I grew up with this song. My mom had the record (which I still have now), and my sisters and I would listen to it over and over again, singing along. Listen to “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen and answer the following questions.
(If you’re familiar with the song, please try to eliminate any previous associations and try listening as if you’re hearing it for the very first time)
1. What is your overall response to this song?
2. How do you interpret the story? What is it about? What is happening?
3. How does the music tell the story alongside the words?
