"The Invisible Man" is Taylor's first song on the album.
The lyrical idea came from a book he was reading after which the beat instantly came to his head.
May and Taylor commented (Queen for an Hour interview, 1989) that Taylor wrote part of the song in the bath (similarly to what happened with Mercury and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" ten years before).
The names of all four band members are "hidden" in the vocals: "Freddie Mercury" (said by Roger Taylor) right before the first verse begins, "John Deacon" after the first verse, "Brian May" (repeated twice) before his guitar solo, and "Roger Taylor" (with the initial "r" rolled by Mercury to sound like a drum roll) after the lyric "look at me, look at me".
Taylor "answers" with a drum fill.
The demo version features a completely different middle-eight with Mercury singing alternate lyrics in the style of Elvis Presley.
The whispered parts of the chorus are sung by Taylor.
