Queen Guitarist Brian May Explains Exactly How Bohemian Rhapsody Was Made: “Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the greatest rock epics of all time. The late Freddie Mercury, legendary rock star, wove together complex harmonies and instrumental layers, from the choral introduction to the head-banging bridge, to build the British band Queen‘s best-known song. And in this behind-the-scenes tour, Queen guitarist Brian May walks us through exactly how it works.

Using the original mix tape for Bohemian Rhapsody, May goes piece-by-piece through the multitude of tracks that made up the song. There’s a bit of a jitter at around the 3 minute mark, but don’t worry, it cleans up. “

30 minutes long but worth it if you’re a fan of the song (and who isn’t?).
