It’s still one of the best-selling rock singles of all time, was voted The Song of the Millennium in 2000, and was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the No. The song and the band inspired the box-office hit biopic starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. Watch the video above to learn how this song that no one thought would be successful became the best rock song ever recorded. Following is a transcript of the video. Narrator: It’s a song you’ve all heard at least once. And it was probably not like anything you’ve heard before. I’m of course talking about Queen’s legendary single «Bohemian Rhapsody,» a song that, even 40 years later, is one of the most influential and memorable songs of our generation.
But have you ever wondered why this six-minute single that no one ever thought would be a hit became one of the most famous songs ever written? Bohemian Rhapsody» was a song long in the making, but it officially kicked into gear in the summer of 1975, when Freddie Mercury began writing it as an operatic piece titled, «Real Life. After the success of their last album «Sheer Heart Attack,» Queen was given complete creative freedom and control over their next piece. And it’s obvious that they took that creative freedom and ran with it. Irwin Fisch: «Bohemian Rhapsody» had a very rare effect on people, which is that it was one of those songs where the first time you heard it, you hadn’t heard anything like it. In my image is that it’s the kind of song that makes you pull over to the side of the road, because you go, «What the devil is this? Very few songs have done that, and that did.
Bohemian Rhapsody» was different for its time and still is today. Unlike most pop hits that lasted around three minutes, it was a six-minute pop single that has an opera, an opera, right in the middle of the song. Fisch: It actually in some ways hasn’t been influential, because it was so fully realized that it was a little bit of, «Where do we go from here? It managed to become a ubiquitous part of the culture and something that never gets off the radio and never stops in the karaoke bars and is used in movies, and it’s all over the place because nobody has still done anything that sounds like that. Narrator: One of the reasons why «Bohemian Rhapsody» sounds so different is in its structure. The song is neither an a cappella, a ballad, an opera or rock. It’s actually all of them in one song. Fisch: It advanced a tradition of suites in pop music, meaning not a continuous song, not a verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge structure, which was the norm. A put together group of different songs, in essence. Narrator: «Bohemian Rhapsody» can actually be divided into five different sections: an a cappella introduction. It was also highly unusual for a popular single to not include a chorus, while combining different musical styles and lyrics. It is by definition a mind-blowing genre bender. Fisch: This innovation started around the mid-’60s. It started basically with the Beach Boys and the Beatles.
