Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody (Official Video Remastered)

The single was accompanied by a groundbreaking promotional video. According to Mercury's friend Chris Smith a keyboard player in Smile , Mercury first started developing "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the late s; Mercury used to play parts of songs he was writing at the time on the piano, and one of his pieces, known simply as "The Cowboy Song", contained lyrics that ended up in the completed version produced years later, in , specifically, "Mama Queen spent a month rehearsing at Ridge Farm Studio in Surrey in mid, and drummer Roger Taylor recalled that "Bohemian Rhapsody" was one of the songs the band worked on while they were there.

Bechstein concert grand piano, which he played in the promotional video and the UK tour. Due to the elaborate nature of the song, it was recorded in various sections.

It was basically a joke, but a successful joke. We had to record it in three separate units. We did the whole beginning bit, then the whole middle bit and then the whole end.

It was complete madness. The middle part started off being just a couple of seconds, but Freddie kept coming in with more "Galileos" and we kept on adding to the opera section, and it just got bigger and bigger.

We never stopped laughing It started off as a ballad, but the end was heavy. May, Mercury, and Taylor reportedly sang their vocal parts continually for 10 to 12 hours a day.

In the end, eighth-generation tapes were used. May recalled placing a tape in front of the light and being able to see through it, as the tape had been used so many times.

At that time, the band was using track equipment. Producer Baker recalls that May's solo was done on only one track, rather than recording multiple tracks.

May stated that he wanted to compose "a little tune that would be a counterpart to the main melody; I didn't just want to play the melody".

The guitarist said that his better material stems from this way of working: in which he thought of the tune before playing it: "the fingers tend to be predictable unless being led by the brain.

If you really listen to it, the ballad starts off clean, and as the opera section gets louder and louder, the vocals get more and more distorted.

You can still hear this on the CD. They are clearly distorted. Music scholar Sheila Whiteley suggests that "the title draws strongly on contemporary rock ideology, the individualism of the bohemian artists' world, with rhapsody affirming the romantic ideals of art rock ".

A hard rock part follows this and it concludes with a coda. This musical format of writing a song as a suite with changes in style, tone and tempo throughout was uncommon in most mainstream pop and rock music but common in progressive rock.

The lyrics question whether life is "real" or "just fantasy caught in a landslide " before concluding that there can be "no escape from reality".

The narrator introduces himself as "just a poor boy" but declares that he "needs no sympathy" because he is "easy come, easy go" and then "little high, little low" when heard in stereo , the words "little high" come from the left speaker and the "little low" comes from the right ; chromatic side-slipping on "easy come, easy go" highlights the dream-like atmosphere.

After it plays twice, Mercury's vocals enter. Throughout the section, the vocals evolve from a softly sung harmony to an impassioned solo performance by Mercury.

The narrator explains to his mother that he has "just killed a man," with "a gun against his head" and in doing so, has thrown his life away.

This "confessional" section, Whiteley comments, is "affirmative of the nurturant and life-giving force of the feminine and the need for absolution".

The narrator makes the second of several invocations to his "mama" in the new key, continuing the original theme. The narrator explains his regret over "mak[ing] you cry" and urging "mama" to "carry on as if nothing really matters".

A brief, descending variation of the piano phrase connects to the second verse. Then the piano intro plays, marking the start of the second verse.

As the ballad proceeds into its second verse, the speaker confesses how ashamed he is by his act of murder as May enters on guitar and mimics the upper range of the piano at May imitates a bell tree during the line "sends shivers down my spine", by playing the strings of his guitar on the other side of the bridge.

The intensity continues to build, but once the bass line completes its descent establishing modulation to the new key A major , the entire band cuts out abruptly at except for quiet, staccato A major quaver eighth-note chords on the piano, marking the start of the "Opera" section.

A rapid series of rhythmic and harmonic changes introduces a pseudo-operatic midsection, which contains the bulk of the elaborate vocal multi-tracking, depicting the narrator's descent into hell.

While the underlying pulse of the song is maintained, the dynamics vary greatly from bar to bar, from only Mercury's voice accompanied by a piano to a multi-voice choir supported by drums, bass, piano, and timpani.

The choir effect was created by having May, Mercury, and Taylor repeatedly sing their vocal parts, resulting in separate overdubs.

