Musical Interlude: Bohemian Rhapsody (1975)

A new generation of fans discovered Queen's 1975 opus, "Bohemian Rhapsody", by way of the 1992 movie, "Wayne's World". You might recall the scene early in the movie where Wayne (Mike Myers) & Garth (Dana Carvey) and some of their friends are lip-synching the song while riding one night.

As a result, the original video Queen had produced 17 years earlier resurfaced and was given heavy airplay.

It wasn't so long ago I had uncovered a cover recorded by the Muppets. Now, a new version has been released, a cover recorded by Panic at the Disco for the movie, "Suicide Squad". Could've fooled me. Thought it was the original being used in the commercials and trailers......
