Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody Video Wiki

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was written by Freddie Mercury for the band's 1975 album A Night at the Opera. It is a six-minute suite, consisting of several sections without a chorus: an intro, a ballad segment, an operatic passage, a hard rock part and a reflective coda. The song is a more accessible take on the 1970s progressive rock genre.Upon its release as a single, "Bohemian Rhapsody" became a commercial success, topping the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks and selling more than a million copies by the end of January 1976. It reached number one again in 1991 for another five weeks when the same version was re-released following Mercury's death, eventually becoming the UK's third-best-selling single of all time. It is also the only song to be the UK Christmas number one twice by the same artist. It topped the charts in several other markets as well, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and The Netherlands, later becoming one of the best-selling singles of all time selling over six million copies worldwide. In the United States, the song originally peaked at number nine in 1976, but returned to the chart in 1992 after being used in the film Wayne's World and reached a new peak of number two on the Billboard Hot 100. The release of the film of the same name in 2018 resulted in renewed popularity and chart success worldwide for the song. Although critical reaction was initially mixed, "Bohemian Rhapsody" became Queen's most popular song and is considered one of the greatest rock songs. The single was accompanied by a promotional video, which scholars consider ground-breaking. Rolling Stone stated that its influence "cannot be overstated, practically inventing the music video seven years before MTV went on the air." The Guardian ranked the music video for "Bohemian Rhapsody" number 31 on their list of the 50 key events in rock music history, adding it ensured "videos would henceforth be a mandatory tool in the marketing of music".In 2004, "Bohemian Rhapsody" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Appearing in various polls as being one of the greatest songs in popular music, in 2012, the song topped the list on an ITV nationwide poll in the UK to find "The Nation's Favourite Number One" over 60 years of music, while Mercury's vocal performance was chosen as the greatest in rock history by readers of Rolling Stone. In December 2018, "Bohemian Rhapsody" became the most-streamed song from the 20th century, and the most-streamed of all classic rock songs. The number of downloads of the song and original video has exceeded 1.6 billion downloads across global on-demand streaming services..

    In my days as a teen when this song came out in 1975, it was considered Rock Opera or Album Rock. Today they call it Classic and I still call it Rock Opera. Queen at this time was peaking and they peaked again in 1977, and again in 1980, and so on...! No one will ever replace Freddie Mercury with his vocals and Brian May and the rest of Queen. They were in sync from start to finish. I just saw the movie and I was satisfied for what they did. 5 Oscars awards proved it No one can replace Freddie. No one will ever come close. Not even Adam Lambert. He could not hold a tune, not even with Kiss. Besides, lets remember Freddie and Queen for the way they were, how they united the masses with their music and concerts. Bohemian Rhapsody was their true Iconic Signature of Rock Opera at their finest.

    I don’t know about the classification (pop). But this is amazing! How could anyone not like this? This is classic. Just because it isn’t the mainstream auto tuned crap doesn’t mean it ain’t good. Don’t even with me right now. This music is for everyone, generation doesn’t matter. You can be 14 (like me) and enjoy this! Honestly...
