''Number #5, ''Bohemian Rhapsody-Queen''

''The middle section got longer and longer and longer'', recalled Freddie Mercury. ''We were all in hysterics.'' Indeed, in October 1975, Queen were only moderately successful and their record company were appalled at the intention to release this six minute opera/ballad/glam rock, tour de force as a single. Little did they know how much Britain loves camp and pomp. Three weeks to record; a lifetime in the history books.''



''Know It All: It's the only single ever to reach Number #1 twice in the same version.''
