“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” Queen’s magnum opus this year celebrates it’s 40th anniversary. At the time it was released ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was the most expensive single ever made, and at nearly six minutes long it still holds the record for longest song ever to make it to number one. It has been Christmas number 1 twice and is the UK’s third best selling single of all time. Although at the time of the release it was considered too long and too bizarre for radio airplay, today it is considered one of the finest songs ever written.
