Music Monday, Under Pressure–Queen and David Bowie

Music Monday is a meme started by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. Pick a song you really like and share it.

Under Pressure is probably my favorite Queen song. It shows the power and range of Freddie Mercury’s incredible voice, the unforgettable bass line, and David Bowie. The difficulty of this song is apparent when you see artists try to cover it and fail, mostly because very few voices can compare to Freddie Mercury’s.

That doesn’t mean that there haven’t been successful covers. Following the Queen video, I offer an acapella version, which I also love from Romanian group Jazzapella.

ENJOY!
