Queen reign with best music video honour
- 8 October 2007
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody has been named the best music video of all time, with almost a third of those polled voting for the opera-based rock song.
The survey was commissioned by O2 to mark the company’s sponsorship of the ‘best video’ category at the Q Music Awards tonight (8/10).
Michel Jackson’s dancing zombies in Thriller ranked second, winning 13% of the votes, while Justin Timberlake’s Cry Me A River came third with 12%.
Grahame Riddell, head of content at O2, said: 'This research shows that in many cases the music video is often more memorable and popular than the actual song.'
Meanwhile, a poll of BBC 6 Music listeners found that the most popular collaboration ever was Foggy Dew from Sinead O’Connor and The Chieftains.
The same survey named Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder’s 1982 song Ebony and Ivory the worst duet in history.
