The soundtrack

The CD of the soundtrack (by Queen! -- jump to their web page; it's cool) is incredible. I bought it in December 1995 and cannot stop listening to it. It includes such gems as Flash's Theme ("Flash! Ah ahhhhh"), the wedding march, the football fight and lots of dialogue from the movie (see below for complete track listing). The CD also has a bonus track of a re-mixed Flash's Theme (good if you like that kind of stuff). Costs around $15 at most music stores. I found it used and consider myself lucky. Buy it.

John Deacon (bass guitar, guitar, synth) Roger Taylor (drums, vocals, synth)

The lyrics to two songs

"Flash" (May)
 
Flash a-ah
Savior of the Universe
Flash
He save everyone of us
Flash
He's a miracle
Flash
King of the impossible

He's for everyone of us
Stand for everyone of us
He save with a mighty hand
Every man every woman
Every child-he's a mighty
Flash

Just a man
With a man's courage
Nothing but a man
But he can never fail
No-one but the pure at heart
May find the Golden Grail
.................ah................


SONG: "The Hero" (May)
 
So you feel like you ain't nobody
Always needed to be somebody
Put your feet on the ground
Put your hand on your heart,
Lift your head to the stars
And the World's for your taking
(all you have to do
is save the world)

So you feel like it's the end of the story
Find it all pretty satisfactory
Well I tell you my friend
This might seem like the end
But the continuation is
Yours for the making.........
