Queen Quiz - Barcelona (Album)

Updated: Oct 6, 2023

In the past week, we have seen the opening of the delayed 2020 Toyko Summer Olympic Games.


Back in 1992, the Summer Olympics were held in Barcelona; after the Spanish city was selected to host the games, Freddie Mercury was approached to write the theme song for the games.

The idea was to create a duet with Montserrat Caballé, as she was from Barcelona.


Freddie Mercury had been a long-standing admirer of Montserrat Caballé and she grew to respect his talents very highly. Together, they decided to work on an album together.


The album serves as Freddie Mercury's second and final studio album, which was recorded between 1987-88 at the Townhouse and Mountain Studios.


The creative songwriting was led by Freddie Mercury and Mike Moran, sending Montserrat Caballé recordings with Mercury singing in falsetto to act as a guide for her.


In recognition of the collaborative studio album of Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé, this week's Queen Quiz takes a look back at their album, Barcelona.


Please note that all of the questions are based on the original UK release.
