So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is actually an orchestral suite in three movements.

It spent nine weeks at the top of the single’s chart in 1976.

The first movement, “Mama, just killed a man...” is the piano ballad, with that guitar solo beginning about 1:45.

That segues into the operatic section beginning 2:05,

 “Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango?”,

 complete with a very good light show.

An explosion rocks the venue at 3:10 and rips into the hard-rock chorus with the title of this post...

and by 4:04 they are wrapping it up--

Nothin’ really matters, anyone can see, 
nothin’ really me.”  

By 5:30, it’s over.

Don’t compare Freddie Mercury to God.

God’s good, but he’s no Freddie Mercury.

  1. Thanks. Brought back a good memory when the twins were 10 and the boys were 4 and 2. We were driving somewhere the song came on and Thanks to Waynes World, all four kids were head bobbing in my rear veiw mirrow and all together. Thanks again xo ms t
