It seems this song isn't that popular among you guys. But it is very popular in my country(Japan) and was used for TV commercial and the theme song of a drama several times. Some more the song is very popular choice at wedding parties(grooms sing for their brides!) What's your opinion?

Speaking about Freddie's solo love songs, I prefer "Love me like there's no tomorrow".

I really love this song and even started a small-ish cover last year for someone's engagement party. But I didn't have it done in time... :( But man, it rocks.

Peace,
Adam.

I like it, especially the Made In Heaven version. I think it's one of Freddie's best solo songs.

Oh,really.How you did you get that? At music store or through internet order? I am a bit curious since you live in Moscow(I saw your profile) I remember the song came up for a TV advert of a cosmetic company for the first time. Yes, the last one is for the beer company.

Here in Brazil it is very popular too, because it was used by Rede Globo in the soap "A Gata Comeu", throughout the year of 1985.

At music store for collectors - there are such stores in Moscow where you can buy some very rare releases.

There's another demo version which is not on Freddie's box set and it sounds very strange!

Check it for download: http://www.meddows.com/multimedia/

Ah yes, I remember that demo from long, long ago. MOST interesting, to me. Like someone was standing nearby, recording, while someone played with and soloed the tracks. Nice.

Shame about the high pitched tape, but it's still really cool.

Peace,
Adam.

"I was born to love you" is a great song!! Both the solo and the Queen release are awesome...

I hope they would release the song internationally that would be great...

Does anybody have a link in which we can see the Japanese Television Ad that features the song??

I'm crazy about this song! Always was. I remember reading when it just came out that Freddie actually dedicated it to himself. Don't remember where I read it though. I think it's cool if it's true!

I too love the demo piano version on Freddie's box set.

Uhm... demo version? Don't you mean piano+vocal version? Cause that's the just the underlying Freddie vox and piano mix. Not a demo and isn't claimed to be one on the box.

Peace,
Adam.
