In another thread which I didn't want to derail...
Imagine if Queen had called the new film 'Innuendo' instead of 'Bohemian Rhapsody'?
Which made me laugh and also think, both about how the movie would been interpreted with another title and also if another title would have made the movie different.
So, for instance, You're My Best Friend would be a different movie than Great King Rat.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the title, obviously plays a roll in selling the film.
Queen could have called the movie something else, something serious.
Listen, when Freddie died, a news reporter on television had said that his last album was ‘ironically titled ‘Innuendo’’ and I thought that in that perspective, the title fit so well in more ways than one.
Well a Bohemian used to be associated with a traveler rather than a stupid fashion style. ...and a Rhapsody is a musical bit that varies and was associated with epic storytelling.
In terms of dramatic appeal and the tale of a kid born in Zanzibar growing up to travel the world it's always been episodic and a very articulate and appropriate name for essentially an autobiographical song (*well. ..it's been my take for years that it's autobiographical)
But in jest. ...let's try.
