April 9: Freddie Mercury was born to love you

I_Was_Born_to_Love_You_cover1985: “I Was Born to Love You” was the lead single from the Mr. Bad Guy album by Freddie Mercury. It reached No 11 in the UK Singles Chart.

After Mercury’s death, Queen re-worked this song for their album Made in Heaven in 1995, by having the other members play their instrumental parts over the original track transforming the song from a disco number to a hard rocker.  The Queen version from the Made In Heaven album also includes samples of Mercury’s ad-lib vocals taken from “A Kind of Magic” from the 1986 album of the same name and from “Living On My Own” from Mr. Bad Guy.
