“Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was written by Freddie Mercury for the band’s 1975 album A Night at the Opera.
It is a six-minute suite, consisting of several sections without a chorus: an intro, a ballad segment, an operatic passage, a hard rock part and a reflective coda.
The song is a more accessible take on the 1970’s progressive rock genre. It was reportedly the most expensive single ever made at the time of its release, though the exact cost of production cannot be determined.

Pentatonix is named after the pentatonic scale, a musical scale or mode with five notes per octave.
Pentatonix makes the varsity squad with ‘Cheerleader’ cover
The singers of Pentatonix have more than a billion views of their a cappella covers and other performances on their YouTube channel. But they may have outdone themselves with their version of Jamaican singer OMI’s summertime smash, Cheerleader. The group’s latest video features the five members wearing letterman hoodies — with “PTX” emblazoned on them, natch — and crooning away in a gym.
The group’s also getting fans fired up for new music: At the end of the video, after the credits roll, the screen goes black except for text that reads “Can’t Sleep Love #Soon.” Since Can’t Sleep Love is an unreleased song the quintet has been performing while on tour with the newly pregnant Kelly Clarkson, can new music be far away?
Pentatonix (or PTX) is an American a cappella group consisting of five vocalists originating from Arlington, Texas. Their work, which is mostly in the pop style, consists of covers of existing songs, sometimes in the form of medleys, along with original material. Their music is defined by their own arrangement style, tight vocal harmonies, extensive vocal riffing, deep and steady vocal bassl ines, and a diverse range of vocal percussion and beat boxing.

Pentatonix Covers Daft Punk Hits in Stunning A Cappella Medley
Pentatonix, the a cappella group that recently brought us a beautiful rendering of Beyonce’s greatest hits, has set its sights on the French electronic duo Daft Punk.
In a little over four minutes, Pentatonix’ new medley covers an impressive array of Daft Punk hits, including “Get Lucky,” Celebrate,” “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and “One More Time.”
Angelika, is my oldest grand-daughter, you may have seen her here a few times. She just turned 10 years old this month.
She loves music, as much as I do. She’s been keeping me up to date with some of the new songs that are coming out. She knows the songs but doesn’t know the performer most of the time. I’ve trying to teach her it’s important to also know who is singing. Very frequently, we use the “Shazam” app to identify the singer/band.
Last night, we were looking at a YouTube video by Pentatonix that she had found on her own. Her music teacher at school showed the class another one of their videos. And we went searching!
As we were browsing and trolling through YouTube, we found this one. Both of us were enthralled by the presentation, the colors, the talent.
The five singers of Pentatonix — Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola — have won the third season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” and have released several medley covers of popular songs since.
This latest single, titled simply “Daft Punk,” coincides with the release of their new album, PTX, Vol. 2.

Academy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock is known for her roles in such films as Speed, While You Were Sleeping, The Proposal and The Blind Side.
Born July 26, 1964, in Arlington, Virginia, Sandra Bullock made her first stage appearance at age 5 in an opera in Germany. She first became widely known for her role in the 1994 hit Speed. She has since starred in many more films, and won an Academy Award for Best Actress and a Golden Globe for her performance in The Blind Side (2009), based on the true-life story of football player Michael Oher. In 2013, she starred alongside George Clooney in the critically acclaimed film Gravity. She was named Entertainer of the Year by Entertainment Weekly in both 2009 and 2013.
In 2007, she was ranked as the 14th richest woman in the entertainment industry with an estimated fortune of $85 million. In 2009, Bullock starred in two of the more financially successful films of her career, The Proposal and The Blind Side. Bullock was awarded the BFCA Award, SAG Award, Golden Globe Award, and the Academy Award for her leading role as Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side.
She is listed in the 2012 edition of Guinness World Records as the highest-paid actress, with $56 million. In 2013, she starred in The Heat, financially the most successful comedy of the year at the domestic box office, and the science fiction thriller Gravity. As one of the highest grossing films of the year, Gravity is Bullock’s most successful film critically and commercially.
For her role in it, Bullock was nominated a second time for the Academy Award for Best Actress, along with the BFCA, Golden Globe and SAG awards and also received her first BAFTA nomination.
Bullock was born in Arlington, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C. Her father, John W. Bullock (born 1925), was a United States Army employee and part-time voice coach; her mother, Helga Mathilde Meyer (1942–2000), was an opera singer and voice teacher.
Bullock’s father was from Birmingham, Alabama, and had English, Irish, German, and French ancestry, while Bullock’s mother was German. Bullock’s maternal grandfather was a rocket scientist from Nuremberg, Germany. Bullock’s father, then in charge of the Army’s Military Postal Service in Europe, was stationed in Nuremberg when he met his wife.
They married in Germany and moved to Arlington, where John worked with the Army Materiel Command, before becoming a contractor for The Pentagon. She has a younger sister, Gesine Bullock-Prado, who was formerly the vice-president of Bullock’s production company Fortis Films.
Bullock was raised in Nuremberg, Germany for twelve years and grew up speaking German. She attended the humanistic Waldorf School. As a child, Bullock frequently accompanied her mother on European opera tours. Bullock studied ballet and vocal arts as a child, taking small parts in her mother’s opera productions. She sang in the opera’s children’s choir at the Staatstheater Nürnberg.
The scar above her left eye was caused when she fell into a creek as a child. Bullock attended Washington-Lee High School, where she was a cheerleader and performed in high school theater productions.
After graduating in 1982, she attended East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, where she received a degree in drama in 1986. She then moved to Manhattan and supported herself as a bartender, cocktail waitress, and coat checker while auditioning for roles.
Until the age of eighteen, Bullock held an American/German dual citizenship. In 2009, she reapplied for German citizenship.
Sandra Bullock was at a loss when she was trying to come up with her acceptance speech for the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards gala. So she decided to turn to Google to learn more about who she is. Watch to find out what the “mediocre” and “over 40” actress learned about herself, thanks to Internet commenters.
Here’s wishing you a very happy 50th birthday.
You have made my life better. I enjoy your movies, your philosophy of life, your kindness. your genuineness and your congeniality.
