Roger Taylor band The Cross – Power To Love from the 1990 album Mad Bad And Dangerous To Know

In this video I play guitar along with the record. The video has on screen guitar tablature to make learning easier.

The song was also performed by Queen and Paul Rogers Live

After finishing Queen’s 1989 album The Miracle, Taylor went into the studio with the rest of The Cross for the first time to record Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know. The band composed the opening track “Top Of The World Ma”. The rest of the album consisted mainly of individually written songs, except for “Power To Love” which was a joint venture by Macrae, Noone and Moss. Clayton Moss sang lead vocals on his own track “Better Things”, and Spike Edney played mandolin on “Final Destination”, which was written by Taylor. “Final Destination” was released as a single, as were “Liar” and “Power To Love”, the latter being the last single to be released in the UK by the group. “Final Destination” came with a live rendition of Taylor’s song “Man On Fire” as a B-side, and “Liar” (Noone) had a brand new track, “In Charge Of My Heart”, which was also penned by Taylor. The song based on improvisations by Freddie of 2nd part of the song “Stealin'” – B-Side of “The Miracle (album)”. The 12″ single and CD of “Liar” also included extended remixes of both “Liar” and “In Charge Of My Heart”. The instrumental section at the beginning of “In Charge Of My Heart” was used as the opening to concerts on the accompanying tour. “Closer To You” (Edney) had been planned to be released in America, but the idea was never discussed again. The group having seemingly given up on the UK market, the accompanying tour only included dates in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Ibiza. Unusual for such tours, every song from the new album was played live.
