One Vision (12 inch) - Queen

"One Vision" was first released as a single in 1985 and then included on Queens 1986 album A Kind of Magic. Originally written by Roger Taylor about Martin Luther King, Jr., including lyrical references to King’s "I Have A Dream" speech. This song was one of the few songs from A Kind Of Magic that was not featured in the movie Highlander.
Queen were inspired to write and record this song because of the euphoric feeling that came from their performance at Live Aid. The song was included in all Queen's live concert performances of the 1986 Magic Tour, as the very first song of each concert. They claimed they chose "One Vision" as the introduction song because its intro made a perfect concert introduction.
