Queen’s most iconic song: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ or ‘Somebody to Love’?
"Bohemian Rhapsody" is arguably Queen's most recognizable song to this day. And that's why the song is featured in the Grammy Hall of Fame. It's no shocker that the hit peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 after it was released in late 1975.
Below are some significant lyrics to "Bohemian Rhapsody," per Genius.
🎶 Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality. Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see. I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy. Because I'm easy come, easy go, little high, little low. Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.🎶
While "Somebody to Love" is regarded as having a similar arrangement and melody to "Bohemian Rhapsody," the soulful-rock smash has its own super fans.
In fact, "Somebody to Love" is one of Queen's most covered hits and remains a staple in popular culture. The "Glee" cast performed the song in the first season back in 2009, many "The Voice" and "X-Factor" contestants have given us varying renditions, and famous music artists have tried their hand at covering the song throughout the years.
Below are some notable lyrics to "Somebody to Love," per Genius.
🎶 Each morning I get up I die a little. Can barely stand on my feet. (Take a look at yourself in the mirror and cry) Take a look in the mirror and cry. Lord what you're doing to me. I have spent all my years in believing you. But I just can't get no relief, Lord.🎶
