"Made in Heaven" is the third single recorded by Freddie Mercury, and his fourth release as a solo artist.

Originally featured in Mercury's debut album, the song was slightly edited and published as a 45rpm paired with "She Blows Hot and Cold", described on the record sleeve as 'A Brand New Track'. The single reached #57 on the UK Singles Chart.

After Mercury's death, the song's title gave the name to Queen's 1995 posthumous album Made in Heaven. The song was also chosen, along with "I Was Born to Love You", to be re-recorded for the album, with the previous vocals over a newly recorded instrumental track.

Music video

The song's video was realized with the help of David Mallet, previously involved in the making of the music video for "I Was Born to Love You", as well as five Queen clips. A Royal Opera House replica was built inside a warehouse in northern London (normal studios didn't have high enough roofs), where Mercury wanted to recreate scenes from Stravinskij's The Rite of Spring and Dante's Inferno.[2] The most remarkable element is probably the 67-foot tall rotating globe on top of which the singer stands in the last part of the videoclip. The outfit that Mercury wears in this music video is quite similar to the outfit worn in the music video for Queen song "Radio Ga Ga".
