Im really sick of the media making this song a focal point in queen's history. I like the song, but all of this expusure, make me not want to listen to it for a long time.

it is a great song but many other great songs can be found: some have lyrics full of meaning, other great music...Bo Rhap is a masterpiece but, you cannot sum up Queen to that...it's tiring if you only remember this song when you wanna talk about their glory

I must admit i agree. Although i love the song to death and it is A SHEER MASTERPIECE, theres no disputes on that from what i can see.
It is a very definitive track for Queen in terms of success, musicianship and writing.
But if people would look at their earlier work, such as MY FAIRY KING, MARCH OF THE BLACK QUEEN etc, you can see that type of thing going on in Bo Rhap.
I mean there are no words really to describe the song. But theres so many other greats as well.
And i think its kind of ignorant in a way that people only want to see that as the ONE thing about Queen... There are so many aspects of this great band that need to be explored. Bo Rhap is a huge part of that experience yes. But it should just be the thing that maybe opens the floodgates for everything else they have going on.
But it is a good place to start some newbies on their way to Queen fandom, ill say that much.

maybe people make it out to be an essential point in Queen's history because it WAS.

It saved them. It was make or break. And it was the biggest song they ever did, basically.

This is true. Thats something thats indesputable...

But my point is that There are so many other dimensions to this group that people need to discuss and look at as well. Other sheer masterpieces...
Just look at Queen II, theres a lot of awesome awesome tracks on that album. But its often overlooked...

I totally agree. I love bo rhap...but i must admit, it is getting quite annoying. it is everywhere. I dont like how people base their opinions on Queen by listening to Bo Rhap. They dont dig deeper, and find other wonderful songs to listen to. Like for ex...I would say Was It All Worth and The Miracle...are as good as Bo Rhap...so is Show Must Go On. and they are somewhat ignored...am i making any sense at all? it is as if, all of Queen;s glory is held on the Bohemian Rhapsody!!!

What the fuck are you on about? Did I ever mention Nirvana on this thread? No... So why did you write "Nirvana sucks!"

Get a brain.

I would have to disagree on this just a little bit though...

I mean, its not always bohemian rhapsody, you also have we are the champions/we will rock you, another one bites the dust, crazy little thing called love, under pressure that people use more often than Bohemian rhapsody

Brian: No, You Can't...

Yes, I agree with you on this point too, we are the champions and we will rock you etc. is played over and over and over and over and OMG!! It sometimes gets annoying!

Bo Rhap is one of my many Queen favorites. But perhaps it is a bit overplayed. I do agree there are so many other great Queen songs around. In defense of 'Bo Rhap', it has a timeless "uniqueness" to it that prevents me from getting sick of it. To me, it's a operetic ballad with an ingenious mix of classical and rock musical styles. The fact that it's so different, makes it appealing.
