Freddie Mercury vs Beyonce

Stashed in: Beyonce!, Queen

The picture compares Beyonce's "Run This World (Girls)" with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the songwriting and lyrics department. Beyonce's hit, when written out, looks stupid, and it was designed by six writers and four producers. "Bohemian Rhapsody"'s iconic lyrics were written by one great man: Freddie Mercury. So there you have it, folks: apples CAN be compared to oranges.

FALSE. According to this Tweet, "Run This World" was only written by Beyonce and The-Dream. The confusion comes from the samples, which were obviously written by multiple people. Guess Freddie Mercury is only two times better now, as opposed to six times better.

Yes, but what would you rather listen to?

YouTube says "Bohemian Rhapsody" has 57 million watches.

"Run the World" has 161 million. YouTubers have spoken with their eyeballs.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" Wikipedia page is awesome.

My favorite Queen song is "Under Pressure":

Though I'm also very partial to "Somebody to Love":

He works hard every day. He tries and he tries and he tries...

Beyonce, of course, has one of the best videos of all time.

I never realized she made a song called "Ego" with Kanye. That explains a lot.

I do love her video for "Party":

I have two favorite Beyonce songs. One is "Crazy in Love":

The other is "Naughty Girl":
