Queen, ‘Las Palabras de Amor’ – Cute Babies on Album Covers
Translated to ‘The Words of Love,’ this ballad from the rock band Queen, written by guitarist Brian May, hit record stores — with a cute baby’s face on the cover — as a single from the band’s 1982 album ‘Hot Space.’
It was written as an homage to the group’s Latin-American fans, who were always among the band’s strongest supporters. ‘Las Palabras de Amor’ went on to hit No. 17 on the UK charts, proving the love flowed both ways between artist and fans.
If you’re thinking you’ve seen this face before, you’re correct. It’s also on the cover of ‘New Dark Ages‘ by the Cross, Roger Taylor’s side project.
