How Much Do You Know? – Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

This article was dedicated to the family of the late Freddie Mercury

Hello everyone! Our new segment ‘How Much Do You Know?‘ was launched.

This month, we talked about Bohemian Rhapsody to learn more about Queen and their music as well as the compilation playlist on Spotify. Released in October 2018, the film itself focuses on Queen’s formative years and the period leading up to the celebrated performance at the 1985 Live Aid concert. It has grossed over $700 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing musical biographical film of all time. Critically, it received mixed reviews, with Rami Malek‘s portrayal of Freddie Mercury lauded more than the rest of the film and cast. While the Live Aid segment was praised, criticism came from not exploring more complex themes involving Mercury, with the New York Post’s Johnny Oleksinski stating, “What we ultimately wanted from Bohemian Rhapsody was not carbon-copied concerts, but behind-closed-doors insight into a deeply private, complicated, internationally beloved superstar.” In addition, the song itself re-entered the US Billboard Hot 100 for the third time (having previously charted in 1976 and 1992), charting at number 33 on 12 November 2018.

The playlist can be heard here:

In memory of: Eduard Khil (4 September 1934 – 4 June 2012)

In memory of: Eduard Khil [Эдуард Анатольевич Хиль] (4 September 1934 – 4 June 2012)
4th June marks the 6th Anniversary of the Trololo guy’s passing in St. Petersburg and that month was 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, as Qatar Airways is best known to fly there starting 19 December 2017.

We look back to one of his songs like “I am very glad, because I’m finally returning back home” (that’s “Я очень рад, потому что я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой” in Russian; and listen to it on Spotify). But while Deadpool 2 is still in cinemas, they’ll never understand to be the same.

Our thoughts goes out to the family of Eduard Khil.
