When interviewed for Mojo magazine the band said the most amazing sight at Live Aid was to see the audience clapping to „Radio Ga Ga”. Brian May stated: „I’d never seen anything like that in my life and it wasn’t calculated either. We understood our audience and played to them but that was one of those weird accidents because of the (music) video. I remember thinking ‘oh great, they’ve picked it up’ and then I thought ‘this is not a Queen audience’. This is a general audience who’ve bought tickets before they even knew we were on the bill. And they all did it. How did they know? Nobody told them to do it.”
The band, now revitalised by the response to Live Aid – a „shot in the arm” Roger Taylor called it, and the ensuing increase in record sales, ended 1985 by releasing the single „One Vision”, which was the third time after „Stone Cold Crazy” and „Under Pressure” that all four bandmembers received a writing credit for the one song. Also, a limited-edition boxed set containing all Queen albums to date was released under the title of The Complete Works. The package included previously unreleased material, most notably Queen’s non-album single of Christmas 1984, titled „Thank God It’s Christmas”.
