"No-One But You (Only the Good Die Young)" is a song recorded by the remaining three members of the British rock band Queen in 1997 following the death of the lead singer Freddie Mercury in 1991.
Guitarist Brian May – the writer of the song – and drummer Roger Taylor share lead vocals.
The song was released on the album Queen Rocks and it was also released as a double a-side single with "Tie Your Mother Down".
The impetus for the song came after the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in August 1997, but is largely a eulogy to Freddie Mercury.
It was dedicated to Mercury and all those that die too soon.
It was originally written for a potential Brian May solo project, which eventually evolved into the album Another World.
He sent the demo of the song to Roger Taylor, who according to Taylor himself, put it in a drawer and forgot about it.
After eventually hearing it, Taylor suggested that it could be turned into a Queen song.
Roger Taylor's contribution was to change the tempo and make the lyrics less specific to Mercury.
The song features only the remaining three members of Queen, the final new recording to be released under the Queen name alone.
This is also the last new recording to feature John Deacon, who subsequently retired from public life.
This is the last original Queen release until the 2014 release Queen Forever.
