I Was Born To Love You

Album: Made In Heaven (1995)

Songfacts®:

  • Although originally debuting on Freddie Mercury's solo work Mr. Bad Guy, the remastered version by Queen has extra guitar solos, vocals, and has added lines of Mercury from prior songs such as "It's A Kind Of Magic" (Haha it's magic!) and "Hammer to Fall" (Give it to Me!). The song has a more pop flavor than most Queen songs.
