Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
Get it on
Freddie Mercury on the vocals, amazing lyrics, and it's Queen... Come on guys why is this not number 1?
How this isn't the top of the list just baffles me. This is definitely the best, better than barracuda and smoke on the water. Now Stairway to Heaven could contend, but this would still win.
Best song because it pushes the limits of rock music yet stays within the Universe Of Universal Beauty. Whereas stairway... Is great but not that unique. Thus Queen wins.
There's no contender when it comes to Bohemian Rhapsody. I mean, it's not my FAVORITE song, but I really do still LOVE it like every other Queen song, and it DOES deserve to be Number 1. Or any position higher than '4'. Ugh.
I'd like to thank God for sending Freddie down from heaven.
And, I'd like to say... FREDDIE MERCURY FOREVER! I LOVE YOU, FREDDIE MERCURY!
Stairway wins hands down, but Bohemian Rhapsody easily takes Second. Behind those two songs, there is simply no comparison. The sheer complexity interwoven with the lyrical themes as well as the progressive style make these two songs seem as though God reached down and touched Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and Freddy Mercury for the few moments that they recorded these songs.
Stairway was in fact stolen from "taurus" by spirit. Just consider that before you vote it as the best song ever. And the fact that they took Dazed and Confused as well. Queen took recording to a new height with this song and should be number one. All the vocals, although sounding like a full chorus were in fact only contributed by the band itself. Not bad eh?
I love the song almost above ALL Queen songs. It isn't my favorite, but I love it a lot. But one thing about this list is that most of it is the most popular. Like the person from Facebook had said, popular doesn't mean greatest. And it's also all a matter of opinion!
I love this song! Love it! Don't you? This should be the top song ever played of classic rock. The best vocals ever. What do you think about it? What do you thing the best of the group is? I am not sure. VOTE THIS! VOTE THIS! VOTE THIS! AWESOME SONG EVER RIGHT HERE!
The artistry in this song and the variation in the sounds found in this song along with the fact that Queen is a great band make this awesome! All the songs on this list are great with great bands, but the top of the list is reserved for classic rock royalty.
Queen - The princes of rock and roll... Man they just did the best that was ever done, Freddy, Brian, Rodger, John just had something that cannot be duplicated. There are other great songs but Bohemian Rhapsody is the anthem to the mordern day rock...
Its the most awesome rock song I've ever herd in my whole entire life. I would strongly recommend this to maybe hmm... Any one in the whole entire world that has ears that work properly and to people that actually know epic music when they hear it!
No other song combines styles so perfectly. The way it changes, but is still so balanced, is magnificent. Queen could pull off nearly any genre of music beautifully. That's the reason that they are still so popular.
I understand, nothing beats Stairway, but this should be a close No. 2. This is one of the most unique songs ever and it deserves more respect. Stairway is great too, but it's so overplayed I can't stand it anymore.
Are You KIDDING ME? No way Can Heart Or Smoke On The Water Contend With The awesomenes that is Bohemian Rhapsody. This song deserves Rank 2 behind only Stairway to heaven...
This is song is the best. It's Queen's masterpiece, and truly unique from other rock songs of its time. The composition of the song is so complex, but all together, Bohemian Rhapsody is simply amazing.
This song is very intricate and touching! Awesome! Queen is one of the best in addition to Heart, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Journey, the Police, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Rolling Stones...
Love, Love, Love this song. This was the Queen song I grew up with, well growing up with, I'm only 13 and this song has taught me so much about good music, good singing, and general awesomeness.
This song is by far the best classic rock song in my opinion. It has amazing vocals and the style is just so unique and intriguing. It's impossible to listen to this and not want to sing along!
The voice behind Bo-Rhap is easily number 1, thus making this number 1. BOHEMIAN WINS! You know what would be really cool? If this was our national anthem. Then, everyone would know it.
The most beautiful song ever made! This is that state of the art, only Freddie "The God Of Music" Mercury could write a song like this... Only Freddie!
THE best song! Not only is there amazing vocals but the instrumentals are beyond phenomenal! A classic rock musical masterpiece that should be number one.
I love this song, possibly one of my favorite songs ever. Gotta love queen. The piano in this song is amazing, as is Freddie Mercury. RIP Freddie x
In this song has something for everybody...
Rock n roll part
And even choir part It must be no1
My favorite classic rock song of all time. You have no idea how many times this song has been stuck in my head!
Make it to the top! Wot, QUEEN for the win. They will be on the top, can't believe it isn't on the top already.
