Freddie Mercury released his solo single ‘I Was Born To Love You’

23 April 1985 – Freddie Mercury released his solo single ‘I Was Born To Love You’ from his debut solo album, ‘Mr. Bad Guy’ in the USA 🇺🇸

“I’m possessed by love. I’m a romantic. I’m also a man of extremes. I think the songs on this album reflect the state of my life; a diverse selection of moods. I wanted to write a batch of songs that came out under the name of Freddie Mercury. It’s not like starting a new career, it’s more like going off at a tangent. I feel I’m doing this with all the experience I’ve gained with Queen. But this is just me. I’m in control.

Most of the songs I write are love ballads and things to do with sadness and torture and pain, but at the same time, it’s frivolous and tongue-in-cheek. I’m a true romantic

It’s like painting a picture; you have to step away from it to see what it’s like. I’m stepping away from Queen and I think it’s going to give everybody a shot in the arm. But of course I’ll be working with Queen again, there’s no doubt about that.

Yes, I would like it to be successful. It matters to me a lot. I’ve made a piece of music which I want to be accepted in the biggest way possible.”

In 1995, Queen reworked this fantastic song by adding fresh instruments over the original track turning it into more of a rock track and included it on their fifteenth and final studio album, “Made In Heaven.”
