Queen: The Story of Bohemian Rhapsody

  • Published 1 week ago

One of the greatest songs ever written is Bohemian Rhapsody. And that is a fact. The single is now the third best-selling single of all time in the United Kingdom. Bohemian Rhapsody topped the Singles chart in 1975, staying there for nine weeks. And then in 1991 after the death of Freddie Mercury.

The song is unusual in so many ways. For starters, the song has no chorus, and consists of several sections: introduction, ballad, guitar solo, opera, hard rock section, and finale. At the time, this format was unusual to rock music. And while Queen used that same style in “The March of the Black Queen” and “My Fairy King”, it was Bohemian Rhapsody that popularized it.

When the song was made, it was the most expensive single ever made. It still remains one of the most elaborate recordings in the history of music.

Freddie Mercury wrote the song at his home, and at the time, the band thought of the song as “intriguing and original”. There is so much history behind the song, including Mercury’s stamp on it. Freddie refused to explain the composition. All he has said is that the song is about relationship. More than 40 years after recording the song, the band is still protective of the secret. Learn some about the song in the extremely educational documentary about Bohemian Rhapsody.
