Song Of The Week: 16/08/09

songweekThis week I’ve decided to go a bit oldie with my selection. This song is an extremely highly rated song and it fully deserves its title as one of most original and inspiring songs ever written.


This Week’s RHP ‘Song Of The Week’

Bohemian Rhapsody

by Queen

There’s no denying the greatness of this song. It may not be to everyone’s taste perhaps, but it was so truly different and imaginative when it cam out in 1975. I couldn’t imagine any bands who regularly make it in the charts crafting such an amazing tune nowadays. It’s a song that dares to be different and succeeds. The video is also a joy to watch and really shaped the way music videos are made today.

One of the reasons I’ve chosen this song is due to my recent rediscovering of it through SingStar. Even though IBand_queen2 am quite rubbish at it, it’s such a fun song to sing away to. It’s also s widely known that everyone can join in with. Not many songs in this modern day and age have the long-last appeal that this does.

I’m also pleased to champion Queen as a band. I honestly feel they are the best Rock band to ever walk this earth. And that doesn’t necessarrily mean they’ve written my favorite songs, but they’re so well remembered and did so many different things which have become standard to music these days. They truly were a legendary band.

So yes it may be played alot and it may be an unoriginal choice, but Bohemian Rhapsody really is one of those ‘great’ songs and thoroughly deserves to be this week’s ‘Song Of The Week’.