These overdubs were then combined into successive submixes. According to Roger Taylor, the voices of May, Mercury, and himself combined created a wide vocal range: "Brian could get down quite low, Freddie had a powerful voice through the middle, and I was good at the high stuff.

Also, on "Let him go", Taylor singing the top section carries his note on further after the rest of the "choir" have stopped singing.

The section concludes with a full choral treatment of the lyric " Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me! Using the track technology available at the time, the "opera" section took about three weeks to finish.

The operatic section leads into a rock interlude with a guitar riff written by Mercury. At , a quadruple-tracked Mercury in stereo, the four parts are panned two on the left and two on the right sings angry lyrics addressed to an unspecified "you", accusing them of betrayal and abuse and insisting "can't do this to me, baby", before the final lines conclude that the singer "just gotta get right outta" an unspecified "here".

Three ascending guitar runs follow. A guitar accompanies the chorus "ooh, ooh yeah, ooh yeah. Mercury's line "Nothing really matters The final line, "Any way the wind blows", is followed by the quiet sound of a large tam-tam that finally expels the tension built up throughout the song.

The New York Times commented that "the song's most distinct feature is the fatalistic lyrics". Mercury refused to explain his composition other than to say it was about relationships; the band is still protective of the song's secret.

He recalls "Freddie was a very complex person: flippant and funny on the surface, but he concealed insecurities and problems in squaring up his life with his childhood.

He never explained the lyrics, but I think he put a lot of himself into that song. When the band released a Greatest Hits cassette in Iran, a leaflet in Persian was included with translation and explanations refers to a book published in Iran called The March of the Black Queen by Sarah Sefati and Farhad Arkani, which included the whole biography of the band and complete lyrics with Persian translation In the explanation, Queen states that "Bohemian Rhapsody" is about a young man who has accidentally killed someone and, like Faust , sold his soul to the devil.

On the night before his execution, he calls for God saying, " Bismillah " "In the name of God" in Arabic , and with the help of angels, regains his soul from Shaitan the devil in Islam.

Despite this, critics, both journalistic and academic, have speculated over the meaning behind the song's lyrics.

Some believe the lyrics describe a suicidal murderer haunted by demons or depict events just preceding an execution.

The latter explanation points to Albert Camus 's novel The Stranger , in which a young man confesses to an impulsive murder and has an epiphany before he is executed, as probable inspiration.

Others believe the lyrics were only written to fit with the music, and have no meaning; the DJ, television entertainer and comedian Kenny Everett , who played an influential role in popularising the single on his radio show on Capital Radio , quoted Mercury as claiming the lyrics were simply "random rhyming nonsense".

Still, others interpreted them as Mercury's way of dealing with personal issues. She suggests that the song provides an insight into Mercury's emotional state at the time, "living with Mary 'Mamma', as in Mother Mary and wanting to break away 'Mamma Mia let me go' ".

When the band wanted to release the single in , various executives suggested to them that, at 5 minutes and 55 seconds, it was too long and would never be a hit.

Audience demand intensified when Everett played the full song on his show 14 times in two days. Drew managed to get a copy of the tape and started to play it in the States, which forced the hand of Queen's US label, Elektra.

In an interview with Sound on Sound , Baker reflects that "it was a strange situation where radio on both sides of the Atlantic was breaking a record that the record companies said would never get airplay!

Hall stated "Monster, Monster! This could be a hit! The song became the UK Christmas number one , holding the top position for nine weeks.

The second was upon its re-release as a double A-side single with " These Are the Days of Our Lives " in following Mercury's death, staying at number one for five weeks.

In the United States, the single was also a success, although to a lesser extent than in the UK. The single, released in December , reached number nine on the Billboard Hot and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of one million copies.

The song re-entered the Billboard Hot chart after 16 years, reaching number two and spending 17 weeks on the chart, with a year-end chart position of After the release of the Queen biopic named after the song , it re-entered the charts for a third time at No.

Though some artists had made video clips to accompany songs including Queen themselves; for example, their earlier singles " Keep Yourself Alive ", " Liar ", " Seven Seas of Rhye " and " Killer Queen " already had "pop promos", as they were known at the time , it was only after the success of "Bohemian Rhapsody" that it became a regular practice for record companies to produce promotional videos for artists' single releases.

