Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" has inspired many inventive cover versions throughout the years. But have you ever heard the 1975 rock hit played on a fairground organ that's over 100 years old?
If you haven't — and we're only guessing you haven't — prepare to be blown away. In a YouTube video, the Freddie Mercury-sung classic rock staple gets transfigured into booming tones from a giant pneumatic organ constructed in 1905 by the French instrument maker Charles Marenghi & Cie. It sounds like an ethereal mix of the beloved English rockers and some old-timey fair attraction.
