"Mother Love" was the last song that Brian May wrote with Freddie Mercury. The song was featured on Queen's last album with Mercury at the helm, Made In Heaven. Together they were looking for a vehicle to showcase Mercury's new "inward-looking style." Knowing that Mercury didn't have long to live, May wanted to write a song that talked about the universal longing we all feel for the safety and warmth of our infancy.
