Bohemian Rhapsody : when I was young (about 4 years old) my parents and some family were always saying "and that's the drummer, he sings very high".

Bicycle race : funny song about ... yeah a Bicycle Race.

Don't stop me now : the first time I heard this my English wasn't that good of course so I didn't understand the lyrics but I liked the mood of the song. It made you feel like you wanted to party.

Bohemian Rhapsody-Oh my God! I was in seventh heaven. It was so amazing for me, I did not know what to say.
Bicycle Race-I did not know what to think about that song /and I still don´t know/.
Don´t stop me know-I heard it when I was just discovering Queen and it made me pretty sure that Queen will be musical Love of my Life forever.

Bohemian Rhapsody - Huh? What?

Bicycle Race - the bells - damn funny

Don't Stop Me Now - wished I'd played side 2 of the album earlier instead of playing side 1 over & over

Boraph - Too long

Bohemian Rhapsody - It was something like this: o_O
Bicycle Race - I was playing with my ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'' toys... In other words, I just heard it last week!
Don't Stop Me Now - This was on the first Queen CD that I ever bought with my OWN money. It was the HR greatest hits CD from '92. Many a day was wasted just sitting in front of my radio playing it over and over again... I was blown away by Freddie's voice on this track. It was the closest I had come to a religious experience at that point.

Bohemian Rhapsody: This song made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, still does.

Bicycle Race: Lots of fun.

Don't Stop Me Now: I fell in love, to me this song has always been just sheer perfection. No matter what my mood this song always puts me in a better frame of mind.

Bo Rhap (9 years old or so) => my god, this must come straight from heaven. The vocals, the whole opera thing, very tongue in cheek - I didn't know the song was called Bohemian Rhapsody (I thought 'mama' or something like that) and it was a Queen song.

Anyway, it must have been the same period I heard the highlander theme and you don't fool me. I just knew I found 'my band'

Bicycle Race - OMG this could be the absolute best song ever

I was 6 when I heard Bohemian Rhapsody. I didn't speek any English, but I was very moved. I remember I heard it for the first time when my parents and me have just moved from Ukraine to Vienna and from the little bit of money we had, my father bought A Night At The Opera, because he always mentioned it was his youth (imagine 1975 in the USSR!). So it was winter 94' and I heard this amazing CD... I was crying when I heard "Mama, I don't wanna die...". My father did speak some English, he translated this passage to me and told me about the tragical death of Freddie. After this, I started to cry and could't sleep, because I was sooo sad and really in a melancholic mood.
When I started to learn English and heard BoRhap I always imagined a poor boy sitting on a wall and crying, it was rainy and the boy was alone. The opera section did remind me of my numerous opera house visits (my mother is an opera singer).
I saw the original clip only with 15. I thought: "What a beautiful and emotional man..."
But that evening in winter 1994 was my very first experience with Queen, and much more, with a western rock band (in the USSR it was very hard to get this kind of music).

-Bohemian Rhapsody - I was kind of confused! It took a few listens for me to really fall in love with it.
-Bicycle Race - I thought it was catchy, and the lyrics were so fun to sing along to!
-Don't Stop me now - I liked it, it's just one of those songs you immediately like
