Gallery update : Flash Gordon, their ninth studio album and first soundtrack

8 December 1980, Queen released Flash Gordon, their ninth studio album and first soundtrack album by EMI Records in the UK.

Italian director Dino de Laurentiis was slated to direct a film adaptation of the 1930s comic hero, Flash Gordon. The De Laurentiis’ people made initial contact in the summer of 1979 (during preliminary sessions for “The Game”) to ask whether Queen would score the film. Although, the great Italian producer wasn’t actually aware of the band since he never listened to rock music. His first question on learning of the liaison was “Who are the Queens?”

Brian May recalled, ““We saw 20 minutes of the finished film and thought it very good and over the top. We wanted to do something that was a real soundtrack. It’s a first in many ways because a rock group has not done this type of thing before, or else it’s been toned down and they’ve been asked to write mushy background music. Whereas we were given the license to do what we liked, as long as it complimented the picture.”

Queen’s assignment for Flash Gordon was to supply original songs as well as the score — and that, coupled with the film’s sci-fi story, proved too intriguing to resist.

“We would be writing a film score in the way anyone else writes a film score, which is basically background music, but can obviously help the film if it’s strong enough,” he added. “That was the attraction, because we thought that a rock group hadn’t done that kind of thing before, and it was an opportunity to write real film music. So we were writing to a discipline for the first time ever, and the only criterion for success was whether or not it worked with and helped the film, and we weren’t our own bosses for a change. “

Queen spend two days filming a video for “It’s A Hard Life.

These days, June 1984, Queen spend two days filming a video for “It’s A Hard Life.

The video was filmed @ The Arnold & Richter studio Studios in Munich over the course of two days by acclaimed music video director, Tim Pope. This video was very expensive. It had an enormous set, large number of extras and Brian’s special made skull and bones guitar (with a price tag of more than £1000)

Here is Brian May’s thoughts on the beautiful song and outrageous video. I find it fitting to share his feelings…

“Here we are making a music video clip, otherwise known as a ‘promo video,’ this time created for the song “It’s A Hard Life.” We filmed this one in Munich. Now, “It’s a hard life” is one of my favourite Freddie songs ever, and we did actually collaborate on some of the lyrics. Unusually, we delved into individual words and phrases with slight variations in great depth. We were looking for the core meaning of the song and were conscious of the fact that it didn’t matter what kind of sexuality or love we were talking about; it was about feelings of abandonment and loneliness, and what love actually meant.

Freddie’s hair nearly caught fire during the video shoot of ‘I Was Born To Love You

Freddie’s hair nearly caught fire during the video shoot of ‘I Was Born To Love You

Freddie’s hair nearly caught fire during the video shoot of ‘I Was Born To Love You.’ This song was released as a single on the ‘Mr. Bad Guy’ album. David Mallet the video director said of the incident,” I also remember with Freddie in front of those mirrors, I wanted to give him a halo. To give someone with black hair a halo is quite difficult.
And we put this sodding great light above his head, and after about half an hour, his hair started smoking literally. Literally smoking! And I remember shouting, Fred get the hell out of there before you catch fire!

Mallet also said that the wobbly mirrors were totally by chance. He said, “Freddie singing and dancing in front of all those mirrors was actually a lucky accident.
In the video shoot the playback speaker was put near one of the mirrors. It’s the bass of the speaker that started to rattle the mirror, and I remember looking thru the camera and thinking, ‘God that looks good.’ So we ended up with a runner boy kicking each mirror in time with the beat. And thankfully we didn’t break any mirrors, but it worked.”

The smoking hair that could have turned Freddie into a human torch, and the vibrating mirrors were all by chance events that created one of the most fun and sensual videos from Queen.
Freddie was terrific in this video and was having the time of his life. Seeing him happy made me happy and no matter how many times I watch this, the biggest smile comes over my face which will continue, ‘Forever And One Day’.

Queen began filming the promo video for ‘Breakthru,’

12 June 1989 – Queen began filming the promo video for ‘Breakthru,’ a powerful pop-rock song with a thumping Deacon beat that seemed to suggest the chugging of an express train. As a result, The Torpedo Twins (DoRo Productions) video was filmed on a custom painted steam train, ‘The Miracle Express,’ which took over the privately owned Nene Valley Railway in Cambridgeshire, England over two sweltering days.

The heat was the only real discomfort during the making of the video, which was a change from the usual freezing cold studios, but kept Freddie awake all night in his hotel room after the first day of shooting.
