6 killer Queen videos to watch to prepare for Bohemian Rhapsody

2 of 2

“Another One Bites the Dust”

Although Queen started out in the ’70s, ’80s Queen is almost as iconic for songs like “Another One Bites the Dust.” You can see an evolution in Mercury’s performance style here — and it’s completely different from other songs on this list.

But there was no way that Bohemian Rhapsody could avoid the mustache, and it looks like actor Rami Malek has it pretty down in the trailer.

For even more fun, try and pick out how many different colored hats Mercury wears in this video, although they all have the same style.

“We Will Rock You”

Does it matter that it is cold?

Not to Queen, it doesn’t.

For a band that’s always been known for its showmanship, this is a devastatingly simple video, featuring these four guys out in the snow, stomping and clapping out what’s now an iconic rhythm and beat. We dare you not to sing along with it.

“Somebody to Love”

Just as Bohemian Rhapsody has already shown it’s willing to get in the studio and show how Queen made all of its iconic songs, the video for “Somebody to Love” shows the making of the song itself. Just check out how many cups are littered around the studio and how the water shakes in the glass on the piano Mercury’s playing. Just like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” though, it does cut to on-stage performances. Just check out those sleeves Brian May is rocking!

And while the last notes from Mercury are stellar, it’s kind of great to watch all four members of Queen — Mercury, May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon — work together on the vocals, as in “Bohemian Rhapsody” and plenty of other songs.
