- Queen & David Bowie - "Under Pressure" (Classic Queen Mix) - YouTube — "This remix is very close to the final album version. The bass lines seem to be a bit more prominent in the mix and the overall sound is a little less muddy. Freddie singing "that's okay!" has been removed right before Bowie sings, "it's the terror of knowing..." It is unknown who did this remix. It is rumored that this is actually an old mix from around the Hot Space time period". Info taken from www.QueenVault.com
- Understanding "Under Pressure" - YouTube — In the history of music, there have been many great duets, but for my money, there's one that stands above them all: Under Pressure, by Queen and David Bowie. It's the result of two generational talents coming together to create a song neither could've made on their own, and it's absolutely brilliant, from the iconic bass riff to the lyrics to, yes, Freddie Mercury's pitch-perfect voice. It tells a timeless story both lyrically and musically, and it captures the best of everyone who helped make it.
