“Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song and single performed by the British band Queen composed by their singer Freddie Mercury for their fourth studio album released in 1975 “A Night In The Opera”.
The song has a very unusual structure in popular music and more specifically in rock and is more similar to classical rhapsodies, with six different sections, without a chorus, an a cappella part and an operatic segment.
It became a huge commercial success when it came out as a single and stayed at No. 1 on the UK charts for nine weeks. In 1991, after the death of Freddie Mercury, it reached number 1 again.
