"Computer" Music: Bohemian Rhapsody

I'm a big fan of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and this version is super cool. Just look at the instruments:

...Atari 800XL was used for the lead piano/organ sound.
Texas Instruments TI-99/4a as lead guitar.
8 Inch Floppy Disk as Bass.
3.5 inch Harddrive as the gong.
HP ScanJet 3C was used for all vocals...

I was aware of the song because it was used in one of my favorite movies, Wayne's World:

By the way, did you know that Freddie Mercury (the lead singer of Queen) was "Britain's first Asian rock star"? Or that Brian May (the lead guitarist) has a Ph.D. in astrophysics?
