In honour of our splendid exhibition, Bohemian Melbourne, currently on show in the Murdoch Gallery until 22 February (you’d be mad to miss it!), here’s Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen in just a few of the multitudinous versions available on our music databases. You can enjoy them here at the Library, or from home if you’re one of our Victorian registered members; oh mama mia, mama mia!
For those who didn’t think the original was symphonic enough!
How many tenors does it take to fill Freddie Mercury’s vocal chords?
A surprisingly effective arrangement by the marvellous Benaud Trio.
A somewhat restrained brass band rendition; nothing to scare the horses here.
More rhapsody than bohemian, I’d say…..
The lads themselves; enough said!
Any other versions we should know about?
