Hello everyone...I have a question for all you Queen fans...Do you guys like Under Pressure Live or in the Studio w/DB?...My personal favorite is live because of Freddie, Roger and Brian's vocals...Cheers!!!!

Brian didn't sing any part of Under Pressure live, at least 1981-1986. I prefer the studio version, with Freddie hitting the high A and with David and Roger harmonising at the end.


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.

I thought Brian did sing backing vocals on UP Live because if you watch Live at Wembley or liste to Live In Budapest you do hear and see Brian singing...but Sebastian you may be correct...Cheers!!!

I agree with you, Sebastian.

As always, I have to say my favorite is the 'Rah' mix, with the Mike Spencer mix in second.

I prefer the Rah Mix also!
Really, no kiddin. It has a little more speed. It original always sounded a little (not much, just a little little) too slow for me.

I liked the studio version better than live. I must add, that I saw Queen+Paul Rodgers in Chicago, and I must confess Under Pressure was the surprise song of the night. I really wish I had it on mp3, because it came off a lot better than I could have imagined. I think Brian May surprised everybody when he nailed the high parts... got dem goose bumps baby!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, Rah Mix... you know, the one that is on GH3 and that was a single in 1999/2000.
