A few years ago, we put together an edit mix of different versions of Bohemian Rhapsody as a little Xmas gift for our mailing list.
Since then, I’ve been asked with rather surprising regularity for a list of the featured artists, which I’ve never got round to doing, mainly because I couldn’t remember where the source files were (sorry!). I got asked again t’other day and have actually managed to dig them up, so here, for those of you who are interested, is the list, in order of appearance (although some do appear more than once!).
Queen feat. Extreme (From Freddie Tribute Concert)
Anonymous Answering Machine Message
Monserrat Cabalier & Bruce Dickinson
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The Former Yugoslavia (Dictionaraoke version)
Today FM DJs
Weird Al Yankovic
Unknown (90s smooth soul)
Jeff Scott Soto
Brass Band De Waldsang
California Guitar Trio
Mountain Dew TV Commercial
And here’s a link if you’ve never actually heard it:
Looking back on it now, I’m surprised that we couldn’t find room for the solo accordion version, but there you go. There’s two versions in there that even we don’t know, as they came from untagged mp3s (if you want to play spot the Bo, they happen at 1m09 and 5m50 – Answers on a postcard, thanks).
So now you know :)
