The Story:

After the massive success of the album A Night at the Opera and its hit single "Bohemian Rhapsody",
Queen went into the studio to record a follow-up. The result was the soulful "Somebody To Love",
which went to #2 upon its release. The song was re-released in 1993 after the Freddie Tribute Concert,
where Queen preformed it live with singer George Michael. It then went to #1 for three weeks.
