I Want To Break Free

Recorded live at The Brickmakers Arms, Oxted, Monday 25th October 2021.

“I Want to Break Free” is a song by the British rock band Queen, written by their bass guitarist John Deacon. It appears on the album The Works (1984).

The single reached #3 in the UK charts and was a #1 hit in many European countries.The song is largely known for its music video for which all the band members dressed in drag, a concept proposed by drummer Roger Taylor, which parodied the long-running ITV soap opera Coronation Street.

The official video currently has over half a billion views on YouTube!

As with most of my videos on here, the musicians accompanying me are jammers and this is our one and only performance of the song. No rehearsals, no overdubs!
