Bohemian Rhapsody in 42 Styles

Bohemian Rhapsody in 42 Styles

While Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs can’t quite reach the vocal heights of Freddie Mercury (or Marc Martel), his ability to mimic various musical styles is still quite a talent. Here, he sings Queen’s most iconic tune in three and half dozen ways.

Bohemian Rhapsody on 28 Trombones

Bohemian Rhapsody on 28 Trombones

Trombone player Christopher Bill and 27 of his closest friends joined together at the 2018 International Trombone Fest perform the richest and most layered cover of Queen’s classic rock opera that we’ve ever heard. Galileo, Figaro! Magnifico!

Bohemian Rhapsody: Kids’ Edition

Bohemian Rhapsody: Kids’ Edition

This extended ad spot for UK retailers John Lewis & Partners + Waitrose & Partners is proof positive that commercials are so much better outside of the US, as a choir of kids perform a slightly modified version of Queen’s classic while performing a charming space opera.

Bohemian Rhapsody (Trailer)

Bohemian Rhapsody (Trailer)

The first full trailer for the upcoming Queen biopic looks sure looks solid, with the role of Freddie Mercury in the very capable hands of Rami Malek, and the story taking us from the earliest days of the band, through its meteoric rise, to the tragic decline of one of its frontman.

Bohemian Rhapsody (Teaser)

Bohemian Rhapsody (Teaser)

Despite the behind-the-scenes drama, our first look at the Queen biopic looks really promising, with Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek truly transforming himself into the persona of lead singer Freddie Mercury, and a soundtrack filled with some of the greatest songs of all time.

Melodican Rhapsody

Melodican Rhapsody

Tristan Clarke and Joe Buono aka The Melodica Men present a fun full-length cover of Queen’s classic rock opera Bohemian Rhapsody, doing the fandango, thunderbolt and lightning on their silly mouth-blown instruments.

Somebody to Love on the Subway

Somebody to Love on the Subway

The musicians of Apartment Sessions turn in an energetic rendition of Queen’s 1976 classic Somebody to Love, as performed in the cozy confines of a New York City subway car. While nobody will ever sing like Freddie Mercury, they make up for it with sheer enthusiasm.

German Rhapsody

German Rhapsody

Back in 2010, musicians P.B. and M.D. took the time to translate and painstakingly line up the lyrics of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody into their native tongue of German. You don’t have to spreche ein bisschen Deutsch to enjoy their energetic performance.

Don’t Stop Me Now: Only Freddie

Don’t Stop Me Now: Only Freddie

We never had a doubt that Freddie Mercury was the greatest rock vocalist ever, but if you need any convincing, listen to this isolated version of his lead vocals from Don’t Stop Me Now. It’s a much more somber track without the chorus and instruments, but still incredibly powerful.

Peter Bence: Don’t Stop Me Now

Peter Bence: Don’t Stop Me Now

Watch piano virtuoso Peter Bence as his fingers fly across the keys of his Steinway in this amazing arrangement of Queen’s 1978 classic Don’t Stop Me Now, with a tiny bit of Bohemian Rhapsody thrown in for good measure. Sheet music available here if you can keep up.

A Metal One Bites the Dust

A Metal One Bites the Dust

For his latest arrangement, musician Leo Moracchioli takes on Queen’s 1980 rock anthem Another One Bites the Dust, covering it in a delicious metal coating, and tossing in a couple of unconventional instruments for bonus fun.

All Dead, All Dead (Hybrid Version)

All Dead, All Dead (Hybrid Version)

A fantastic new remix of the classic Queen track All Dead, All Dead, created from a raw session of Freddie Mercury’s lead vocals – which didn’t appear on the album – and the instrumentation from 1977’s News of the World. Pre-order the amazing 40th anniversary box set now.

Puddles: Under Pressure/Let It Go

Puddles: Under Pressure/Let It Go

Like many of us, Puddles Pity Party has the occasional bad day. The sad clown with the golden voice works out his stress with a little pie, some cupcakes, and a impassioned cover smoosh-up of Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure, and Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen.

Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-along

Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-along

We can only imagine that Freddie Mercury was looking down with a big grin on his face at the crowd at this Green Day concert at London’s Hyde Park, as over 65,000 fans joined together in harmony to sing the Queen rock opera classic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Killer Queen: Organ Cover

Killer Queen: Organ Cover

Following up on his hit performance of Bohemian Rhapsody on a 100+ year old fairground organ, YouTuber Alexey Rom is back with another Queen tune played on an instrument that predates the band by seven decades. They’re taking requests now.

George Michael: Somebody to Love

George Michael: Somebody to Love

We can think of no more fitting tribute to the late George Michael than this incredible performance of Queen’s Somebody to Love that he sang in tribute to another great musician taken from us far too soon.

We Will Rock You Fast

We Will Rock You Fast

Queen’s 1977 classic We Will Rock You is one of rock and roll’s (and sports’) greatest anthems. So the idea of a cover version is kind of sacrilege. But we’ll give this 1981 version a pass, since it was recorded by Queen themselves, and gives the song a whole different flavor.

Don’t Stop Me Fallout 4

Don’t Stop Me Fallout 4

(Gore) Joey van Embden created this fan tribute to Fallout 4 using a combination of in-game footage set to the uplifting 1978 Queen track Don’t Stop Me Now. Bethesda should really use this as a commercial.

Google Translate Rhapsody

Google Translate Rhapsody

Malinda Kathleen Reese decided to take the lyrics of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, then poured them through Google Translate several times, and sang the nonsensical new words. We’re guessing this is how Bad Lip Reading makes up their scripts.

Billy Watman: Bohemian Rhapsody

Billy Watman: Bohemian Rhapsody

Guitarist Billy Watman turns in a fingerstyle rendition of Queen’s magnum opus which would be impressive if played by anyone, but it’s even more amazing that he’s just 14 years old and can play like this. More on Billy’s YouTube page. (Video by Tony Goode)
