I don’t know if such a thing should be ‘ justified ‘, but I can certainly understand it.It is a very special and innovative number, which contains a capella, an opera, a ballad, a guitar solo and a piece of hard rock; It has no refrain and no recurring couplet.
The song actually throws all the conventions in the music world outside, but still the end result is a coherent piece, I think.
If you look at the other high-ranking numbers, you’ll see Smells Like Teen Spirit, a song that’s just about the grunge, and November Rain, a ballad.They are both good songs, but none of these numbers (and the other tracks that follow) are as innovative as Bohemian Rhapsody.
In my view, it is absolutely understandable that Bohemian Rhapsody still scores so high.
I read this question only now, but I find the song absolutely nothing and I found it when it came out.It is a no pop song, but a kitschy patchwork quilt. A good pop song has one groove, one atmosphere and a clear structure. A pop song should be brilliant in its simplicity.
Bohemian Rhapsody is really the kind of song that young people used to convince their parents that pop music can also be very ‘ interesting ‘.People do not realise that this kind of music has ever caused punk. Pop music drove too far away from its simple primitive form.
Queen has made great pop songs, but Bohemian Rhapsody doesn’t belong to that.I think people like it for the same reason as why they love Andr茅 Rieu: Accessible music with a bit of classic pretensions.
When I was young, Jane Birkin et Serge Gainsbourg-Je T’aime,… Moi Non Plus months in the first place.Not really a French chanson.
I’m now more in Musica Latino, but when I search the most streamed song I get out at Camila Cabello-Havana (Official Music VIdeo) ft. Young Thug , commercial English Latin, but at least not so stiff in the hips.
In English I like Whitney Houston-i Wanna Dance With Somebody
Another search delivers Thal铆a, Natti Natasha-No Me Acubria (Video Oficial), a kind of commercial reagaton.She is in any case so showtight that she uses a vocal computer.
Bohemian Rhapsody fits in this list.
Well.You may not find it right, but the number of times it is streamed is simply counted, and is reported to Buma/Stemra. It doesn’t seem to me that you can get around it.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a wonderful song.It has gone through the times. However, there are a lot of wonderful songs. Only B.R. has been in the top 3 of almost all lists since the years 80. And in music, the majority of listeners listen to what everyone listens to. Bohemian Rhapsody has a kind of gravitational force that attracts more and more listeners. It is a kind of black hole in which all new original music disappears. That is of course heavily exaggerated. But if you just suddenly ask someone what the best song ever is, the answer is often B.R. because they can not come to an original thought so quickly.
It is of course an icon, both musical and visual.But there is so music more.
Do you ask me that question?Uncertain Smile from The The.
