Queen performing Bohemian Rhapsody live at Wembley 1986.
"Bohemian Rhapsody" Is a song written by Freddie Mercury and originally recorded by the band Queen for their 1975 album A Night at the Opera. The song is in the style of a rock opera, and has a very unusual musical structure for a piece of popular music (it has no chorus, instead consisting of various sections including an a cappella and heavy metal part). Despite this, it was released as a single and became a huge commercial success. In addition, the song is widely hailed as Queen's magnum opus, and it marked a decisive point in the band's career and setting them on the way to become one of the world's most popular music groups. The single was accompanied by what is generally cited as a groundbreaking music video (then termed a "promotional video") which helped establish the visual language of the modern music video. The song was included in all of Queen's subsequent live concert performances and still enjoys great popularity around the world.
