In 1996, Queen Productions, feeling that You Don't Fool Me had the most potential to be a hit in clubs worldwide, commissioned a variety of remixes by a handful of different producers to be administered to the song. Apart from the standard album version, a further fifteen remixes (including two edits) were made. Most are standard remix fare, and are heavily reminiscent of the 1991 Hollywood Records remixes or those found on The Freddie Mercury Album, though a few are fairly decent while a few are downright horrendous.
