This Is What "Bohemian Rhapsody" Sounds Like On A 110-Year-Old Fairground Organ
Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is widely held to be one of the greatest rock songs of all time, and its sweeping melodies and majestic orchestra arrangements are instantly recognizable to millions of fans of all ages across the world. At the time that it was released in 1975, it was the most expensive single ever made. Although the song was a huge hit, the band met with a lot of resistance from record labels on both sides of the Atlantic over releasing a six-minute single. Here, the classic song finds its way to a very unexpected medium when it is arranged by composer Alexey Rom. This instrument was meant to call attention to itself, and playing this song, it certainly does.
