'Under Pressure' Vocal Track: Hear David Bowie & Freddie Mercury Sing Classic Queen Song Without Backing

Here's a treat for anyone with a pulse: the isolated vocal track of David Bowie and Queen singer Freddie Mercury recording the hit song "Under Pressure."

First unearthed back in May by Eric Alper to coincide with the 31st anniversary of the Queen album "Hot Space," on which "Under Pressure" appears, the clip has earned new viral life this week.

The sordid tale of how "Under Pressure" was recorded is a great one, and Open Culture has quite a rundown. For those just interested in the song itself, however, take a listen above. The original is below.
