21/12/1991 Queen start a 5-week run at #1 on the UK singles chart

"Bohemian Rhapsody" became a commercial success, selling more than a million copies. The single reached number one again for 5 weeks when the same version was re-released, as double A-side single with "These Are the Days of Our Lives", following Mercury's death. It eventually became the UK's third-best-selling single of all time.
