Bohemian Rhapsody

Let's face it. The rock anthem "Bohemian Rhapsody" is not like other rock anthems of its time, and neither is Queen, the band that performed it. Especially Freddy Mercury, the singer-songwriter who wrote it. Dominated by an adept performance by Rami Malek as the late Mercury, the film "Bohemian Rhapsody" gives us a seriously cleaned up version of how different the band is and Mercury was. Mercury was a flamboyant showman, from his first performance auditioning in an alley after a band member decides to exit. Once Freddy is on board their fortunes rise. The most enjoyable parts of the film, aside from Malek's performance, were the parts detailing the band's creative process and camaraderie when creating the "A Night at the Opera" and ascent to stardom and the inevitable descent. Some are right to criticize the heavy emphasis on Mercury's romantic relationship with a woman while downplaying how much this man was a gay icon in a milieu that emphasized the opposite. Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon themselves are interesting on their own, but you only get a couple of sentences detailing the fact that one is a Ph.D. holding astrophysicist, one a dentist and the other an engineer. This film couldn't be bothered to tell you that — it seems they just wanted to get to the music, and that in itself, made it pretty watchable alone because it will rock you!

Pentatonix released an all-new EP today titled “PTX Vol. 4 — Classics” in addition to dropping a music video for their cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody."

The music video alone is highly entertaining, but the group's awesome vocal renditions of the instrumental sounds that so many of us know from the original make this truly a great song cover!
