I Was Born to Love You (4:50)

Cover of Made In Heaven

From Made In Heaven and 11 other releases

“I Was Born to Love You” is a 1985 song by Freddie Mercury, and was released as a single as well as on his Mr. Bad Guy album. After Mercury’s death, the remaining members of Queen - John Deacon, Brian May, and Roger Taylor - re-mixed the song for the 1995 album release Made In Heaven, with the three playing their instrumental parts over the original track.

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 Mercury’s song “Living On My Own” off. “Mr. Bad Guy”.

The song received its live debut on the 2005 Queen + Paul Rodgers tour of Japan.
Roger Taylor and Brian May performed the song acoustically.

The song has been featured in the multiple television advertisements and a program mainly in Japan. The original version recorded by Mercury was featured in the TV commercial of Japanese cosmetics company Noevia in the mid 1980s. The Queen remix was released as a single exclusively in Japan in February 1996, because the song was used in a TV ad for Kirin Ichiban Shibori, one of the best-selling liquors of the country produced by the Kirin Brewery Company. The single became their first song that entered the Japanese chart since “Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)”, released in 1977.
