Bohemian Rhapsody

All arrangements of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

Bohemian Rhapsody Bohemian Rhapsody is a song by the British rock band Queen. Written by Freddie Mercury in 1975, it is a sixminute 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. It was reportedly the most expensive single ever made at the time of its release, and it became one of the bestselling singles of all time.

Freddie Mercury wrote Bohemian Rhapsody at his home in London. He reportedly spent several weeks writing and rewriting the lyrics, which were autobiographical in nature. The song was recorded in two parts at Rockfield Studios in Wales. The first part was the ballad section and the second part was the rock section. The band then spent 24 hours mixing the song. The song has been highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike. It has received several awards, including the Brit Award for British Single of the Year in 1976. In 2004, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It is also one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. The song has been covered by many artists, including the pop group Glee, which released a version of Bohemian Rhapsody in 2010.
