And before anyone asks... the B-Side of the Love Kills single ("Rot Wang's Party") has nothing to do with Freddie. It's Georgio Moroder's. The thing in common with the 2 tracks is that they belong to the re-make of the METROPOLIS movie.

Umm... Everyone contributes something about this release, so it's my turn - on Argentinian single B-side is Bonnie Tyler's track

Ah! It's Love Kills trivia time? ;-)))

How bout this one:
No More Brothers (responsible for the nr-1 hitremix of Living On My Own) made three remixes of Love Kills. The best known one is the great Ouverture Mix (an awefull quality snippet of that one is around). All three remixes were intented for release right after Living On My Own, but none of them ever saw the light of day.

Okay... How about the wrong lyrics printed in Metropolis sleeve? :)

If you had kept your eyes wide open
You might have stood at least a chance
You could have taken some precaution
At least have had a second glance

Love is lethal, love's a crime
Love is fatal, love's a tyrant
Love is murder, love destroys
Love won't stop until
Love kills

Love hides and waits within your feelings
It's full of cloak and dagger style
And always ready without warning
To sentence you without a trial

Love is lethal, love's a crime
Love is fatal, love's a tyrant
Love is murder, love destroys
Love holds on until
Love kills

So now you're staring at the future
But you can't take along the past
And emptiness, that silver bullet
Slams and tears right through your heart

No, it's probably original lyrics written by Moroder, but Freddie didn't like and re-wrote it. And by someone's mistake it was printed on the sleeve.

Maybe early demo exists, but this question goes to Mr B.

I don't mean to turn this into another Too Much Love Will Kill You authorship thread, but why the co-writing credits on this one? And is that the reason why it wasn't released as a Queen single instead?

Because it was written by Freddie and Georgio... Freddie re-worked lyrics, but the idea came from Moroder. I don't know about music though.
