A song…Rhapsody

Yes, I am talking about Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. This is one of my favorite songs. Thought I would share it here. Freddy Mercury reminds me of a friend of mine that passed away about 30 years ago, and has a special place in my heart as a result.

Hope you enjoy.

  1. This song brings back memories. I had to stop playing it because it made me cry. Not really sad tears…just made me think of my handicapped brother.
    When we were young…we would travel to South Dakota in the summer for family reunions and other things. And we had 2 station wagons and all 9 of us would pack up and drive. And in the Station wagon my brother drove….he would play this tape. I think I knew all the lyrics to their songs because he would rewind and play them again and again.

    1. I had a friend who, in my mind, looked like Freddy that died of AIDS back then and every time I look at Freddy, i remember him, I will confess that I found both men very very attractive. But in addition, I love this song because of the sounds more even than the words.

  2. This was the moment when Queen showed to the world that there was something more to popular music than the bog-standard rubbish we had all got used to hearing. The song and methodology in creating it was a seminal wake up call for listeners and musicians alike. The song never shows its age and has a timeless quality that all the classics possess.

    I love the moment in “Wayne’s World” when they’re driving in the car listening to this song and start freaking out during the rock opera sequence.
