Which one of those would you choose as your favorite?
I know both are great, but I would pick TMOTBQ, because I can find myself better there. :)

I pick Bohemian Rhapsody, it's a real masterpiece... I wonder why is it so cool on this board to say that BoRhap isn't the best Queen song, but when it comes to voting for the best song, it's always BoRhap on first place?!


I LOVE QUEEN!

That's mainly in stats that are not representative for Queen-fans.

Non-Queens fans don't know other great songs, Queen fans often choose BoRhap in those contests because they want a Queen-song to top the charts (and very often it does). A poll among Queen-fans can come to entirely different results. BoRhap still is a great song, though (just heard it too often).

Even though BR is overplayed it's still the better song I'd say.

I vote for Bo Rhap because it`s catchier, and imo better structured. March sounds so ... random sometimes.


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.

TMOTBQ - without hesitation for me.

I think TMOTBQ is more complex, and it brings a lot of interesting ideas. I can't get bored listening to it over and over again.

For me,they are all upgrading and improving of the same type of song.Starting from the virginal"My Fairy King" of Queen I,passing truogh the intricated "March of the Black Queen" of Queen II,then leading to the masterpiece of all time,A night at the Opera containing "The song",Bo Rap.


Freddie Mercury.

A wonderful human being and simply the greatest singer,performer and composer of our times.

Bohemian Rhapsody.
Although I do love TMOTBQ. Especially the part that was performed in the Live medly's in the early days and the little reprise bit were you think it's over, then it comes back.

I love Bo Rhap, But MOTBQ is my favorite. So much more going on in the song. I'd love to see a dvd of Brian disecting Black Queen section by section like on the GVH1 dvd.

March of the Black Queen for me, any day. I also think Queen II is a far better album than A Night at the Opera.


That's right, I said it. Whatcha gonna do about it?

March Of The Black Queen. Bohemian Rhapsody is great; I've just heard it way too many times.

Both are great, but I think Bo Rhap is way better. Although I don't think there would even be a Bo Rahp if there wasn't MOTBQ.
