"Breakthru" is a song by English rock band Queen. Credited as being written by Queen, it was released in June 1989 from the album The Miracle. The single reached #7 in the UK but was not released in the United States. The song begins with 30 seconds of slow vocal harmony, written by Freddie Mercury, and then abruptly changes to a fast-paced rocker, that was mostly written by Roger Taylor. The intro was originally meant for a different song which ended up never being released, "A New Life Is Born". Read more on Last.fm.
