Queen Celebrate 'Bohemian Rhapsody' 40th Anniversary With Covers

(Radio.com) If the world wasn't already replete with covers of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," the song's 40th anniversary shouldn't slow production. The band itself released two covers via its official YouTube channel: one by the Trinity Boys Choir and the other by the Royal Academy of Music Quartet.

The choral version hits every peak of Freddy Mercury's falsetto--though who but a choir of children could do that? Meanwhile, the strings arrangement mines the song's drama and melodic intricacies.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" was released in October 1975 and has gone on to become one of the most inspiring and iconic records of its time. This year, fans and current band members celebrated the track's four decades on the airwaves.

Watch both Queen-certified covers here.
