Bohemian Rhapsody

Genre: Pop; Producer (group): Atlantic, Big Beat

With pop-music nostalgia fever running high, someone was bound to revamp Queen’s 1976 operatic masterpiece. Rather than simply underscoring a carbon copy of a beloved classic with a hip-hop swing (à la Fugees on ”Killing Me Softly With His Song”), the Braids try something new. Stripping ”Bohemian Rhapsody” down to an insistent shuffle beat, assorted piano fills, and soulful vocals, they create a sound so moving that you might want to reach out and hug the speakers. B
