Top 10 Reasons Why Bohemian Rhapsody is Better Than Stairway to Heaven

Here are reasons why Bohemian Rhapsody is better than Stairway to Heaven.

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody is More Creative

ABSOLUTELY... NO COMPARISON. Actually, there are probably a thousand reasons why Bohemian Rhapsody is better than Stairway To Heaven.

This song is GENIUS created by a musical genius.

Think about both songs are creative but Bohemain Rhapsody is a story in a song about a man who just killed someone and is being hunted down by the police and not mention its done like Opera while Stairway is also a creative song its not as creative as Bohemian Rhapsody is - christangrant

A GOOD COMPARISON LIST? The world has gotten treated with happiness. Anyways, there is no song better than Bohemian Rhapsody, so agree with this list. - DCfnaf

Yep. I love Stairway to Heaven but Bohemian Rhapsody... you can't even compare them. - PeeledBanana

Freddie was the best vocalist of all time.

3 Stairway to Heaven Has a Plagiarized Element

I like both, but I know Led Zeppelin copied songs

The beginning sounds very simular to Spirit - Taurus whereas Bohemian Rhapsody isn't Plagerized - christangrant

True. - AlphaQ

4 Bohemian Rhapsody Was Written by One Person

Biggest reason. ALL BY HIMSELF Freddie Mercury has written this masterpiece. He is definitely the best singer ever. - DCfnaf

How the hell does that make it better? I mean it is better but this isn't why - LarrytheFairy

Heres my explanation its more impressive to me when a song as great as this is only written by one person (In this case its Freddie Mercury) whereas Stairway to Heaven is written Two people so two brains behind one song isn't as impressive (To me anyway) - christangrant

Stairway was written by at least 3 people - don't forget about the plagiarized part written by Randy California from the band Spirit... - Metal_Treasure

Freddie Mercury wrote this song by himself whereas Stairway was written by Page and Plant - christangrant

5 Bohemian Rhapsody Has a Better Instrumental Than Stairway to Heaven

The only thing Stairway to Heaven had over Bohemian Rhapsody is that It has a Better Solo but that's it - christangrant

6 Bohemian Rhapsody is More Complex Than Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Haven has no talent. - AlphaQ

7 Bohemian Rhapsody Has a Cool Opera Effect in It

I don't hear no opera in Stairway to Heaven - christangrant

8 Bohemian Rhapsody Takes More Talent to Make

Yes, definitely. - Metal_Treasure

Very very true. - AlphaQ

9 Robert Plant Himself Hates Stairway to Heaven

When one of the members of the band hates the song you know you have a problem Smells Like Teen Spirit has the same thing as Kurt hates the song himself - christangrant

10 Queen is Better Than Led Zeppelin

I agree, but this isn't the best reason. - Userguy44

I prefer Queen than Led Zeppelin. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

Queen is better in my opinion, but that's probably because I adore Queen. - DCfnaf

And these two songs are considered their best and Queens was better - christangrant
