Mercury and Bowie: Unplugged and Under Pressure

Mind. Blown.  A few months back, a recording surfaced of Freddie Mercury and David Bowie in-studio singing the vocals of their now-iconic hit “Under Pressure.”  Without its musical backing.  The isolated vocal track, which was sung for the studio recording of the song has now, for all intents and purposes, become an unintentional acapella session.   They sound incredible; spot on.  If you’ve ever doubted them, their talent or their brilliance, listen on.  Take that, Vanilla Ice.

The original, for those who need a refresher or want to compare the two.
