Here is a list of the end of 2006 both Virgin Radio and Q Magazine compiled lists of the ‘best ever’ singles based on votes from their listeners / readers. From this list we see that Queen was voted best single by their listeners/ readers.
What was unique about the song Queen was that the song has “no chorus, instead consisting of four main parts: a ballad segment ending with a guitar solo, an operatic passage, and a hard rock section.
At the time, it was the most expensive single ever made and remains one of the most elaborate recordings in popular music history”. – Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian_Rhapsody
Looking at the list, we could say that the voters, like songs that stand out from the rest of the ‘general’ music (this is like today’s music for example ‘Gangnam Style’)
This research will impact on my final product as will allow me to understand what was unique about these videos. Finding whats unique about these videos will help me to put something unique in my music video.