A promo video also allowed the artist to have their music broadcast and accompanied by their own choice of visuals, rather than dancers such as Pan's People.

According to May, the video was produced so that the band could avoid miming on Top of the Pops since they would have looked off miming to such a complex song.

The band used Trillion, a subsidiary of Trident Studios , their former management company and recording studio.

They hired one of their trucks and got it to Elstree Studios , where the band was rehearsing for their tour. The video opens with a shot of the four band members in near darkness as they sing the a cappella part.

The lights fade up, and the shots cross-fade into close-ups of Freddie. The composition of the shot is the same as Mick Rock 's cover photograph for their second album Queen II.

The photo, inspired by a photograph of actress Marlene Dietrich , was the band's favourite image of themselves. In the opera section of the video, the scene reverts to the Queen II standing positions, after which they perform once again on stage during the hard rock segment.

In the closing seconds of the video Roger Taylor is depicted stripped to the waist, striking the tam tam in the manner of the trademark of the Rank Organisation 's Gongman , familiar in the UK as the opening of all Rank film productions.

All of the special effects were achieved during the recording, rather than editing. The visual effect of Mercury's face cascading away during the echoed lines "Magnifico" and "Let me go" was accomplished by pointing the camera at a monitor, giving visual feedback , a glare analogous to audio feedback.

The honeycomb illusion was created using a shaped lens. The video was edited within five hours because it was due to be broadcast the same week in which it was taped.

The video was sent to the BBC as soon as it was completed and aired for the first time on Top of the Pops in November The most obvious difference is the flames superimposed over the introduction as well as several alternative camera angles.

Although the song has become one of the most revered in popular music history, [56] the initial critical reaction was mixed.

The UK music papers reacted with bemusement, recognising that the song was original and technically accomplished, but they mostly remained indifferent.

Pete Erskine of NME observed that, "It'll be interesting to see whether it'll be played in its entirety on the radio. It's performed extremely well, but more in terms of production than anything else Someone somewhere has decided that the boys' next release must sound 'epic'.

And it does. They sound extremely self-important. Allan Jones of Melody Maker was unimpressed, describing the song as "a superficially impressive pastiche of incongruous musical styles" and that Queen "contrived to approximate the demented fury of the Balham Amateur Operatic Society performing The Pirates of Penzance It's likely to be a hit of enormous proportions despite its length.

There's no denying that it's devilishly clever, encompassing everything from bits of operatic harmonies to snatches that sound like Sparks and David Cassidy , but, in the end the whole adds up to less than the sum of its parts.

In , when asked for his opinion on "Bohemian Rhapsody", the Beach Boys ' leader Brian Wilson praised the song as "the most competitive thing that's come along in ages" and "a fulfillment and an answer to a teenage prayer—of artistic music".

Addressing the song's enduring popularity, author and music lecturer Jochen Eisentraut wrote in "A year before punk made it unfashionable, progressive rock had an astounding success with the theoretically over-length nearly 6-minute single 'Bohemian Rhapsody' which bore many of the hallmarks of the 'prog' genre".

He said it was "unique at this point to hear a hit single in this style", it was "more accessible than other music of the genre" and was "able to communicate beyond the usual confines of the style".

In , The Guardian ' s music critic, Tom Service , examined the song's relationship with the traditions of classical music , describing its popularity as "one of the strangest musical phenomena out there":.

The precedents of Bohemian Rhapsody are as much in the 19th-century classical traditions of rhapsodic, quasi-improvisational reveries—like, say, the piano works of Schumann or Chopin or the tone-poems of Strauss or Liszt —as they are in prog-rock or the contemporary pop of That's because the song manages a sleight of musical hand that only a handful of real master-musicians have managed: the illusion that its huge variety of styles—from intro, to ballad, to operatic excess, to hard-rock, to reflective coda—are unified into a single statement, a drama that somehow makes sense.

It's a classic example of the unity in diversity that high-minded musical commentators have heard in the symphonies of Beethoven or the operas of Mozart.

And that's exactly what the piece is: a miniature operatic-rhapsodic-symphonic-tone-poem. They observed both songs were "a slow, introspective beginning and gradual climb to a raging metal jam and back again", with the notable distinction being "while Zeppelin meshed folk influences with heavy metal, Queen opted for the light grandeur of the operetta as part of its hard rock".

