About A Kind of Magic. Queen’s twelfth studio album compiles six songs the band made for Highlander (including the title track), serving as the movie’s unofficial soundtrack, along with three other tracks ( Pain Is So Close to Pleasure, Friends Will Be Friends and One Vision – the last came from another movie, Iron Eagle). The accompanying Magic Tour went on to be Queen’s last with frontman Freddie Mercury, due to his ever worsening health state due to the contraction of HIV. A Kind of Magic Q&A.

A Kind of Magic is the twelfth album by English rock band Queen, released in 1986. It was their first studio album to be recorded digitally, and is based on the soundtrack to the film Highlander

The album A Kind of Magic is Queen's twelfth studio album but the first to include a title track. This was a big song on Queen's 1986 Magic tour, which was their last with the original members, since Freddie Mercury would be diagnosed with AIDS the following year and was too sick to tour after that. Queen was an absolute genius! It certainly was 'A Kind Of Magic'. Niles from Belpre, Oha really great song The Blue Angels used it as their opening of one of their documentary films it fits perfectly. Matt from All Over The Shop, -there's a whole bunch of queen songs i never realised were by the same group let alone queen (my folks only had greatest hits 1 so i thought that's all they'd done)

Lyrics to "A Kind Of Magic" song by Queen: It's a kind of magic. It's a kind of magic. Taylor's version is at the end of the film "Highlander" (1986); Mercury's version is on the album. In the "Highlander" film, Connor MacLeod answers to Rachel, "Hey, it's a kind of magic," when she asked him how he'd survived a gun shot. The phrase "a kind of magic" inspired Roger Taylor to write this song. Other references to the film in these lyrics are "one prize, one goal" and "no mortal man". The single's cover art is an image of Clancy Brown as the "Highlander" film's villain, The Kurgan

Notes

Blue monochromatic sleeve. Not gatefold. Release date not clear. Certainly released before Seoul Olympics of 1988 or a couple of years later since at those times rock music was banned in South Korea and considered dangerous for the Korean youth and the Korean society in general. Only few selected records of rock/western artists were not vetoed by the Ministry of Education and Culture which allowed their publication sometimes with censored covers or edited track listings (see Iron Maiden "Piece of Mind" album).
