Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody 'Beyond Analysis' Says May

(Classic Rock) Brian May says that he has never grown tired of classic Queen track Bohemian Rhapsody - but he doesn't like talking about what he believes the song is about.

The Freddie Mercury composition was released on October 31, 1975, and went on to become the third biggest-selling single in UK chart history. It's been the subject of several affectionate spoofs, including the iconic scene in 1992 movie Wayne's World.

May tells the BBC: "I'm not sick of it. You can't complain that people want to talk about it all these years later. I still enjoy hearing it - if it comes on the radio I'll turn it up and listen. But no air guitar. I'm too old."

He adds: "I do think Freddie enjoyed the fact there were so many interpretations of the lyrics. It's an outlandish song. I think it's beyond analysis." Read more here.
