Ten years ago, in an effort to do something about the rise of HIV/AIDS in Africa, Nelson Mandela recruited the members of Queen to help organise a massive international campaign to raise money and awareness. The result was 46664, an ongoing campaign named after his old prison number. This is the song that Roger wrote for that campaign back in 2003.



It tells the story of somebody receiving the news that they're HIV+, but it says a whole lot else besides. Perhaps my brain is a little too Queen-obsessed, but I can't help but hear this song in my head tonight.
