Hi I reckon that they should re-release Bo Rhap either on 31st October this year, 5th September next year or 24th November this year

For you newbies let me point it out to you:
30 years ago this year Bo Rhap was first released
60 years ago next year Freddie was born
15 years ago next year Freddie died

It would be great for Bo Rhap to be No. 1 again
I hope it will No. 1 for 17 weeks then Bo Rhap will finally get their Longest Weeks At No. 1 title back and beat Bryan Adams

Bo Rhap re-release is a must and i think it would bring in a few new fans.

It would be great! I think that I have never heard it on radio... Well, im not that much into radio anyway... How many times have you heard it?
Remember that I became a queen-fan just one year ago.

Everything I Do (I Do It For You) was no.1 in 1991 for about 3 months for Brian Adams, if I remember rightly....

I'd like to see Bo Rhap re-released too....wonder what the b-side(s) would be though?

I can hardly wait for this dead horse to be flogged further.

How about something original, instead of the same old shit?

If you like this song, you can currently get ANATO on CD for £4.99. Why does it need to be released as a 3 track single for £3.99?

I've heard it on the radio heaps of times. Only a bit less than a year ago I didn't know what Bohemian Rhapsody was, I had heard of it and wondered what all the fuss was about. And then one day i saw the video and it had the name and artist and i was like "i've heard this heaps of times!"

You see the problem with re-realesing Bo Rhap is it's been on that many Greatest Hits stuff everyones got it. ABBA released Waterloo again last year for it's anniversary, and it charted at about number 30 because everyone (In England anyway) has a copy somewhere on something in their house or at their mums or something.

However, that was Waterloo, where Napolean did surrender. It wasn't Bohemian Rhapsody, where someone killed a man, saw a little silhouetoo of a man, and wished he had never been born at all.

Lets keep J-Lo, Beyonce, Nelly and Usher away from the top spot. It sounds ridiculous that these people have had about 12 number ones and Queen have had like 5. Then again Queen have sold alot more and being at number one doesn't mean what it used to. To get a gold record you have to sell about a quarter of what you used to have to sell. Tut.

Well they've been re-releasing Elvis's singles and he's done bugger all since 1977.

I think they should re-release Bo Rhap as well as release some stuff related to ANATO this year. Because this year is also the 30th anniversary from ANATO release.

Hear, hear sir!

Queenrocks: "...they should re-release Bo Rhap either on 31st October this year, 5th September next year or 24th November this year"

Do NOT worry. This anniversary (30th) WILL be celebrated. You will have a NEW UNRELEASED "A Night At The Opera" special edition set. There, you can have the Bo Rhap you deperately desire.

has it been re-released just once? i dunno, think that things should just stay how they are its great to celebrate certain occasions but is it necessary? cos well, we will remember Freddie and Bo Rhap no matter what and whtever anyone says, Queen have still sold out on these up and coming tours so they can't be doing much wrong, therefore is there any need for this - id prefer something fresh, and new!

maybe what will happen is that Bo Rhap would be part of a double a-side or EP to promote something different - perhaps the b-sides?

i.e. double a-side with I Go Crazy or EP with I Go Crazy, Soul Brother & A Human Body?
