Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" Voted UK's Favorite #1 Single
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.16.2012



The Official Charts Company reports that Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" has been voted the UK's favorite #1 single, celebrating sixty years of the chart.

The sixty song countdown was completed yesterday.

The song comes from Queen's fourth album, 1975's A Night at the Opera. "Bohemian Rhapsody" hit #1 on November 2, 1975, the band's first ever number one. It was also the first record since Paul Anka's Diana to get nine weeks at the top. It earned over a million sales. It returned to #1 on December 15, 1991 after the death of Freddie Mercury. It sold almost another million copies and was the first and only single to become a Christmas #1 on two separate occasions. It also had #1 in four different years (1975, 1976, 1991 and 1992).

The song is also what led to the modern music video. It was recorded on November 10, 1975 after four hours of filming and five of editing. It cost $5,500 to make and later aired on Top of the Pops on November 20 of that year. When other artists saw how effective a video was, they all began doing it.

Here's the top ten favorite UK #1 singles:

1. Queen - "Bohemian Rhapsody"
2. Michael Jackson - "Billie Jean"
3. Adele - "Someone Like You"
4. Oasis - "Don't Look Back In Anger"
5. The Beatles - "Hey Jude"
6. John Lennon - "Imagine"
7. Britney Spears - "Baby One More Time"
8. Abba - "Dancing Queen"
9. Whitney Houston - "I Will Always Love You"
10. Kylie Minogue - "Can't Get You Out Of My Head"
