Weekend Fun: Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody

The Muppets are classic and if you like Queen, then you are sure to enjoy this. The interesting thing though, and the point of this, will be to see what a very 21st century medium, does for this song.Originally recorded in the 70s it was a massive hit, which has been largely attributed to the ground breaking, first really significant, specifically produced music video.

Weekend Fun: Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody
The Muppets are classic and if you like Queen, then you are sure to enjoy this. The interesting thing though, and the point of this, will be to see what a very 21st century medium, does for this song.

Originally recorded in the 70s it was a massive hit, which has been largely attributed to the ground breaking, first really significant, specifically produced music video.



In the early 90s it became a huge hit again, particularly in America where Queen had only had limited success, and with a new, younger audience, when it was featured in the film Wayne’s World.

 

And now, 17 years later, it is on YouTube with the Muppets. As of now, in a little over 10 days, it’s had over eight million hits and it has nearly 42,500 ratings!

Will we see the song charging back up the charts? Wouldn’t bet against it. Queen was always well known as being very intellectually and academically clever: Brian May has a PhD in Astrophysics, Roger Taylor went to university to train as a dentist, John Deacon got a first class honours degree in Electronics. So one wonders whether they have just identified another medium to deliver a new version of their song to another generation?

The late, great Freddie Mercury was more on the artistic side, graduating from Ealing College (a particularly fantastic college by the way……) with a diploma in art and graphic design. Previously, of course, Freddie had been schooled in Bombay, St Peter’s and St Margaret’s.

This is the story on the Telegraph where you can read about the Muppets’ version.
