May 6, 1986: “Time” for Freddie Mercury

Freddie_Mercury_Time_single_1986Time” is a song recorded by Freddie Mercury, along with “In My Defence“, for Dave Clark‘s musical of the same name. Even though Mercury did not appear in the musical itself, both songs were included on the cast album, and “Time” was also released as a separate single, backed by an instrumental version of the song, and reached No 32 on the UK Singles Chart.

The song video was shot at the Dominion Theatre, London, where the play was being staged since the world premiere of 9 April 1986. Since a matinée and evening performance were scheduled, the only time left for shooting was the early morning: so Mercury and Austrian producer Rudi Dolezal had to meet there at 6.00am.  Watch the video on the Freddie Mercury Solo YouTube Channel.
