Headlong” is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was released as the third single from Queen’s 1991 album Innuendo and reached No 14 in the UK Singles Chart.
The song was written by Queen guitarist Brian May, who intended to record it for his then-upcoming solo album Back to the Light (1992), but when he heard Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury sing the track, he allowed it to become a Queen song. As with all the songs on Innuendo, the track was promptly credited to the entire band.
The line “And you’re rushin’ headlong” from the chorus is somewhat lifted from the second verse of “Breakthru“, a single from Queen’s previous album The Miracle, which contains the lyrics “I wanna rush headlong into this ecstasy”. [Wikipedia]
