I Want to Break Free
Queen + Paul Rodgers Lyrics

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....

Pau Rodgers what a living legend, as Brian May said, they all grew up watching him perform in their younger days and idiolised him.

no one can replace the great Freddie but thank you Paul Rodgers, you done it well on your own! 😊

I love Paul Rodgers and think he did an excellent job here.

I think in the Paul/Adam debate, they both have their plusses and minuses. Paul isn't much of an "entertainer" in the way that Freddie was, and doesn't really fit with the poppier side of things meaning that both tours had pretty much the same songs. Adam, on the other hand, is too trained in musical theatre to pull off the hard rock stuff, and is perfect for the poppier stuff and gets the campier side of the band and has been able to get deliver more of the catalogue.

Paul also has his own history and hugely successful back catalogue that they (rightly) included, so it felt more like a collaboration. But then his stuff doesn't sound very "Queen-y" (as much as I love it), so could be a bit jarring in the live set.

In fairness to Adam, I wasn't expecting to like him, but went along to the show and was pleasantly surprised.

At the end of the day I think they both do a good job, and it never feels like either of them are trying to be Freddie. Its not Queen, but theu're quite open about that. Personally, I just think it's cool to see Brian and Roger playing together, and would love to see them do a low key thing where they took the lead between them and played more obscure songs and told stories between them.


I would find it kind of cool if there were a few concert without a singer. So the audience sings 😅


Agreed. Paul Rodgers is a blues rock / hard rock singer, Adam Lambert a pop rock singer.

Lambert has the theatrical vibe Freddie had. And is perfectly capable of poppy songs like I Want To Break Free or Don't Stop Me Now in a somewhat Freddie-ish way. But heavier hard rock isn't his thing.

Rodgers sounds out of place during pop rock like Radio Ga Ga, but he's great at heavier stuff like Tie Your Mother Down and The Show Must Go On. Very different from Freddie, but still very good.

I think Queen should perform with both Rodgers and Lambert, splitting vocal duties, depending on the song. That would've been perfect, as unrealistic as it is.

The answer to this has only 1 name now and he is Marc Martell .

SwingRiots I think the beauty of Paul Rodgers' performance is that it is truly all about the power of his voice. He doesn't need to be a showman. He just "is..."

Love Rain