They said "for sheer cleverness alone, not to mention May's riveting electric work, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' rightfully became one of the top singles of and established Queen in the elite of seventies rock bands".

In , The Economist described it as "one of the most innovative pieces of the progressive rock era". It wrote "though Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and the Beatles ' Paul McCartney had experimented with symphonic elements, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd and Pete Townshend of the Who had created narrative albums with distinct 'movements', none had had the audacity to import a miniature opera into rock music.

In , the song enjoyed renewed popularity in the United States after being featured in a scene in the film Wayne's World , in which the titular character and his friends headbang in a car to the rock part near the end of the song.

Mike Myers insisted that the song fit the scene. Gracyk suggests that beginning the tape in the middle of the song after "the lyrics which provide the song's narrative In connection with this, a new video was released, interspersing excerpts from the film with footage from the original Queen video, along with some live footage of the band.

Myers was horrified that the record company had mixed clips from Wayne's World with Queen's original video, fearing that this would upset the band. He said, "they've just whizzed on a Picasso.

The band, though, sent a reply simply saying, "Thank you for using our song. In the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody , Myers has a cameo as a fictional record executive who pans the song and refuses to release it as a single, proclaiming that it is too long for radio and that it is not a song that "teenagers can crank up the volume in their car and bang their heads to", a reference to the iconic scene in Wayne's World.

The song has won numerous awards and has been covered and parodied by many artists. In , the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

In a poll of more than 50, readers of The Observer newspaper and viewers of British TV's Channel 4 for the best number-one singles of all time, the song came second to John Lennon 's " Imagine ".

Over two dozen artists have recorded or performed cover versions of "Bohemian Rhapsody", including charted singles releases by The Braids for the soundtrack to the film High School High , [85] and by Panic!

This includes the first live "professionally" recorded performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody". The a cappella opening was too complex to perform live, so Mercury tried various ways of introducing the song.

When the song "Mustapha" became a live favourite, Mercury would often sub in that song's a cappella opening, which was easier to reproduce live as it was only one voice.

During the Hot Space Tour , and occasionally at other times, Mercury would do a piano improvisation generally the introduction to "Death on Two Legs" that ended with the first notes of the song.

Often, the preceding song would end, and Mercury would sit at the piano, say a quick word, and start playing the ballad section.

Initially following the song's release, the operatic middle section proved a problem for the band. Because of extensive multi-tracking, it could not be performed on stage.

The band did not have enough of a break between the Sheer Heart Attack and A Night at the Opera tours to find a way to make it work live, so they split the song into three sections that were played throughout the night.

The opening and closing ballads were played as part of a medley, with " Killer Queen " and "March of the Black Queen" taking the place of the operatic and hard rock sections.

In concerts where the same medley was played, the operatic section from the album would be played from tape as the introduction to the setlist.

During this playback, Mercury would appear briefly to sing live for the line, "I see a little sillhouetto of a man".

Starting with the A Day at the Races Tour in , the band adopted their lasting way of playing the song live.

The opening ballad would be played on stage, and after Brian May's guitar solo, the lights would go down, the band would leave the stage, and the operatic section would be played from tape, while coloured stage lights provided a light show based around the voices of the opera section.

Most playings of the opera section from the tape would often be accompanied by a portion of the song's music video containing the footage used for the operatic portion of the song.

Other playings would be played over montages of footage filmed from the band members' other experiences throughout their daily lives.

A blast of pyrotechnics after Roger Taylor's high note on the final "for me" would announce the band's return for the hard rock section and closing ballad.

Queen played the song in this form all through the Magic Tour of This style was also used for the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert , with Elton John singing the opening ballad and then after the taped operatic section, Axl Rose singing the hard rock section.

John and Rose sang the closing ballad part together in a duet. As with the Queen tours, the band went backstage for the operatic section, which was accompanied by a video tribute to Freddie Mercury.

When the hard rock section began, the lights came back up to the full band on stage, including Rodgers, who took over lead vocals.

Rodgers duetted with the recording of Mercury for the "outro" section, allowing the audience to sing the final "Nothing really matters to me", while the taped Mercury took a bow for the crowd.

