Making the rounds on social media this week is a musical time capsule that has recently been rediscovered. Posted in 2011, the track features the vocals of "Under Pressure," co-written by David Bowie and Freddie Mercury.
Already a classic, the song is even more mesmerizing when the music is stripped away. Bowie and Mercury's a capella chops are a reminder of what actual talent sounds like when it's not muddled with the production and glitter of contemporary music. Originally recorded in 1981, the track is as timeless as ever.
Vanilla Ice can keep his ripped off bassline. These guys are better without it. Listen to the recording below:
