A Kind of Magic was their biggest album yet in England, where it reached number one, remained on the charts for 63 weeks, and spawned several hit singles - the epic title track, the tuneful pop/rocker "Friends Will Be Friends," and one of their most haunting ballads, "Who Wants to Live Forever" (also included was the Live Aid-inspired hit anthem. It may not have been as cohesive as some of their other albums, but A Kind of Magic was their best work in some time. Queen would embark on a sold-out tour of outdoor stadiums in Europe upon the album's release, which would sadly turn out to be their final tour.

Magic, it's a kind of magic It's a kind of magic Magic, magic, magic, magic Magic, ha-ha-ha-ha, it's magic Ha-ha Yeah, yeah Whoo It's a kind of magic. About A Kind of Magic. The music video was Filmed in the disused Playhouse Theatre in London’s Northumberland Avenue at Charing Cross, the video was Queen’s first to include animation since Save Me, with computer graphics bringing the characters from the cover of the new album to dazzling life as, among other things, the band’s backing singers. The theatre was once used by the BBC to record programming for radio, and this was the inspiration for the video itself – Freddie is the magician who returns to the abandoned theatre where he was once a star and turns three down-and-out squatters (Brian, Roger and John) into.
