Bohemian Rhapsody was released more than 40 years ago. And it is still to this day, one of the most-well known songs, if not the best song ever written and played by a rock band. The single was released in 1975 originally, and become the No.1 selling single in the UK when it was released.

Bohemian was the first song ever to get to Number one in UK twice with the same version. Once when it was originally released, and again after the death of Freddie Mercury. It is also the only single to have been Christmas number one twice with the same version.

In 2000, Bohemian came in second t John Lennon’s Imagine in a Channel 4 television poll of the 100 Best Number Ones. In 2002, it was named the top British single of all time by the Guinness Book of Records.

If you’ve watched the recently released movie Bohemian Rhapsody, there is a huge section on how was the song made. But this documentary explains it fully the birth of the mega selling Queen single.

Featuring drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May, the documentary also gives insight look from studio engineer Justin Shirley Smith. They discuss the making and history of the single. As May says, “We were able to take things further than the Beatles because we had better technology and the benefit of their experience”.
