Forget arguing about what songs should have been number 1. The fact that the British voted #1 the song I perhaps despise more than any other by an artist that I liked at one point in time - I loved, really LOVED the first Queen album - makes "Bohemian Rhapsody" the greatest DISAPPOINTMENT ever slapped on vinyl (or PVC, or whatever toxic crud they make CD's out of) of ALL TIME. There was no way to ever take Queen seriously again after that song - which was okay because the group pretty well sucked ass from that point on anyway - but I remember the sick feeling in my stomach when that melted poodle puke dribbled out of my friend's stereo. I had to go take a nap, and I had really bad dreams. Now I can never take a whole country seriously again. This is a black, black day.
And now it is again.
