Magnum QUEEN Opus ‘BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY’ Topped UK Chart 45 Years Ago Today

9 January 2021

Band: QUEEN

Single: BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
B-side: I’m In Love With My Car

Score: The masterstroke hit the top of the UK singles
chart on 9 January 1976 – 45 years ago today

Producer Roy Thomas Baker recalled years later: “It was totally insane, but we enjoyed every minute of it. It was basically a joke, but a successful joke. [Laughs]. We had to record it in three separate units. We did the whole beginning bit, then the whole middle bit and then the whole end. It was complete madness. The middle part started off being just a couple of seconds, but Freddie kept coming in with more “Galileos” and we kept on adding to the opera section, and it just got bigger and bigger. We never stopped laughing. It started off as a ballad, but the end was heavy.”

Album: A Night At The Opera

Once again, Freddie
