It's not that Bill is rebelling against hit/classic rock.  He's promoting music that deserves airplay.  Often the "classics" are deserving of airplay, even if you can hear them elsewhere.  For people like me who avoid terrestrial radio whenever possible, it's nice to hear a great old song thrown in with the new ones.

The regular version of this song no longer does it for me. I prefer the derivations!

Seconded; a great song that I never need to hear again.
Now 10cc, I could think of lots of their tunes I'd like to hear!

 Freddie Mercury's birth name is Farrokh Bulsara. He really liked those brits... why are they actively preventing further gems like him?

Great Queen song, but if you like BR, there are some others worth giving a listen to which are no less outstanding:
Millionaire Waltz (A Day AT The Races)
March Of The Black Queen (Queen II)

You Take My Breath Away (A Day At The Races - not as layered, but immeasurably tender).

I love this song and album, I just wish they would play more stuff from their first three albums. Their best stuff and their live shows from this period were epic. Most people only know their stuff from the 80's. They earned their chops on the road playing live. Just a suggestion, watch the blue ray offering of live at the Rainbow from 1974 or their live from the Hammersmith Odeon in 75. The boys put on some shows.

Saw a bit with Brian May on the anniversary of the album an he  said Freddy basically had most of it in his head when they recorded it.

Too bad Freddy went so yearly imagine the stuff he still had in him.

Bombastic. Ballsy. Brilliant. Opera and rock as a hybrid? One of the very few songs that's been played to death on the dinosaur of FM radio and not spur one to flip the channel mumbling wtf.
