Listen to Queens Bohemian Rhapsody on a 100+ Year Old Fairground Organ

The 1975 classic song Bohemian Rhapsody from Queen has been covered by countless artists over the years.

We have never heard it played on a Fairground Organ though let alone one that is over 100 years old.

Alexey Rom's YouTube Channel explores mechanical music and how these amazing machines could reproduce music.

This particular machine was built all the way back in 1905 and is an 81 key Marenghi Organ.

When Bohemian Rhapsody first came out, this machine was already 70 years old!

The organ reads a punch card style system that translates into notes and lengths.

Similar to how the early computers (which didn't have hard drives) would run computer programs.
