Queen + Paul Rodgers talks
"'Voodoo' was a song I had already when I came into the studio. We really just jammed on it, I picked up an acoustic guitar and played it, then Roger came in on the drums, Brian then joined in, and we played through it. We recorded the second or third take. It ended up being quite a sparse song with not much instrumentation on it, and, dare I say it, very bluesy, very loose. We didn't know what we were going to do or sound like, so we were just playing to see what came up. Some of the songs on the album are different; some are very natural and organic, like 'Voodoo', but there are others that are beautifully produced, too, 'All The Glitters' [sic: Some Things That Glitter], for example."
"Some songs are carefully produced, while some are just a result of a current inspiration. For example, the song 'Voodoo' represents a real jazz session. I began playing the guitar and everybody joined. I think that we have managed to retain a positive atmosphere on that album."
