In another thread which I didn't want to derail...

Imagine if Queen had called the new film 'Innuendo' instead of 'Bohemian Rhapsody'?


Which made me laugh and also think, both about how the movie would been interpreted with another title and also if another title would have made the movie different.

So, for instance, You're My Best Friend would be a different movie than Great King Rat.

I'm surprised it wasn't called WWRY.

Aye that's what I thought. Bo Rhap is such a weird name for it. I guess they should've played up the early hippyish days for it to fit.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the title, obviously plays a roll in selling the film.

Queen could have called the movie something else, something serious.

Listen, when Freddie died, a news reporter on television had said that his last album was ‘ironically titled ‘Innuendo’’ and I thought that in that perspective, the title fit so well in more ways than one.

It didn't. It really didn't. But it was always going to be thread that gave opportunity for some puns and sarcasm.
