I Want To Break Free

"I Want to Break Free" was written by John Deacon out of frustration. This pop song is best known probably because of its controversial video, featuring all four Queen members dressed up as women, in a parody of the British soap opera Coronation Street. The idea for the clip was Roger Taylor's. Freddie commented that 'Everybody ran into their frocks'. John Deacon, the song's author, insisted he didn't want a guitar solo on the track so a synth solo was played by Fred Mandel – live, however, May played the solo on guitar.

Famous quotes containing the words free and/or break:

    We must be free or die, who speak the tongue
    That Shakespeare spake; the faith and morals hold
    Which Milton held.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    The near touch of death may be a release into life; if only it will break the egoistic will, and release that other flow.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
