"I Was Born to Love You" is a 1985 song by Freddie Mercury, and was released as a single and on the Mr. Bad Guy album. After Mercury's death, Queen remixed this song for their album Made in Heaven in 1995, by having the other members play their instrumental parts over the original track.

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 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 his Mr. Bad Guy album.

Brazilian singer Danni Carlos recorded a cover version in 2003.

Famous quotes containing the words born and/or love:

    Because a person is born the subject of a given state, you deny the sovereignty of the people? How about the child of Cuban slaves who is born a slave, is that an argument for slavery? The one is a fact as well as the other. Why then, if you use legal arguments in the one case, you don’t in the other?
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    As individuals and as a nation, we now suffer from social narcissism. The beloved Echo of our ancestors, the virgin America, has been abandoned. We have fallen in love with our own image, with images of our making, which turn out to be images of ourselves.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
