5. "Who Wants to Live Forever"
Being a Highlander isn't always easy. The immortal beings are able to love us mortals, but then they have to watch us grow old and die while they remain unchanged. Brian May tapped into this unusual source of agony when he wrote "Who Wants to Live Forever" for the soundtrack to the first Highlander movie. He sings the first verse, while Freddie takes over for the rests of the song. The group was joined by an orchestra for the recording.
