Queen should have saved "Bohemian Rhapsody" for the Hot Space album.  That track would have MADE that album and gone a long way to keep Queen's momentum in the States.  They could have placed the track right between "Body Language" and "Action This Day" on side one.

Well look at it this way - the band always maintained that if Opera hadn't taken off, they probably would've folded.  Without Bohemian Rhapsody snowballing the way it did, that's exactly what would've happened.  So I'm going to assume the original poster is kidding.  Although I kind of like the idea.  I've just made a playlist in iTunes that sandwiches Bohemian Rhapsody into the Hot Space album in a really ridiculous spot.

There is on Hot Space at least the only other relation or refernece to Bohemian Rhapsody.

In Bohemian Rhapsody Freddie asks the question 'Is this the real life?'
In 'Life is Real" he gives an answer.

I'll give you some free advice; never take laxatives at the same time as sleeping pills.

Maybe they should have saved Liar for the Innuendo LP huh? Yeah, Bo Rap could have worked on the Hot Space album if they added electronic drums and a horn section!

Yes, I was joking with that initial post.  I am not sure how such a bizarre idea entered my mind -- no drugs that morning, I'm afraid -- but I just had to share.

Brilliant idea!! Email Brian now and he can go through and take BoRap off all the ANATO reissues and add it to Hot Space!

Haha. No they should have done a Extended Remix of Bohemian Rhapsody with the unused "bum bum bum" by David Bowie from Cool Cat in the operatic section. That would have fit right in with Life Is Real, etc. etc. (NOT SERIOUS)
