Queen - I Want To Break Free download album

I Want to Break Free" (sample ) is a song by the British rock band Queen, from their eleventh album The Works (1984). It was written by bass guitarist John Deacon and was released in three versions: album, single and extended. It came to be included in most live concerts by the group, in several videos and in The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert where it was sung by Lisa Stansfield.

The second single from Queen’s 11th studio album The Works, I Want To Break Free gained notoriety primarily for its controversial music video. The video featured the band dressed as the cast of the popular soap opera Coronation Street and has Freddie Mercury dancing with members of the Royal Ballet Theatre. Mercury plays a housewife who wants to break free from his constraining life.

African National Congress in South Africa chose this song as their anthem in the late 1980s: Nelson Mandela was still in jail and the apartheid was still in place. The music video for this song parodies a popular British television show "Coronation Street". When Lisa Stansfield sang this song at the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert, she came on stage wearing hair curlers and with a vacuum cleaner in tribute to the song's video  .

Album: The Works (1984). Mallet, who directed several other Queen videos like "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Radio Ga Ga," said he had the most fun with this clip. More songs from Queen. More songs about being free. Mark from Dartmouth, Ns'I want to break free from your lies/ You're so self-satisfied I don't need you'. One of my favourite rock lyrics of all time

Album Live At Wembley, Back To The Light. Queen - I Want to Break Free Songtext. I want to break free I want to break free I want to break free from your lies You're so self satisfied I don't need you I've got to break free God knows, God knows I want to break free. It's strange but it's true I can't get over the way you love me like you do But I have to be sure When I walk out that door Oh how I want to be free, baby Oh how I have got to be free, Oh how I want to break free. But life still goes on I can't get used to, living without, living without, Living without you by my side I don't want to live alone, hey God knows, got to make it on my own So baby can't you see I've got to break free. I've got to break free I want to break free, yeah I want, I want, I want, I want to break free. Teile diesen Songtext
