Somebody to Love is the first single of the 1976 album A Day at the Races, written by Freddie Mercury. Similar to Bohemian Rhapsody, Somebody to Love has a complex melody and deep layering of vocal tracks, only this time is based on a gospel choir arrangement. It is a rock ballad on which band members Freddie Mercury, Brian May and Roger Taylor multitracked their voices to create the impression of a 100-voice gospel choir.
