In honor of what would’ve been Freddie Mercury’s 68th birthday today: From Queen’s 1975 A Night at the Opera release, “You’re My Best Friend” was one of the most-played singles that helped the album become a hit. Released in the U.S. as a single, the track rose to #16 on the Billboard Hot 100. As relates to the Wurlitzer piano track, while normally Mercury handled such duties, he is said to have detested electric pianos. Instead, bass player John Deacon, who also wrote the song, played keys on the track. It was produced by Queen and Roy Thomas Baker.
