So I was wandering through Youtube and happened upon this duet by David Bowie and Annie Lennox. Under Pressure is one of my favorite Queen songs, so I gave it a listen. Yeah, they look kind of weird; so did Freddie Mercury, most of the time. ;)

Any other Queen fans around?

Oh, I know. I read about how his eyes were blue until a fight with a friend, and now the eye that was affected looks either brown or green ... anyway. Wish I could have been at this concert.

Huge fan of queen here. One of my favorites is Tenement Funster/Flick of the Wrist/Lilly of the Valley among their other obscure and rarely if ever heard on radio gems. Queen is easily among my favorite bands.

How could you even let him get away with such a theft?? He doesn't deserve to have that kind of power. :(

Vanilla Ice ruined Under Pressure for me.

Annie Lenox has no business singing that song.

I introduced the boy to Queen via youtube this summer, and he was mighty impressed. He asked me if Freddie Mercury had achieved the same level of fame as Michael Jackson, and I told him that's exactly what's wrong with the music industry. FM & Queen were exceptionally talented. Not the MJ wasn't talented in his own genre, but it's like comparing Mozart to Yanni.

I love Annie.

Comparing Michael Jackson to Freddie Mercury - I don't know. MJ was very talented but it's SO different. And losing Freddie broke my heart. Such a waste.
