Because I was listening to frickin Amy Grant and Evita (no offense, Evita, I still love you) when the rest of the world was getting this stuff, as I have said, a lot of what is old is still very new for me. I'd like to take a moment to appreciate "Under Pressure" by Bowie and Queen, which might be one of the greatest recorded songs ever. I heard a tepid cover of it a few days ago and it reminded me once again how great the original is. It's so bloody beautiful.

Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love give love give love give love
give love give love give love give love give love
'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And loves dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure


It is indeed amazing. I highly recommend feeding your brain with as much Queen and David Bowie as possible at all times. Seeing this song live in concert with Bowie singing with Gail Ann Dorsey, who is practically channeling Freddy Mercury's vocals and soul, has been a huge highlight in my concert going expereience. Not once,not twice, but thrice. Nice to hear of you delving into The Wall, too. If you have never seen the Talking Heads Stop Making Sense video directed by Johnathan Demme, you should probably do that right about now, too.
