"Too Much Love Will Kill You" was composed by May, Frank Musker and Elizabeth Lamers sometime between the Magic and Miracle sessions.
They wrote it in the US and Mercury sang on it.
However, there were some problems with the companies representing publishing rights for Musker and Lamers so they could not release the song properly on The Miracle.
At the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert May played the song on piano and sang it for the first time in public, and then released it as part of his solo album Back to the Light.
The Queen version is a new arrangement. The guitar solo used differs from the one on May's album, however May played variations of the Made in Heaven solo in live renditions as early as 1992.
The song was awarded Best Song Musically and Lyrically at the 1997 Novello Awards.
This song was also performed by Queen and Luciano Pavarotti in 2003, with Pavarotti singing the latter parts of the verses in Italian
