At dinner this evening, when the topic of music was broached, one of our companions averred that Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” was her all-time favorite song.
I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this confession.
There is no denying Bo-Rhap’s popularity. Goofy as it is, it’s one of the U.K.’s all-time top selling singles, and it hasn’t done too bad here in the States, either. But I think of it more as a guilty pleasure, if pleasure it is.
Hmmm, I said to myself. What other song is really long, comprising a mishmash of tempos and styles, with completely ridiculous lyrics? Say, I know!
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is the “MacArthur Park” of glam metal!
