‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Officially Biggest Selling 70’s Single in The UK


1970s decade singles

Could it have honestly been anything else by any other act? 

1. Bohemian Rhapsody
Artist: Queen
Released: 1975
Official Singles Chart peak: Number 1 (1975 & 1991)
Total UK sales: 2.62 million

Having recently set an Official Charts record earlier this year with Greatest Hits becoming the first album in UK chart history to reach ‘sales’ of 7 million, Queen can also now claim the biggest-selling single from the 1970s with Bohemian Rhapsody.

Their masterpiece, nothing has quite sounded like Bohemian Rhapsody before or since. The second best-selling single in the history of the Official Charts, Bohemian Rhapsody has had the honour of becoming Number 1 twice; once upon its original release in 1975 for nine weeks, and then once again in 1991 following the death of Queen’s effervescent front man Freddie Mercury.
