“Love Kills” is a song by Freddie Mercury. It was his first song recorded as a solo artist, though the extent to which it is a solo song is questionable, as the three other members of Queen provided uncredited performances. It was originally used in Giorgio Moroder’s 1984 restoration and edit of the 1927 silent film Metropolis, as part of the film’s new soundtrack. In 1985, the film was nominated at the 5th Golden Raspberry Awards for Worst Musical Score, and the song itself was nominated for Worst Original Song.[1] Nevertheless, the single reached number ten on the UK Singles Chart.

“Love Kills” was also used for the closing credits of the 1993 film Loaded Weapon 1. In 2009, a cover version by English synthpop singer Little Boots was included on her extended plays Little Boots and Illuminations. Brian May and Roger Taylor announced that a long lost ballad version of the song will be reworked for their new compilation album Queen Forever an album which includes Queen’s love songs.
