Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide. No escape from reality.

Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen is the top-selling song of all time. It was also the first single released from Queen’s then new album titled “A Night at the Opera”.

When it was released no one was sure if Radio Stations would ever play it, since it was a tad over 6 minutes long.

I was lucky to have seen Queen perform live. Memorable performance. That was the best concert that I have ever been to. I had shot that concert on slide film using a Nikon F2, with a legendary (and huge) 50-300mm f4 Nikkor zoom lens.

The BBC in Britain put together a great documentary about the making of Bohemian Rhapsody. It is full of interesting insights. The progrock70s YouTube channel has that BBC Documentary posted. YouTube permits embeding, so I thought that I would do so in this post.

Since the Wayne’s World take on Bohemian Rhapsody was mentioned in the BBC documentary, I decided to make that video easy to find.
