Written by John Deacon and taken from the 1984 Queen album ‘The Works’, ‘I Want To Break Free’ peaked at the Number 3 spot in the UK and was a big Top 10 hit across Europe and in Australia and New Zealand.
The music video was directed by David Mallet and shot on 22 March and 4 May 1984 at Limehouse Studios. The first part of the video was a spoof of the ITV soap opera Coronation Street, as proposed by Roger Taylor. "We had done some really serious, epic videos in the past, and we just thought we'd have some fun. We wanted people to know that we didn't take ourselves too seriously, that we could still laugh at ourselves. I think we proved that."
