I want to break free

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
I’ve fallen in love
I’ve fallen in love for the first time
And this time I know it’s for real
I’ve fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love
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 want 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

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[2] and other stations.

Do you want to break free?

I think this is one of those songs that can be interpreted in lots of different ways. I love songs like this that can identify with so many people that need to identify with a song. For me the way I interpreted “I want to break free” is partly explored in the way it is used in the we will rock you musical. Wanting to break free from a a world that is just so false and corrupt and untrustworthy and evil, etc. And also I can identify with I want to break free, in terms of wanting to break free from my life the way and break free and change it and myself. This is one of my favoruite songs, based on the fact that it a brilliantly written song but also because the lyrics are so powerful. Maybe you can use the power in the song to break free too?

Like I said before, the song can be interpreted in many ways. Maybe reading between the lines, it’s John Deacon declaring he’d really like out of Queen (it’s 1983) so he can pursue other things. Very cleverly written. For years I thought it was a Freddie ‘coming out’ song.

Especially the last verse:

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

“I can’t get used to living without you by my side” – yeah leaving Queen ain’t gonna be easy

“God knows, got to make it on my own” – John Deacon hoping his solo career works out

Songs like bohemian rhapsody are such amazing songs and so creative and imaginative. But I find that I connect more personally to the lyrics in songs like “I want to break free”.

No it is not easy to break free from the everyday life and something very established. But if you feel that this is not right for you and you want to live in another way……God knows, you got to make it on your own…
