It was forty (not twenty) years ago today. And it wasn't the band being taught to play (by Sgt Pepper or anyone else, for that matter) but the single most original piece of pop ever recorded being released on an unsuspecting public. Yes, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is forty years old. Today.
It's a classic, of course. It's also outrageously high camp, humorous and hugely entertaining. So, in honour of its rather inauspicious birth (or release) here it is, and here's to the next forty years.
