It’s Monday and the first day back for The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show, and we’re asking the tough question this morning. When it comes to the two most well-known ‘pocket symphonies’ in music by The Beach Boys and Queen, we want to know who has the better song!
A ‘pocket symphony’ in music is typically defined as a song which incorporates instruments unusual for a pop song like the Beach Boys’ use of a cello and an electro-theremin.
Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations” are both known for their unusual compositions and tempos that combined make up these beautiful ‘pocket symphonies.’
But this is where the question gets tough; which band has the better ‘pocket symphony’ song? This is where we need you to decide!
Queen: “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Beach Boys: “Good Vibrations”
