"Living on My Own" is a song by Freddie Mercury, originally included in his first solo album Mr. Bad Guy. It was released as a single (backed with "My Love Is Dangerous") in September 1985 in the United Kingdom where it peaked at number 50. The July 1985 release in the United States had "She Blows Hot & Cold" as its B-side.
In 1993, almost two years after Mercury's death, the No More Brothers Mix of the song was released and reached number 1 in the UK, becoming Mercury's first solo number 1 hit. It remained at the top for 2 weeks.
The video for both the original 1985 and the 1993 remix versions of "Living on My Own" featured footage of Mercury's 39th birthday party in 1985 in Munich.