Rodgers would then repeat the line, and the final line "Any way the wind blows" was delivered with one last shot of Mercury smiling at the audience.

Commenting upon this staging, Brian May says that they "had to rise to the challenge of getting Freddie in there in a way which gave him his rightful place, but without demeaning Paul in any way.

It also kept us live and 'present', although conscious and proud of our past, as we logically should be.

I always wanted to do something operatic. I wanted something with a mood setter at the start, going into a rock type of thing which completely breaks off into an opera section, a vicious twist and then returns to the theme.

Just certain pieces. I wanted to create what I thought Queen could do. It was as far as my limited capacity could take me. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career.

Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid.

While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.

Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Written by Twentieth Century Fox. One of the best movies of the year!

The performances are all excellent. The music surpasses what I had imagined. Brings back the eighties superbly. The last 15 to 20 brought tears to many in the showing I was at.

Dave Calhoun wrote for Time Out : "It boasts a film-stealing, possessed performance by Rami Malek, who pouts, struts and quips as Mercury, turning the rest of the cast into bit-part players The movie, though catchy and often seductive, is an act of brazen myth-making.

Facts and chronology are tossed aside in favor of a messianic storyline Much is left out, or fiddled with. The film received criticism for its portrayal of Mercury's gay relationships.

Aja Romano wrote for Vox : " Bohemian Rhapsody is a movie that consciously tries to position a gay man at its center while strategically disengaging with the 'gay' part as much as it can, flitting briefly over his emotional and sexual experiences and fixating on his platonic relationship with an ex-girlfriend instead.

In the film's critical reviews, Brian May responded: "The mistake that critics made was reviewing the trailer instead of reviewing the film.

They jumped to conclusions. Once people stake their claim, it's hard for them to withdraw. If you like Queen's music, see the Queen film," and he likened the critics' negative reaction to the film to the original reaction to the song "Bohemian Rhapsody" and the popular musical We Will Rock You.

Upon getting nominated for, and winning its Best Editing awards, several clips from the film gained attention online and were criticized for their poor editing styles and continuity errors.

Editor John Ottman , aware of the quality of the clips, explained that they were the result of mixing Singer and Fletcher-shot scenes, as well as in response to the producers' and test audiences' desires for dialogue and pacing, and he wished he could have handled them differently.

The New York Times commented that "the song's most distinct feature is the fatalistic lyrics". Mercury refused to explain his composition other than to say it was about relationships; the band is still protective of the song's secret.

He recalls "Freddie was a very complex person: flippant and funny on the surface, but he concealed insecurities and problems in squaring up his life with his childhood.

He never explained the lyrics, but I think he put a lot of himself into that song. When the band released a Greatest Hits cassette in Iran, a leaflet in Persian was included with translation and explanations refers to a book published in Iran called The March of the Black Queen by Sarah Sefati and Farhad Arkani, which included the whole biography of the band and complete lyrics with Persian translation In the explanation, Queen states that "Bohemian Rhapsody" is about a young man who has accidentally killed someone and, like Faust , sold his soul to the devil.

On the night before his execution, he calls for God saying, " Bismillah " "In the name of God" in Arabic , and with the help of angels, regains his soul from Shaitan the devil in Islam.

Despite this, critics, both journalistic and academic, have speculated over the meaning behind the song's lyrics.

Some believe the lyrics describe a suicidal murderer haunted by demons or depict events just preceding an execution. The latter explanation points to Albert Camus 's novel The Stranger , in which a young man confesses to an impulsive murder and has an epiphany before he is executed, as probable inspiration.

Others believe the lyrics were only written to fit with the music, and have no meaning; the DJ, television entertainer and comedian Kenny Everett , who played an influential role in popularising the single on his radio show on Capital Radio , quoted Mercury as claiming the lyrics were simply "random rhyming nonsense".

Still, others interpreted them as Mercury's way of dealing with personal issues. She suggests that the song provides an insight into Mercury's emotional state at the time, "living with Mary 'Mamma', as in Mother Mary and wanting to break away 'Mamma Mia let me go' ".

When the band wanted to release the single in , various executives suggested to them that, at 5 minutes and 55 seconds, it was too long and would never be a hit.

