When you think Queen, what’s the first thought that comes to mind? (Well, apart from Freddy’s teeth and those ghastly costumes?)

For most people, it’s the hit “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which won an Ivor Novello award for Best Song of the Decade in London last week.

The Ivors are presented each year by the British Academy of Composers & Songwriters in association with The Performing Rights Society (PRS) to acknowledge and honor Britain’s best songwriters.

Queen picked up two Ivors: one for Outstanding Song Collection, and the other for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” voted Song of the Decade 1975-1984 by the public through BBC Radio 2, the UK’s most listened to radio station.

Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor accepted the award.

Other songs nominated were “Every Breath You Take” by The Police, “Imagine” by John Lennon, “London Calling” by The Clash and “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by Joy Division.
