“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 and #69 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in September 1984.
