In 1975 Freddie Mercury wrote the song “Bohemian Rhapsody” for the British rock band Queen and their album “A Night at the Opera”. It was a huge success, even after Mercury’s death and the UK’s third best-selling single of all time.
The song consists of six parts: an intro, ballad, guitar solo, opera, hard rock and outro. However, there’s a mystery surrounding “Bohemian Rhapsody” and this has to do with its fatalistic lyrics, as the meaning of them is still a secret that has not been revealed by the band.
Some people suggest that the song is self-explanatory describing moments of Mercury’s childhood. Another explanation is that lyrics just fit with the music meaning nothing. Finally, another explanation suggests that this song is influenced by Albert Camus’s novel ‘The Stranger” in which a young man confesses to an impulsive murder and has an epiphany before he is executed, as probable inspiration.
