On a global scale, many of us are now stuck in quarantine but the great thing is – we’re getting creative about it. We had some great My Sharona parodies to wash your hands by and now we have a classy version of Bohemian Rhapsody called Coronavirus Rhapsody.
Dana Jay Bein, a comedian from Cambridge, MA, USA, rewrote the words to Queen’s famous Bohemian Rhapsody, dubbing it Coronavirus Rhapsody.
He started out on Twitter saying: “I’ve lost my mind. I wrote Coronavirus Rhapsody: is this a sore throat, is this just allergies? Caught in a lockdown no escape from reality…”
The Internet approved and more than half a million people have already liked the tweet. Some fans have taken it a step further, setting Bein’s words to music. And so we have this video above, with the lyrics by Dana Jay Bein, vocals by Adrian Grimes and the music by Queen!
