The teaming of David Bowie and Queen for the track "Under Pressure" was a stroke a musical genius, bringing together Bowie and Freddie Mercury, two of the greatest voices in Rock and Roll history, together for the song from Queen's 1981 album Hot Space. Never mind the pure musical artistry contributed by the band's three remaining members, John Deacon, Brian May and Roger Taylor, the blend of Mercury and Bowie's voices was musical nirvana.

Evidenced once the track is stripped down to its a capella roots, letting the two voices speak for themselves. With the passing of Bowie, I can only hope that he was met at the pearly gates of heaven by Mercury, and they are singing this in a command performance tonight for the Lord himself.

Give it a listen!
