⬇️ . 🔸BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY [6/13] . . . SONG FACTS . . . 🔻This got a whole new audience when it was used in the 1992 movie ‘Wayne's World’, starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey. In the film, Wayne and his friends lip-synch to it in his car (the Mirth Mobile), spasmodically head-bobbing at the hard rock section. As a result of the movie, it was re-released as a single in the US and charted at #2 ("Jump" by Kris Kross kept it out of #1). . 🔻In America, this marked a turning point in Queen's legacy. The band's 1982 album Hot Space contained a side of disco-tinged tracks at a time when disco was anathema to rock fans. The album had disappointing sales in the US, and also cost Queen in credibility. Their tour to support the album would be Freddie Mercury's last with Queen in America, and the band was largely forgotten there for the rest of the decade. When Wayne's World revived "Bohemian Rhapsody," American listeners remembered how cool Queen really was, and they the ringing endorsement from Wayne and Garth to back them up. . 🔹”I think we’ll go with a little bohemian rhapsody gentlemen.” . #freddiemercury #farrokhbalsura #brianmay #rogertaylor #johndeacon #80s #queen #queenband #legend #rock #classicrock #music #musician #singer #artist #waynesworld #movie #bohemianrhapsody #comedy #funny #mikemyers
