A Boy Was Playing the Piano in the Subway, Man Asks Him to Play Really Hard Song

If you’re a fan of the iconic band, Queen, you’d definitely love this one. The song “Bohemian Rhapsody” has long changed the face of music. It’s an anthem that everyone has probably heard of at least once. It’s tied with so much creative freedom and control that it became a legendary piece- something like no other. And despite its unusual structure, people try their hardest to perform the song. May it be on stage, in public places, at the back of your car, or in the bathroom, the song invites you to sing along at the top of your lungs. That’s why it’s no surprise that this piece still never fails to amuse the crowd when performed wonderfully.

Just like how this young boy became a head-turner as soon as he touched the piano and started playing the masterpiece in the London St. Pancras International Station, everyone anticipated him to show them the magic of the Queen once more. The funny thing is, just as he was about to start the intro for Bohemian Rhapsody, a gentleman man interrupted him to ask if he could play the very song. Not to mention that the man looks much like Bernie! The young musician only smiled shyly to the man before facing the instrument again, ready for his second attempt.
