Under Pressure

This song still hits home like it was written yesterday.  Under Pressure, 1981, Queen and David Bowie with Freddy Mercury laying it all on the line.  Lyrics from the end of the song…

Turned away from it all like a blind man.  Sat on a fence but it don’t work.  Keep coming up with love but it’s so slashed and torn.  Why – why – why?  Love, love, love, love, love…Insanity laughs under pressure we’re cracking.  Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?  Why can’t we give love that one more chance?  Why can’t we 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 love dares you to change our way of caring about ourselves.  This is our last dance.  This is ourselves.  Under pressure.
