1975, Music: “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Queen)

On 31 October 1975 the British rock band Queen released the single "Bohemian Rhapsody". The song was written by Freddie Mercury for 1975 album "A Night at the Opera". It was produced by Roy Thomas Baker. Recording began on 24 August 1975, band members May, Mercury, and Taylor sang their vocal parts continually for approximately ten hours a day.

The entire song took three weeks to record, and in some sections featured 180 separate overdubs. The song can be divided in six sections: introduction, ballad, guitar solo, opera, hard rock and finale. The sudden changes in style were at that moment unusual in popular music.