Audience demand intensified when Everett played the full song on his show 14 times in two days. Drew managed to get a copy of the tape and started to play it in the States, which forced the hand of Queen's US label, Elektra.

In an interview with Sound on Sound , Baker reflects that "it was a strange situation where radio on both sides of the Atlantic was breaking a record that the record companies said would never get airplay!

Hall stated "Monster, Monster! This could be a hit! The song became the UK Christmas number one , holding the top position for nine weeks.

The second was upon its re-release as a double A-side single with " These Are the Days of Our Lives " in following Mercury's death, staying at number one for five weeks.

In the United States, the single was also a success, although to a lesser extent than in the UK. The single, released in December , reached number nine on the Billboard Hot and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of one million copies.

The song re-entered the Billboard Hot chart after 16 years, reaching number two and spending 17 weeks on the chart, with a year-end chart position of After the release of the Queen biopic named after the song , it re-entered the charts for a third time at No.

Though some artists had made video clips to accompany songs including Queen themselves; for example, their earlier singles " Keep Yourself Alive ", " Liar ", " Seven Seas of Rhye " and " Killer Queen " already had "pop promos", as they were known at the time , it was only after the success of "Bohemian Rhapsody" that it became a regular practice for record companies to produce promotional videos for artists' single releases.

A promo video also allowed the artist to have their music broadcast and accompanied by their own choice of visuals, rather than dancers such as Pan's People.

According to May, the video was produced so that the band could avoid miming on Top of the Pops since they would have looked off miming to such a complex song.

The band used Trillion, a subsidiary of Trident Studios , their former management company and recording studio. They hired one of their trucks and got it to Elstree Studios , where the band was rehearsing for their tour.

The video opens with a shot of the four band members in near darkness as they sing the a cappella part. The lights fade up, and the shots cross-fade into close-ups of Freddie.

The composition of the shot is the same as Mick Rock 's cover photograph for their second album Queen II.

The photo, inspired by a photograph of actress Marlene Dietrich , was the band's favourite image of themselves. In the opera section of the video, the scene reverts to the Queen II standing positions, after which they perform once again on stage during the hard rock segment.

In the closing seconds of the video Roger Taylor is depicted stripped to the waist, striking the tam tam in the manner of the trademark of the Rank Organisation 's Gongman , familiar in the UK as the opening of all Rank film productions.

All of the special effects were achieved during the recording, rather than editing. The visual effect of Mercury's face cascading away during the echoed lines "Magnifico" and "Let me go" was accomplished by pointing the camera at a monitor, giving visual feedback , a glare analogous to audio feedback.

The honeycomb illusion was created using a shaped lens. The video was edited within five hours because it was due to be broadcast the same week in which it was taped.

The video was sent to the BBC as soon as it was completed and aired for the first time on Top of the Pops in November The most obvious difference is the flames superimposed over the introduction as well as several alternative camera angles.

Although the song has become one of the most revered in popular music history, [56] the initial critical reaction was mixed. The UK music papers reacted with bemusement, recognising that the song was original and technically accomplished, but they mostly remained indifferent.

Pete Erskine of NME observed that, "It'll be interesting to see whether it'll be played in its entirety on the radio. It's performed extremely well, but more in terms of production than anything else Someone somewhere has decided that the boys' next release must sound 'epic'.

And it does. They sound extremely self-important. Allan Jones of Melody Maker was unimpressed, describing the song as "a superficially impressive pastiche of incongruous musical styles" and that Queen "contrived to approximate the demented fury of the Balham Amateur Operatic Society performing The Pirates of Penzance It's likely to be a hit of enormous proportions despite its length.

There's no denying that it's devilishly clever, encompassing everything from bits of operatic harmonies to snatches that sound like Sparks and David Cassidy , but, in the end the whole adds up to less than the sum of its parts.

In , when asked for his opinion on "Bohemian Rhapsody", the Beach Boys ' leader Brian Wilson praised the song as "the most competitive thing that's come along in ages" and "a fulfillment and an answer to a teenage prayer—of artistic music".

Addressing the song's enduring popularity, author and music lecturer Jochen Eisentraut wrote in "A year before punk made it unfashionable, progressive rock had an astounding success with the theoretically over-length nearly 6-minute single 'Bohemian Rhapsody' which bore many of the hallmarks of the 'prog' genre".

