Love Kills is Freddie Mercury’s first song recorded as a solo artist.
It was originally used in Giorgio Moroder’s restoration and edit of the 1927 silent film Metropolis, as part of the movie’s new soundtrack. The movie was nominated at the 1985 Razzie Awards for “Worst Original Score”, and the song itself was nominated for “Worst Original Song”, even though the single reached #10 on the UK Singles Chart.
Love Kills was written by Giorgio Moroder and Freddie Mercury and the 12″ single included a Moroder instrumental from the Metropolis movie.
