Queen drummer Roger Taylor spoke in an interview with NHK World, and revealed the untold truth behind “higher, higher scene” in Bohemian Rhapsody.

Interviewer asked:

“There’s a scene, during the recording of Bohemian Rhapsody, when they ask you to go higher, higher, higher with your voice. Did that really happen?”

Roger responded:

Not exactly like that because really when he was saying higher and higher, I was singing the same note but they were very high notes and I think I was the only one who could reach up there. But it made for a nice funny piece.”

Interviewer said ‘you mentioned in another interview that the song Bohemian Rhapsody isn’t your favorite’, Roger responded:

“I love it, I think it’s a great song. I don’t know about favorite. It is difficult. We have a lot of songs I like and I wouldn’t really put one of them above all the others.

I do have a special fondness for Under Pressure because it was great fun and I loved everybody and we had so much fun and personal satisfaction making that record and it has something to say as well. Favorites, I have lots.”

He also revealed his favorite scene, and said:

“I think one of things that moved me most was Freddie’s relationship with his father. I loved it when his father suddenly understood at the end that this was what Freddie did and he felt this huge pride. I think that’s a great moment.”