He said it was "unique at this point to hear a hit single in this style", it was "more accessible than other music of the genre" and was "able to communicate beyond the usual confines of the style".

In , The Guardian ' s music critic, Tom Service , examined the song's relationship with the traditions of classical music , describing its popularity as "one of the strangest musical phenomena out there":.

The precedents of Bohemian Rhapsody are as much in the 19th-century classical traditions of rhapsodic, quasi-improvisational reveries—like, say, the piano works of Schumann or Chopin or the tone-poems of Strauss or Liszt —as they are in prog-rock or the contemporary pop of That's because the song manages a sleight of musical hand that only a handful of real master-musicians have managed: the illusion that its huge variety of styles—from intro, to ballad, to operatic excess, to hard-rock, to reflective coda—are unified into a single statement, a drama that somehow makes sense.

It's a classic example of the unity in diversity that high-minded musical commentators have heard in the symphonies of Beethoven or the operas of Mozart.

And that's exactly what the piece is: a miniature operatic-rhapsodic-symphonic-tone-poem. They observed both songs were "a slow, introspective beginning and gradual climb to a raging metal jam and back again", with the notable distinction being "while Zeppelin meshed folk influences with heavy metal, Queen opted for the light grandeur of the operetta as part of its hard rock".

They said "for sheer cleverness alone, not to mention May's riveting electric work, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' rightfully became one of the top singles of and established Queen in the elite of seventies rock bands".

In , The Economist described it as "one of the most innovative pieces of the progressive rock era". It wrote "though Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and the Beatles ' Paul McCartney had experimented with symphonic elements, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd and Pete Townshend of the Who had created narrative albums with distinct 'movements', none had had the audacity to import a miniature opera into rock music.

In , the song enjoyed renewed popularity in the United States after being featured in a scene in the film Wayne's World , in which the titular character and his friends headbang in a car to the rock part near the end of the song.

Mike Myers insisted that the song fit the scene. Gracyk suggests that beginning the tape in the middle of the song after "the lyrics which provide the song's narrative In connection with this, a new video was released, interspersing excerpts from the film with footage from the original Queen video, along with some live footage of the band.

Myers was horrified that the record company had mixed clips from Wayne's World with Queen's original video, fearing that this would upset the band.

He said, "they've just whizzed on a Picasso. The band, though, sent a reply simply saying, "Thank you for using our song. In the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody , Myers has a cameo as a fictional record executive who pans the song and refuses to release it as a single, proclaiming that it is too long for radio and that it is not a song that "teenagers can crank up the volume in their car and bang their heads to", a reference to the iconic scene in Wayne's World.

The song has won numerous awards and has been covered and parodied by many artists. In , the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

In a poll of more than 50, readers of The Observer newspaper and viewers of British TV's Channel 4 for the best number-one singles of all time, the song came second to John Lennon 's " Imagine ".

Over two dozen artists have recorded or performed cover versions of "Bohemian Rhapsody", including charted singles releases by The Braids for the soundtrack to the film High School High , [85] and by Panic!

This includes the first live "professionally" recorded performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody". The a cappella opening was too complex to perform live, so Mercury tried various ways of introducing the song.

When the song "Mustapha" became a live favourite, Mercury would often sub in that song's a cappella opening, which was easier to reproduce live as it was only one voice.

During the Hot Space Tour , and occasionally at other times, Mercury would do a piano improvisation generally the introduction to "Death on Two Legs" that ended with the first notes of the song.

Often, the preceding song would end, and Mercury would sit at the piano, say a quick word, and start playing the ballad section.

Initially following the song's release, the operatic middle section proved a problem for the band. Because of extensive multi-tracking, it could not be performed on stage.

The band did not have enough of a break between the Sheer Heart Attack and A Night at the Opera tours to find a way to make it work live, so they split the song into three sections that were played throughout the night.

The opening and closing ballads were played as part of a medley, with " Killer Queen " and "March of the Black Queen" taking the place of the operatic and hard rock sections.

In concerts where the same medley was played, the operatic section from the album would be played from tape as the introduction to the setlist.

