Only seven years between these two songs, but what a difference in quality. Being a new fan of Queen and having collected the albums recently, I notice how different the songs are.
Body language is so full of creativity, and was right with its time whe it hit the charts.
On the other hand, Bohemian rhapsody is so tasteless and kitch, and musically so empty. The harmonies were computerized, and the song is basically built on 6 minutes bass- and drumloops.
I cannot understand the wide range of idiots that love this song, especially its tasteless and nasty video.
Body language is what I call musical brilliance and is in my opinion a masterpiece. The video is extremely original, and is a nice tribute to homosexuality, which all the queenies are in heart and soul.
Long life to it!

Body Language is perhaps Queen's best song, and Freddie's best work: That awesome slinky bass-line complements Freddie's epic vocals. The lack of guitar in that song was a BRILLIANT move. If I had to keep ONE Queen song forever, it would be Body Language. :)


No wonder it hit the top 20!

I ABSOLUTELY agree with you Dear Gregsynth! Magnificent. Actually, I'm listening to Body Language right now. Your words, accompanied with the music melody are warming my heart and sending shivers down my spine

How do I know that your post about being serious isn't sarcasm?

"Body language is so full of creativity, and was right with its time whe

i think it was before its time and a drastic change of sound.
 thats a bit why it was not very popular at first with the fans in general?

change was the motor of Queen,

no bo-rhap... no Queen mania ?

i am not going to add anything else to this post.

art will please or not !

Please, PLEASE tell me you're being sarcastic. I think I'm witnessing madness and delusion on every scale in this forum. I hope Brian, Roger, & Deaky never chance upon this site and think all their fans are babbling, bored morons.

Body Language makes sweet sticky love to little Bo-Rap, then leaves in the morning without even saying goodbye, on to the next conquest....

Both are absolutely brilliant songs. What makes them so brilliant is that they prove how diverse Queen of a band was and how how much variety Mercury had in his writing. True genious!!! Also, he could sing any genre of music flawlessly

Bo Rhap only has 2 good bits in it.....

The first good bit is just before it starts...

And second good bit is just after it ends....

The bit inbetween is rotten, especially that horrid "opera" bit.........

Nothing wrong with liking body lanuage....i could name 5 songs easily that I Dislike more.....More of that Jazz, Fun it,  put out the fire,  tear it up,  don't lose your head, party, and so on.  It's just another song to me, not a favorite of mine, but not my least favorite either.
