Info about song

"Long Away" is the third track on the first side of Queen's 1976 album A Day at the Races, and found limited release as a single in certain countries. Guitarist Brian May wrote the song and sings lead vocals. It is one of the few songs where May uses a guitar other than his Red Special; for the rhythm guitar parts he used an electric Burns twelve string guitar (although he used the Red Special for the second guitar solo in the middle section of the track). The song has a sad tone, describing that "for every star in heaven / there's a sad soul here today", and an overall sense of melancholic nostalgia lies over the song. It is similar in feel to the song '39 from A Night at the Opera, although without the folk influence. Roger Taylor sings the highest parts of the song. and can clearly be heard singing "Look for the day" at the end of the chorus. Freddie Mercury did not participate in recording the track.
