As you can see, almost all songs has a huge best position with ofcourse "Bohemian Rhapsody" as absolutely big subject as NINE TIMES CHAMPIONS. My conclusion: many citizens of Holland are fond of Queen. (I wonder if titles of "The Cosmos Rocks" will be in the top 2000 in the future. My opinion, I guess not because this album isn't good as it is according to the Dutch music magazines.)

Feel free to give comment.
