    Apart from English, some other Languages are also used...
    Does anybody know the full meaning and how the song had originated?

      I'm not sure if there's actually any real meaning to it.  I know that it originated out of a music class that Freddie Mercury took in college where he was required to write a piece that encompassed all the various styles/genres of music they'd studied in the class (rock, opera, etc.).

      I heard that It's about a guy who had murdered a person and confessed to his mother about it.

        that's what is sounds like to me.  Plus it mixes opera & rock.

          He says bismillah, which translates to - "In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate".

    Here is a link that explains it;

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian_Rhapsody

    seems it is a parody of rock and Opera. Written in his head, and took three weeks to record.

      yeah i checked out the article... interesting part was when the music increases its intensity and the transition happens to hard rock part

      This explanation which I read most of, is INCREDIBLE, so amazing, I think someone should write a hub on it!
      Freddie was such an amazing talent, Queen is like one of my top 3.

      amazing
