“Bohemian Rhapsody” is an old school classic written by the British rock band, Queen. It was written by Freddie Mercury for the band’s 1975 studio album ‘A Night at the Opera’. This six-minute hit was the most expensive single ever made at the time of its release.
The reaction was initially mixed due to the different interpretations of the song – some think it is about murder, while others think it is about Freddie Mercury’s battle with AIDS. Nonetheless, “Bohemian Rhapsody” remains one of Queen’s most popular songs and is frequently placed on modern lists of the greatest songs of all time. In 2004, “Bohemian Rhapsody” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 2012, the song topped the list on a nationwide poll in the UK to find “The Nation’s Favourite Number One” over 60 years of music.
This song is definitely different from modern pop songs but as the saying goes, ‘old is gold’. We should learn to appreciate our old classics more.
