URN does Bohemian Rhapsody
25th January 2011
It was a dark, cold and windy Friday night. In Tilt in Nottingham, four students known only as Bradders, Alex (mark I and mark II) and Jimbob (real name open to suggestion) decided to cheer up the whole student population with a tune of gigantic, huge and amazing proportions.
On Saturday with the technical genius of Stuart and Martin, and the added extra beautiful singing voice of Scott, a two hour challenge to rewrite the whole song began. To the theme of Jeremy Kyle.
Finally, at 16:00 on Saturday 22nd January, 6 of us crowded into the studio to hear the rewrite. Some say that upon hearing the rewrite, Brian May himself mourned for what could have been for the original. Some say that upon hearing our version, Roger Taylor danced naked around a forest by twilight to the tune of the rewrite. Some say that people mostly just switched off URN for 6 minutes whilst we wailed down the microphones. All I know is, to hear the final result, click on the link.
It is actually beautiful. Enjoy.
And on an unrelated note, if you want to hear this week’s blooper, this week generously donated by the one and only Scott, please listen below…
