Hans’ Pick of the Day

Under Pressure” is a 1981 song by Queen and David Bowie. It marked Queen’s first released collaboration with another recording artist, and is featured on their 1982 album Hot Space. The song reached #1 on the UK Singles Chart. It was also number 31 on VH1‘s 100 Greatest Songs of the ’80s.  


Bowie had originally come to the studios in order to sing backing vocals in another Queen song, “Cool Cat,” which would end up being edited out since he wasn’t satisfied with them. Once he got there, they worked together for a while and wrote the song.

In the song, Freddie Mercury sings the high vocals, and David Bowie sings the low ones.
