Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
When Freddie Mercury wrote “Bohemian Rhapsody,” was he aware that he was making history and creating an epic masterpiece at that? Probably yes but still, we find ourselves getting surprised with how creative people can get when it comes to their own rendition of this classic. Maybe you think you’ve heard every single cover version out there but what if we tell you someone played it on a 100-year old organ. Yes, you read that right.
“Mercury intended … [this song] to be a ‘mock opera’, something outside the norm of rock songs, and it does follow a certain operatic logic: choruses of multi-tracked voices alternate with aria-like solos, the emotions are excessive, the plot confusing.” – Judith Peraino
It sounds incredible and we bet Freddie Mercury would be impressed. It would be a wonderful experience to see and hear this in person!
