I admit I haven't heard this alleged masterpiece by 10cc. How similar is it to 'Bo Rhap'?


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I've got that track.It does sound a little like Bo Rhap.But its really drawn out.At 8 minutes 21 secs.To cap it all,thats just part 1.Part 2 is called "Same Nuit A Paris" and it i believe is just as long.

Well, I listened to it and loved it. While 'Bo Rhap' isn't a rip-off at all, it's certainly overrated when people talk about how original it was for the time ... I did know, long before listening to 'Paris', that 'Not in Love' had more vocal overdubs and was longer than 'Bo Rhap', and was on top of the charts in June, predating Queen by some months.

Queen are underrated in many ways, overrated in others, like virtually every supergroup. No wonder why Graham doesn't like 'Bo Rhap' :)
