History


"I Want to Break Free" is a song from their eleventh studio album The Works (1984).

Written by bassist John Deacon, it was distributed as a single on 7-inch and 12-inchvinyl records and 3-inch and 5-inch CDs.

The song had three versions: album, single and extended, differing in length by more than a factor of 2.

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 song is largely known for its music video for which all the band members dressed in women's clothes, a concept proposed by Roger Taylor, which parodied the long-running ITV soap opera Coronation Street.

The second part of the video included a composition rehearsed and performed with the Royal Ballet and choreographed by Wayne Eagling.

Whereas the parody was acclaimed in the United Kingdom, it was considered controversial in the United States and banned by MTV[  and other stations.

After its release in 1984 the single of the song was well received all over Europe and South America, where it was listed within top ten and regarded as an anthem of fight against oppression.

The single reached only the 45th position in the US charts, but reached number 3 in the UK and was certified silver with 200,000+ copies sold.