During this playback, Mercury would appear briefly to sing live for the line, "I see a little sillhouetto of a man". Starting with the A Day at the Races Tour in , the band adopted their lasting way of playing the song live.

The opening ballad would be played on stage, and after Brian May's guitar solo, the lights would go down, the band would leave the stage, and the operatic section would be played from tape, while coloured stage lights provided a light show based around the voices of the opera section.

Most playings of the opera section from the tape would often be accompanied by a portion of the song's music video containing the footage used for the operatic portion of the song.

Other playings would be played over montages of footage filmed from the band members' other experiences throughout their daily lives.

A blast of pyrotechnics after Roger Taylor's high note on the final "for me" would announce the band's return for the hard rock section and closing ballad.

Queen played the song in this form all through the Magic Tour of This style was also used for the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert , with Elton John singing the opening ballad and then after the taped operatic section, Axl Rose singing the hard rock section.

John and Rose sang the closing ballad part together in a duet. As with the Queen tours, the band went backstage for the operatic section, which was accompanied by a video tribute to Freddie Mercury.

When the hard rock section began, the lights came back up to the full band on stage, including Rodgers, who took over lead vocals.

Rodgers duetted with the recording of Mercury for the "outro" section, allowing the audience to sing the final "Nothing really matters to me", while the taped Mercury took a bow for the crowd.

Rodgers would then repeat the line, and the final line "Any way the wind blows" was delivered with one last shot of Mercury smiling at the audience.

Commenting upon this staging, Brian May says that they "had to rise to the challenge of getting Freddie in there in a way which gave him his rightful place, but without demeaning Paul in any way.

It also kept us live and 'present', although conscious and proud of our past, as we logically should be. I always wanted to do something operatic.

I wanted something with a mood setter at the start, going into a rock type of thing which completely breaks off into an opera section, a vicious twist and then returns to the theme.

Just certain pieces. I wanted to create what I thought Queen could do. It was as far as my limited capacity could take me. I'm going to shatter some illusions, it was just one of those pieces I wrote for the album: just writing my batch of songs.

In its early stages I almost rejected it, but then it grew. We started deciding on a single about halfway through.

There were a few contenders—we were thinking of " The Prophet's Song " at one point—but then "Bohemian Rhapsody" seemed the one. There was a time when the others wanted to chop it around a bit, but I refused.

If it was going to be released, it would be in its entirety. We knew it was very risky, but we had so much confidence in that song—I did anyway. I felt, underneath it all, that if it was successful it would earn a lot of respect.

People were all going, You're joking, they'll never play it, you'll only hear the first few bars and then they'll fade it out. We had numerous rows.

EMI were shocked—a six-minute single? You must be joking! The same in America—oh, you just got away with it in Britain. When we finished the album, the Night at the Opera album, that was the track on it that we thought we were gonna release as a single in the UK first.

And when we released it in Britain we didn't necessarily think it'd be released in America, cause we know even over here, you know, the AM tastes are even more [hesitates] stricter.

Anyway we did have thoughts about even in the UK, perhaps editing it down at all, but we listened to it over and over again and there was no way we could edit it.

We tried a few ideas, but if you edited it, you always lost some part of the song, so we had to leave it all in. And luckily it took off anyway.

The vocal harmonies was something we wanted to do from the beginning, as we are always keen to do that kind of thing.

We wanted to be a group that could do the heaviness of hard rock, but also have harmonies swooping around all over the place.

We thought there was some real power and emotion in that combination. The guitar solo was pretty much off the cuff, except I think I had plenty of time to think about that one.

I remember playing along with it in the studio for a while when other things were being done. I knew what kind of melody I wanted to play. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This article is about the song. For the film named after this song, see Bohemian Rhapsody film. For other uses, see Bohemian Rhapsody disambiguation.

The operatic segment enters immediately as May's solo abruptly concludes. This vast shift in style is just one example of how the song rapidly changes throughout its running time.

It's one of those songs which has such a fantasy feel about it. I think people should just listen to it, think about it, and then make up their own minds as to what it says to them I did a bit of research although it was tongue-in-cheek and mock opera.

In live performances, the operatic segment would be played from tape as it was too complicated for the band to perform live.

As the heavy rock segment followed, the band would return to the stage. Archived from the original on 24 September Retrieved 24 August The Guardian.
