Queen & David Bowie – Under Pressure

Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1970, originally consisting of Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar), and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals). Queen’s earliest works were influenced by progressive rock, hard rock and heavy metal, but the band gradually ventured into more conventional and radio-friendly works, incorporating further diverse styles into their music.

„Under Pressure“ is a 1981 song recorded by Queen and David Bowie, featured on Queen’s 1982 album Hot Space. The song reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart. It was also number 31 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the ’80s.

The song was played live at every Queen concert from 1981 until the end of Queen’s touring career in 1986. It is recorded on the live albums Queen Rock Montreal and Queen at Wembley. The song was included on some editions of Queen’s first Greatest Hits compilations, such as the original 1981 Elektra release in the US. It is included on the band’s compilation albums Greatest Hits II, Classic Queen, and Absolute Greatest as well as the compilation Best of Bowie.

John Richard Deacon (born 19 August 1951) is a retired English musician, best known as the bassist for the rock band Queen. Of the four members of the band, he was the last to join and also the youngest, being only 19 years old when he was recruited by the other members of the band. Deacon wrote a number of Queen’s hit singles, including „You’re My Best Friend“, „Spread Your Wings“, „Back Chat“, „I Want to Break Free“, and the band’s biggest selling single in the United States, „Another One Bites the Dust“, as well as a number of album tracks. He also played electric and acoustic guitars on several albums and, to a lesser extent, keyboards, synthesizers, programming and drums. He occasionally provided backing vocals during live shows.
