"Headlong" is the third track of Queen's 1991 album Innuendo. Written by guitarist Brian May, but credited to Queen, it is one of the album's five singles. The song was initially going to be recorded by Brian May for his upcoming solo album, 1992's Back To The Light, but when he heard Freddie sing the track, he just couldn't help but let his band mates work on the song, thus becoming a Queen product. The song was the first single to be released in the United States under their contract with Hollywood Records on January 14th, 1991. Read more on Last.fm.
