But life still goes on



Timeslip moment again, folks - as we hop into our Tardis for another trip back to the heady days of 1984.

Thirty years ago this week, Freddie and the boys caused a sensation when they threw on the drag and camped it up hilariously in the video for their massive hit I Want To Break Free. And it remains a classic to this day...



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.


Time flies, etc., etc.

RIP, Freddie.

    1. A classic year, indeed - and will continue to be featured here in these "timeslip moments" throughout 2014... Jx

  3. Such a brilliant, brilliant video (and song).

    1984 was a brilliant year for music - but then again, so were most of the other years of the 80s...
