27 August 2012 – ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ voted 2nd Greatest Ever Rock Song by listeners to Planet Rock, being second to ‘Stairway To Heaven’ by Led Zeppelin.

“A lot of people slammed Bohemian Rhapsody, but who can you compare it to? Name one group who have done an operatic single. I can’t think of anybody. But we didn’t do an operatic single because we thought we’d be the only group to do it, it just happened.

Rhapsody was of an era, it was of its time. The time was right for that track then. To be honest, if we released it today, I don’t think it would be such a big hit. I’m not being modest; the feeling was right then for that kind of majestic recording. I just think that if it wasn’t written, and I was sitting here today, I wouldn’t write it now because of my awareness of what’s going on at the moment.”

Freddie Mercury

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is an epic, unforgettable masterpiece. It hit the #1 slot in the UK not once, but twice, and during Christmas time (1975 and 1991)!

The brilliant mind of Freddie! Legend 👑
