Bohemian Rhapsody of Queen is again number one in the Top 2000 this year. The top three will be supplemented with Hotel California by The Eagles and Piano Man by Billy Joel.
Bohemian Rhapsody of Queen performs the Top 2000 for the sixteenth time. The top three is different from last year, when Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin (now number 4) was still there. Piano Man of Billy Joel then fell outside the top three.
Wish You Were Here from Pink Floyd completes the top 5. Child In Time by Deep Purple (6) and Black by Pearl Jam (7) have fallen a place, just like Fix You by Coldplay (9) and Avond van Boudewijn de Groot (10). A remarkable climber is Africa by Toto. Last year the number was 25, now at 8.
“The Top 2000 is more than ever in the whole of the Netherlands and the number one is exemplary, and Bohemian Rhapsody is by far the most popular among younger voters “, says channel manager Jan-Willem van Engelen.
“Other records in the top ten are also embraced by both younger and older voters.” Look at Piano Man , which is very popular among students, for example. “
The complete Top 2000 will be announced on December 19.
