"Gimme The Prize" as written by and Brian Harold May....
"...Garage and water from the sprinklers
It also left a man's decapitated body lying on the floor next to his own severed head,
A head which at this time has no name"

"I know his name"

Here I am I'm the master of your destiny
I am the one the only one I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize
Give me your kings let me squeeze then in my hands
Your puny princes
Your so called leaders of your land
I'll eat them whole before I'm done
The battle's fought and the game is won
I am the one the only one
I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize

"Now you die"

"I have something to say,
It's better to burn out than to fade away...
There can be only one"

Move over I said move over
Hey hey hey clear the way
There's no escape from my authority - Didn't I tell you
I am the one the only one I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize
I am the one the only one
I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize

"There can be only one."

    General Commentthis is obviously an original song for a movie.

    The Kurgan kicks ass

    especially when he sez that one thing from Neil Young

    its better to burn out than to fade away!

    General CommentThe guitar solo resembles a pipebag, doesn't it?

    I mean, beang this song from a movie about a scottish legendary fighter it seems pretty reasonable the connection.

    General CommentRoger singin this wud have been interestin yes, but i think we have to leave the stronger tracks for freddie tho, heaviest queen song ever. It is almost exactly the same as princes of the universe tho, which was written by freddie and gimme the prize was by brian, so if some copying was done......... lol

    General CommentAh! Kurgan's theme! I love this song and i LOVE the kurgan, especially when he's "in disguise". All the songs on this movie (except New York, which was a cover, and i think maybe one other song that was never released in an album) were written for the movie Highlander. It's an awesome movie and anyone who hasn't seen it definitely should. But don't watch the sequel, its crap. The book's good too.

    General CommentI've never seen "the Kurgan" or "Highlander" (possibly coz I'm from Australia and a little out of touch), but I LOVE this song! Does anyone know who does the voice that says "I am the only one!"?
