  1. Staying Power

    "Staying Power" is the first track on the first side of Queen's 1982 album Hot Space. It was written by lead singer Freddie Mercury and is notable as being the only Queen song to have a horn section which was arranged by Arif Mardin. The song is driven by a funk-styled synth-bass riff beginning in D minor and modulating to E minor throughout the song. John Deacon does not play bass on this song—instead playing rhythm guitar on a Fender Telecaster. Roger Taylor programmed a drum machine for the track. Brian May of course is on his Red Special. In a Stylus Magazine review of the album critic Anthony Miccio described the song's style as: "an electro-disco track with frenetic horns." The song was released as a single in Japan and the US only.
