"Now I'm Here" is a song by the English rock band Queen. The sixth song on their third album, Sheer Heart Attack, it was written by the lead guitarist, Brian May, while he was in hospital with hepatitis. The song is noted for its hard riff and vocal harmonies. In the UK, the song reached #11 on the charts when released as a single in 1975.[2] The song was a live favourite, performed at virtually every concert from late 1974 to 1986.[3]

It appeared on the 1981 compilation album Greatest Hits, and the 1997 compilation album Queen Rocks.[4] In March 2005, Q magazine placed "Now I'm Here" at number 33 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.[5]
