It's my favourite Queen song. Strangely enough, I never get bored of this song. I've over played it litrally to nearly 100 times on repeat. No one knows the story behide the lyrics and it's funny when you get some people claiming they know it all. It's a masterpiece. It's survived 30 years now, and people still love it. Gos to show what a genius Freddie Mercury is.

Yes, truly magnificent. But, no offense to anyone, (Jessie (its_a_hard_life)...please don't kill me...lol) but I wouldn't say, in my opinion, that it is their BEST song. Don't slate me, please. :P...*hides in fear*

It's okay. No need to be scared! We all love Bohemian Rhapsody but some love it more than others. Which is understandable. =)

Let us be honest here, how can you not love 'Bohemian Rhapsody'? It is pure genius!

I personally do not think it is their best song BUT... it is most certainly in my top 2, 3, 4 or 5.

The reason being and I know this is the most common reason, is because I have heard it a zazillion times.

Don't get me wrong, I am not sick of it, the song is timeless but I believe for it to be their best song, it has to mean something personally. 'Bo Rap' is faultless and pure magic. Just like many Queen songs, it is a work of art and I would not argue with anyone who said it is their best song.

For me, the best song that Queen ever did and the best song of all time for that matter, is 'The Show Must Go On'!

The vocals are amazing, the music is excellent and the song means so much to me. It pumps me up, get's me going, makes me emotional and makes me happy! To think of how ill Freddie was and the way he sang it, was breathless!

Hm... Personally, I think "The Millionaire Waltz" is great, and in the same vein as "Bohemian Rhapsody". Also, "Somebody to Love". I don't know who wrote them, but I LOVE "Was it All Worth it ?" which I believe is an absolute confection. And, from the same album, "Chinese Torture" is probably one of the only instrumentals I've ever really liked. Also, "Bijou" is wonderful. "I'm Going Slightly Mad" is one of my all-time favourites... Will I stop, yes - yes I will.



Freddie wrote was it all worth it, and Chinese Torture was intended to be a brian solo track so it's his song, Bijou was mainly freddie, but brian helped him tweak some stuff (I believe) and Im Going Slightly Mad is obviously Freddie. :D

I love Bohemian Rhapsody! It's famous for the opera part but I think the "Mama ooooh" part is incredible! It's just a great song. It's timeless. It was amazing then and it's amazing now. Queen really took a risk combining rock and opera but they did a fantasitc job and no one will ever make another song like it.

It's not my favorite song though but it is a masterpiece.
