One of the biggest fan accounts of Queen legend Freddie Mercury on Instagram, Freddie Mercury Club, revealed the behind story of Freddie’s iconic ‘In My Defence’ song’s music video.

As you might know, In My Defence released in 1986, and the remix version of the song released in 1992, which reached the top 10 singles in the United Kingdom’s weekly charts. The song was written by ‘Dave Clark,’ ‘David Soames,’ and ‘Jeff Daniels.’

In the caption, the admin of the page showed how a great vocalist Freddie was by revealing that the vocal lines of the song were recorded in the first session, which is a really uncommon thing in the music industry.

Furthermore, the admin mentioned that the music video of ‘In My Defence’ was released after the death of Freddie, and explained why it is so emotional to watch the music video. The admin said that the director of the video, Rudi Dolezal, used lots of materials from Freddie’s career and unseen footages of him.

Here is what admin of the page wrote:

“In My Defence. The song was written by Dave Clark, David Soames and Jeff Daniels for the musical ‘Time.’

In My Defence was recorded in October 1985 at Abbey Road Studios, London and at Musicland Studios, Munich six months after the release of Mr Bad Guy and was originally released in May 1986 on the soundtrack-album of ‘Time.’

The beautiful piano in the song was played by Mike Moran (who met Freddie for the first time during the record in of this song and later worked on the Barcelona album), with Graham Jarvis on drums, Paul Vincent on guitars, Andy Pask on bass, and keyboard and synths by Peter Banks and also parts done by Freddie himself.”

Admin of the page continued:

“Believe it or not, Freddie’s mesmerizing and spine-chilling vocals in the song were sung and recorded in the first take.

In 1992, a remix by Ron Nevison was released posthumously and reached number eight on the UK Singles Chart.

In My Defence was later released on The Freddie Mercury Album and also on The Solo Collection.

The music video, made after Freddie’s death in 1991, was directed by Rudi Dolezal as a montage of outtakes of past music videos, private shots, as well as highlights of Freddie’s career. “
