theme" and "The Hero", have lyrics as such. The rest is mostly instrumental, with dialogue and effects from the film dubbed over it. But its very atmospheric, and its nice to hear a few instrumentals for once. Particularly recommended for Brian fans, as it features "The Wedding March" played on the Red Special. And there's some good percussion tracks for Roger as well. And surely "The Hero" should have been released as a single!


Flash's Theme
Most countries. A-side is a remix. Standard B-side is "Football Fight". A 12" mono/stereo promo from the US also exists, in company ps. Second US promo 12", with unique mix, rumoured but unconfirmed.
