Listen to " this is our last dance" in the last piece of "Under pressure". Is that David Bowie singing with Roger Taylor ? You can hear another voice very good when you play it in DTS surround 5.1. Is this Roger's voice ?

Would you really bother? I mean we've all heared this song, If you'd come with a unheared demo... great. But nothing special really.


srry to say this, but that's not the question. I think it's interesting. It is Roger singing with David : ''Is this our last dance'' ?

Now tell me what's interesting about that?


well, I think it's interesting too see which elements a song has. Everybody knows Queen made great masterpieces in the studio. Under pressure is absolutely one of those songs. It has got so much things. It's interesting to dissect a song to each small part.

Roger sang this line as a backing vocalist in almost every Queen concert that had this song in the setlist.

He has only ever rarely sang actual lead vocals on it with Queen (or Brian, to be more correct along BPP's lines).

That is Roger, even if it is kind of hard to hear. I only just realized it was him on backing vocals a few months ago, even though I've heard the song so many times!


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Get the karaoke version and you'll listen clearly just to Roger's backing vocal in the entire "caring about ourselves this is our last dance, this is our last dance, this is ourselves" part


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
