Twee jaar na het uitbrengen van het album Hot Space brengt Queen het album The Works uit. De band keert in The Works weer duidelijk terug naar hun rock roots. Bekend zijn Radio Ga Ga en I Want To Break Free (met de clip waarin "de vrouwelijke kanten van de bandleden" te zien zijn).

Tracklist[bewerken]

  1. Radio Ga Ga- (Taylor) (4:10)
  2. Tear It Up - (May) (3:46)
  3. It's a Hard Life - (Mercury) (4:31)
  4. Man On The Prowl - (Mercury) (4:29)
  5. Machines (or 'Back To Humans') - (May en Taylor) (3:32)
  6. I Want To Break Free - (Deacon) (3:18)
  7. Keep Passing The Open Windows - (Mercury) (3:28)
  8. Hammer To Fall - (May) (3:50)
  9. Is This The World We Created...? - (May en Mercury) (4:26)

De Hammer To Fall is volgens de website van May een toespeling op de zeis van Magere Hein,[1] maar het advies Keep Passing The Open Windows is dat ook. Uit het boek The Hotel New Hampshire (1981) van John Irving en de gelijknamige film (1984) komt het citaat: "But our dreams escape us however vividly we imagine them. There's only one thing you can do, keep passing the open windows."
