The sentimental ballad was written by Freddie Mercury. Freddie told me that. After Queen performed the song in South America in , the version from their live album Live Killers reached number 1 in the singles chart in Argentina and Brazil , and stayed in the charts in Argentina for an entire year. Freddie Mercury wrote it on the piano and guitar first, and Brian May rearranged the song for acoustic string guitar for live performances, also lowering the key by a minor third. May contributed occasional guitar phrases to the original recording and played the swooping harp glissandos by pasting together multiple takes of single chords. Introduced during the News of the World Tour in , "Love of My Life" was such a concert favourite that Mercury frequently stopped singing and allowed the audience to take over. It was especially well received during concerts in South America, and as a result, the band released the Live Killers version of the song as a single there. After Mercury's death, Brian May has frequently dedicated the song to him in his own live performances.
