How Under Pressure Sounds Without Music: Freddie Mercury And David Bowie A Cappella!

Under Pressure. This musical gem has a little history as the tune that wasn’ t meant to exist.

In reality, it wouldn’ t exist today if it wasn ’ t for a 24 hour marathon of wine and drug by Freddie Mercury and David Bowie in 1981! Rather of taping the tune “ Cool Cat ” they chose to compose a brand-new one from scratch. Fortunately they did, and the tune has actually taken control of high school finishing classes since.

If you’ ve ever questioned exactly what the tune would seem like without the music in the back, it’ s practically haunting. Listen on your own!
