    Bohemian rhapsody on 100+ Year old Fairground Organ

    Figured I should start a new thread after I threadjacked Tom's thread on selling a couple of music rolls.

    There was some discussion of playing ABBA on an organ, and then there was a great video of someone playing Smooth criminal on an organ.

    Then this video popped up.

    Aww I have no issue of thread jacking my thread. I enjoyed the conversation.
    Anyway, yes I have seen this organ play as well. Some of these organ are very sophisticated.

    Took me a while to wrap my brain around that song coming from that instrument!

    Actually, it's a shade faster than the original. What's possibly throwing you off is the fact that the organ version isn't syncopated, while the original is.
