Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody has made the Guiness Book of Records list of the biggest hits of the 20th Century.'Bohemian Rhapsody', is placed at number 5, with Frankie Goes to Hollywoods 'Relax' at number 1.
This chart takes into account every Top 40 since "Top of the Pops" (TOTP - a prominent UK music video show) first started, way back in 1964. Songs are ranked according to their length of time and position in the chart. A song is given 40 points for 1 week at No.1, 39 points for a No.2 and so on.
Number 5 for 'Bo Rhap' is obviously not the number 1 it usually attains. In this instance it can be attributed to the way that the single is scored. It is the second largest selling single in the UK, after Elton John's tribute to Princess Diana.
