“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 Reveal “Can’t Sleep Love,” Their First-Ever Original Single
The laid-back tune is the lead single off the famous a cappella group’s new self-titled album, which will be comprised of all original material
Pentatonix have exploded past a cappella circles to become platinum-selling superstars who tour with Kelly Clarkson. The vocal quintet are looking to brighten their star even more with the first-ever album of all-original material. The debut taste of the self-titled record came today via the doo-woppy lead single “Can’t Sleep Love.”
Premiered alongside its colorful and artistic music video, “Can’t Sleep Love” is an easy-breezy tune detailing the adorable feeling of being too excited to fall asleep when you’re digging someone so hard.
Musically, Avi Kaplan and Kevin “K.O.” Olusola give vocalists Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi and Kirstin Maldonado a bumpin’ beat to serve laid-back, pitch-perfect harmonies on top of. The result is a sweet bop of a tune that will could fit on radio with the a cappella arrangement bringing something fresh to the listeners’ ears.
“We’ve proved we can sing and we can arrange, now we want to prove we can write. We really wanted to push ourselves. We want to establish ourselves as original artists and show that we have something to say.”
“Can’t Sleep Love” is an undoubted an intriguing start to an album that promises to include everything “from chill, soulful stuff to upbeat, poppy craziness,” according to Pentatonix. For whatever reason, viral acts like PTX have an uphill battle when it comes to releasing original music and even with major-label backing and a passionate fan base, the act may struggle in this new sect of their careers. But as far as “Can’t Sleep Love” goes, consider us pitch-slapped and eager to hear more.
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 formed in 2011 and came to prominence the same year by winning the third season of The Sing-Off on NBC, their victory earning them $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music. After being dropped from the label (Epic Records) after The Sing-Off, the group formed their popular YouTube channel and distributed their music through Madison Gate Records, a small independent label owned by Sony Pictures that distributes movie soundtracks. The group also made effective use of social media to interact with their fan base.
Having now eclipsed 8.7 million subscribers and more than 1 billion cumulative views, the PTX official YouTube page is currently the 13th most subscribed-to music channel and the 44th most subscribed channel overall. Pentatonix’s most viewed music video is a tribute to Daft Punk that recently surpassed 150 million views.
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.
