Annie Lennox - Under Pressure Lyrics




Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah
Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah

Pressure, pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure, that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah
Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah

That's o-kay
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming `Let me out'
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people, people on streets

Doh doh doh bah bah bah bah
O-kay C
hipping around, kick my brains around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours
People on streets, people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about,
Watching some good friends
Screaming `Let me out'
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people, people on streets

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

Insanity laughs, under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love one more chance
Why can't we give love, 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 our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

Annie Lennox Under Pressure Comments
  1. Tassie Royal

    Freddy sounded a lot better. His boys would reach higher notes and he had more deep feeling in it. He just made it sound so much stronger

  2. Diego Rocker

    Queen & Annie Lennox & David Bowie = Masterpiece ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  3. Shadespeare

    Oh hell yes. Annie hamming it up all operatically and in high couture commedia del arte style, Bowie having a good time and enjoying the music with no need of a persona, just his talent... I wager Freddie would have been so, so proud to see this.

  4. Karen Bringas

    I love freddie

  5. Mariana Garcia

    Awesome!

  6. Duckman 1979

    i remember my older sister b/f at the time got the MP3 of this of Napster (99-00) love this version never seen the footage so awesome (Annie Lennox is such a awesome singer she gets overlooked too much!

  7. Sarah Rockefeller

    All hail the King and Queen

  10. Alejandra Mae

    putangina naiiyak ako wala si freddie.

  11. brhristovch

    Freddie is the one and the only!!!

  12. Starlight Engram

    The streets have become a battle zone... we need to take them in off the streets. It's a cold time of year... everyone is broke... some don't have a blanket or a place to lay down... it's time to open up and care... to live the real deal... just... to do it. It can save a life... maybe many lives. help...

  13. Diablo X Machina

    Getting Annie Lenox was a stroke of genius. This is such a hard song to sing, and she one of the few that can pull it off with Bowie.

  14. p impastato

    💟💟💟💟💟💟💟

  15. daniela fornasier

    fantastici

  16. Nathan Turner

    God I never thought I'd hear anyone sing this song as well as Freddie but Annie Lennox is the one to really do justice to this song. Her feminine voice actually does this song a unique justice.

  17. Mr.skelloton

    This vid was made the gay I was boron June 7 2010

  18. Valerie Liebe

    Magnifique

  19. Vera V.N.M.V

    Tinha o dvd desse show, ele viveu a história do rock, não sou gay mas acho ele bonito, tipo uma admiração do que queria ser

  23. dave miller

    Annie Lennox always tried to not look pretty. She was tired of always getting attention from her looks. It's why she shaved her head. Somehow Annie never really succeeded in her quest to not look pretty.
    Annie has an amazing voice. People who don't like what she did here should just remember that Freddie had a totally unique style to his vocal ability. You could put the most amazing vocal talent on stage for this song with Queen and Bowie, and it just wouldn't be the same as Freddie.
    Give her a break. As talented as she is, that was a tough job no matter how you cut it. Would have been tough for anyone.

  24. Ponja KamiKaze

    Perfection ,perfection ,perfection.......

  25. Gary 65

    Can I love Bowie any more. He was a legend and just....wonderful.

  26. Bryan Mejia

    No es lo mismo sin freddie

  27. tencui STUPID

    Yoshikage Kira is a good singer but not as good as Freddie

  41. Jack Soley

    1:48 that smile is worth a trillion dollars

  42. Rona Mercury

  43. Rona Mercury

  47. Mina Hoffmann

  51. Franco Contreras

    Como me duele esta joya de canción sin la voz de Mercury ..

  52. Adnan sharique

    1:41 the crowd sang Te de de for Freddie

  53. Yu Shelby

    It seems like John is not happy being there. He looks so sad. We can’t blame him, we all miss Freddie.

  54. Yu Shelby

    I hate how the female ruined the song. David Bowie should have sang solo.

  55. cereal with no milk

    anybody who doesn't like this is an uncultured swine.

  56. Quirs

    Wow didn't know Yoshikage Kira was singing.

  57. Declan Argue

    A beautiful thing

  58. Mania28

    When people watched through their eyes instead of through a phone screen.

  59. Christian Navelgas

    So sad rock musicians are dying off and quick
    -john lennon
    -George harrison
    -freddie mercury
    -David bowie
    -Prince
    And many more, we need to appreciate them why they are here, let's be honest and as sad as it is Elton John's days are becoming numbered, feel free to mention others who have died in the last 30 years or so

  65. Indrajeet Keer

    Performers. Real Singers. And Look how today's Lip Syncing Generation of Singers Fools Audiences In their Concerts

    Pressure pushing down on me
    Pressing down on you no man ask for
    Under pressure
    That burns a building down
    Splits a family in two
    Puts people on streets

    It's the terror of knowing
    What this world is about
    Watching some good friends
    Screaming get me out
    Tomorrow takes me higher
    Pressure on people
    People on streets

    Day day day
    Okay

    Chippin' around
    Kick my brains round the floor
    These are the days
    It never rains but it pours

    People on streets
    People on streets

    It's the terror of knowing
    What this world is about
    Watching some good friends
    Screaming let me out
    Tomorrow takes me high, high, higher
    Pressure on people
    People on streets

    Turned away from it all
    Like the 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

    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, give love, 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 our last dance
    This is ourselves
    Under pressure
    Under pressure
    Pressure

  87. Amal Ahiywat

    I love ❤️ David Bowie

  88. Bud Hilf

    Doesn't matter how many times I watch this, it still gives me chills.

  89. Rusty Wiimote

    Why is Yoshikage Kira singing under pressure

  90. Al O. Veera

    People using their hands to clap. Never seen before.

    Facu Maresca

    I know, right?! What an original way of clapping

  91. Aimee Thomson

    .....can't clear the dress

  92. Dan The Man

    Sad that John Deacon retired from Queen hecwould have been a good bass player.

  93. Erick Guzman ayon

    Es hombre o mujer ese men?

  94. Paulie V

    Am I the only one who notices that at the end she was trying to kiss David then he turned and said under pressure idk maybe just me lol

    Alvin Wu

    of course you are not😊

  95. AronyYT FCBarcelona

    Es lo mismo pero más barato

  96. Paul Flipse

    So, this just brought me to tears. I wasn't expecting this. Just, the emotions, Annie reacting to the audience singing Freddy's scat singing, her holding Bowie so tightly while singing about their last dance, Freddy's last dance... so beautiful.

  97. First name Last name
