THE NATION'S FAVOURITE QUEEN SONG ... AS IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW ...

So 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is voted The Nation's Favourite Queen Song in an ITV poll (Who do they ask? You? They never ask me!) and nobody is surprised.

And what a song. Although it is engrained in the collective consciousness, every note, every nuance, to the point, perhaps, of having become a caricature of itself, it stands alone, outside time, beyond definition or categorisation, as the most enigmatic, rule-breaking and anti-rock rock song ever composed. 

Who wants to live forever? This song does - and therefore, Freddie does. And does. 

The writing was on the wall before he wrote it.
