The enduring cultural fascination with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody

Raymond Chen

Bohemian Rhapsody was not part of my world growing up, so I view the continuing cultural fascination with the piece with detached confusion.

The hallmark of cultural preoccupation is the fact that the Wikipedia entry deconstructs the piece moment by moment, clocking in at over 2000 words, far in excess of the Wikipedia recommendation of a 60-word summary for a 6-minute piece (10 words per minute). And longer than the entire Wikipedia page for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
