About Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)

"Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)" (手をとりあって, Te o Toriatte) is a song by Queen from their 1976 album A Day at the Races. Written by guitarist Brian May, it is the closing track on the album. The song is notable for having two choruses sung entirely in Japanese, and it was released as a single exclusively in Japan, reaching #49 on the charts. (The B-side was "Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy".) This song features a plastic piano and harmonium, both of which are played by May. They brought in a local choir to sing the chorus at the end. On the album, the song is concluded by a one-minute instrumental intro featuring a Shepard tone melody, which is actually a reprise of the beginning of "Tie Your Mother Down": this was intended to create a "circle" in the album, typical, for example, of Pink Floyd's albums.
