So many artists, musicians, bands, singers, and instrumentalists have covered the Queen classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” but none of them have rendered it quite like the Melodica Men have.
These two musicians have taken the internet by storm with their funny, unusual, yet very musical and entertaining arrangements of classic hits using the melodica. Tristan Clarke and Joe Buono are not just Youtube comedy jokesters…they are actual musicians from Julliard and Peabody Conservatory respectively.
The melodica is like a cross between a keyboard and a harmonica because you have to blow into it to make the reeds inside vibrate and the sounds it makes are like that of classroom instruments. It sounds funny and juvenile but with the masterful arrangements of Clarke and Buono, they make the melodica sound very complicated like their cover of Bohemian Rhapsody. Freddie Mercury surely would’ve LOVED this goofy, absurd, yet very superb rendition of his masterpiece.
