This week we’re watching WAYNE’S WORLD
7PM: SOUNDTRACK LISTENING
8PM: FILM SCREENING
Released in 1992, the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard album chart. The use of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the film propelled the song to number two on the Billboard singles charts 17 years after its first release. The studio originally wanted to use a Guns N’ Roses song for the scene, but Myers demanded “Bohemian Rhapsody”, even threatening to quit the production unless it was used. Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen, had died of bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS a few months before the film’s release. However, Mercury saw the head banging scene before his death, and he loved and approved the song for the film’s use.
