"Love Kills" is a song by Freddie Mercury, and his first song recorded as a solo artist.
It was originally used in Giorgio Moroder's 1984 restoration and edit of the 1927 silent film Metropolis, as part of the film's new soundtrack.
In 1985, the film was nominated at the 5th Golden Raspberry Awards for Worst Musical Score, and the song itself was nominated for Worst Original Song.
Nevertheless, the single reached number ten on the UK Singles Chart.
"Love Kills" was also used for the closing credits of the 1993 film Loaded Weapon 1.
In 2009, a cover version by English synthpop singer Little Boots was included on her extended plays Little Boots and Illuminations.
In 2014, Brian May and Roger Taylor reworked a previously unreleased ballad version of the song for inclusion on their new compilation Queen Forever, an album which focuses on Queen's love songs and ballads.
