This song rocks so much | Reviewer: Matthew C to the L | 11/28/08
Two "icons" of classic rock - Queen and David Bowie perform this song, obviously put their whole heart into it, and now we have a masterpeice. It even has a positive message, that may be interpreted several different ways, providing all of us a way to relate in our own ways... My overall fav song of all time.
Respect Mercury | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/16/08
As a heterossexual woman, I can totally relate to this song, these lyrics. I never thought this song had to do with gay love. In my opinion, it has to do with modern life and its difficulties. And also the lack of love. Like "Love? Why bother?!". Queen are not my favourite band but they sure have great lyrics. This is my favourite from them... because, again, I really really relate. I didn't read the whole discussion, but I can tell you Mercury deserves a lot more respect than many heterossexuals.
Great Song... and He may be Gay but he was very religious | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/15/08
Freddie Mercury may be gay but all of his songs have a good religious backing to them. As for "Under Pressure" it talks about how we must learn how to love our neighbors which is THE commandment in the Bible. So I understand that being gay is a bad thing but still give the man some credit for being very religious. BTW God forgives sins.
Seriously...what the hell? | Reviewer: ...the hell? | 11/7/08
As previously stated...what the hell? Can a dead homosexual man have no peace? We have the Jesus freaks basically LECTURING the homophobic morons who can't respect Freddie Mercury as a musician and a homosexual. The man was obviously more self aware than either of these parties (the Jesus monkies and the common southern moron) As a southern man myself I find this sick. I commend the "Christians" for standing up for a departed musician, but you're going about it all wrong. I read a few pages back...Hillary someone was talking about "God" shoving a pineapple in "Anal Pressure"'s rectum. Okay...what's wrong with that? Anyone? "Anal Pressure" EASILY won the little spat because "Hillary" was infuriated with someone on the INTERNET. Hello? IT'S THE DAMNED INTERNET! Let people speak their narrow minded little opinions and such, as many of my friends and I love to say, "You're free to state your opinion, but by the same token I can simply ignore it." Let karma come and kick them in the ass. If they speak ill of others, eventually someone is going to beat the living tar out of them. That's retribution. Not waiting on some "judgement day". I'm no atheist nor am I a "Christian" there's too much wrong with both of these little groups. I believe in God, but I believe he doesn't really pay much mind to what goes on here on this blue little hell hole. Freddie Mercury was a true inspiration to dozens of other musicians, myself included. I've spoken to the man perhaps once or twice before his untimely passing due to the terrible disease AIDS. He will be sorely missed by all of us here on earth. Freddie Mercury is jamming with the stars now.

stop it... | Reviewer: Anyman | 11/7/08
The beauty of a great song, written by a great artist is the universal reach. It's NOT about the the south,it's NOT about gay love..It's about LIFE, it's about the shit we do that destroys lives and love. It's about whatever you feel when you hear it.
in regards to the comments below mine | Reviewer: cmm | 10/28/08
Okay. One, 'Under Pressure' is about gay love. It has absolutely nothing to do with the south. If anybody doesn't already know this, Freddie Mercury was gay, and you should respect this song and not offend its message, especially when its writer died of AIDS. Get some maturity, get an IQ of more than ten, and get real. Two, in regards to the nuke message, for anyone who might take this creep seriously, he/she clearly isn't aware that nuclear bombs let off this amazing energy called 'radiation' that causes radiation poisoning, multiple forms of cancer, and several other diseases, most of which, if not deadly, are highly detrimental to health. Radiation also happens to go through solid objects quiet easily, so a barrier would do absolutely no good and this person clearly isn't aware of the fact that lead is the only radiation resistant substance in the world and there isn't enough in the world to even cover South Carolina, let alone the entirety of the South, not to mention you'd need to put a dome over it. Three, there aren't any nuclear silos in the South because it is, in its entirety, a swampy cesspit, hence why it was so good for growing cotton and slavery. Nuclear silos weigh a lot, and it isn't a good idea to put the most powerful bombs in the world in a place where they would sink and undoubtedly detonate. Imagine the Leaning Tower of Pisa becoming the next Hiroshima or Nagasaki. All of the silos are in the Rockies or the desert where there is solid bed rock, in case my southern opponent can't even find his/her own state on the map.
And do not even get me started on this person's grammer and spelling. Hope that they never get in a position of power, and hope to hell that they never become a teacher. If they are already, then all I can say, and i'm an atheist, is god help us. GO OSU! SEC sucks!
Why? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/22/08
Why do you people always have to make these things into big arguments? Can't you just enjoy good music? Oh, by the way, I didn't mean anything racist by 'you people' merely referring to all the contentious commentors.
what does this song have anything to do with the south? | Reviewer: not racist, informist. | 10/14/08
and another thing where do you get off saying such bad things about the south? slavery wasnt about putting one type of person over another it was about cheap labor. and if you think that way then you must hate illeagal mexicans that work for nothing to send it all to there familys as well is that it? heck eaven abraham lincoln wasnt against slavery! he was not an abolishonist at all! he even let slavery continue in the border line union states for some years after the emancipation proclomation so i say we put up barriers over the south and nuke ya'll! thats right i said ya'll! got a problem with it? piss off!

David Bowie | Reviewer: T | 5/30/08
As I recall David Bowie jammed with Queen before the final production and performance of this song, but he was not actually there to put the finishing touches and play the thing, so I don't include him in the respect I have for this song
OMG | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/28/08
That is the funniest most hypocritical thing I've read in quite some time. You say that you are so against bigotry and yet you condemn the entire "south" as if they are one entity and say that we should kill them. You call them seperatists when you are just adding to that mentality. Good job sir, you have just added to the ignorance and pointless hatred that you claim you despise.
the whole idea | Reviewer: nicole | 4/15/08
music is not made to make money, music is made to be listened to; by everyone. and if someone forces you to write something, then it has no soul and is doomed from the start. you have to love what you make, and freddie and david love their music. and they love people, to love their music. that's why in this song, when you listen to it, you can hear the love that they are trying to share, to give, to the world.
????????? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/5/08
If "god" is created in our own image, I'm sure he's a butt-fucker, right? This is why I'm pretty much a borderline atheist. Baseless information, false promises, and exagerated claims. There are way to many WASP's in this fucking country. Now I'm not an athiest, but I do believe in a higher power, and that's as deep is it goes.
Now that that is out of the way, I don't see this song as homosexual love. I see it as love in general. Also, whoever said David Bowie is bi, I'd like you to cite a CREDIBLE source for me, with a quote from David Bowie himself stating he is in fact bi. I think it's a bunch of bullshit. And I'd also like to tell everyone to just ignore the atrociousness of "anal pressure". Nothing but a seperatist "american" parasite (and I am aware I did NOT capitalize "america" and "god"). It enfuriates me that we have such an omnipresent prejudice and separatist mentality in our society these days. We should just make nuclear warhead-proof barriers around all the metropolitan cities and counties in the south and nuke the fuck out of the south, leaving the people that matter and aren't living in the 19th century alive.
As you can probably already tell, I loathe bigotry and discrimination and those who condone the less extremes of it (like telling a racist joke at the office). And this "anal pressure" is just concatenating to the ignorance of america. Well, not america, americans. I guess I don't hate america, just it's contents. Like the brainwashed shitheads and brainless yuppies that are allowed to roam the land without getting a bullet in the back of their heads, EXECUTION-STYLE. We need to fight fire with fire. Kill the fuckers rooting for death and destruction in the Middle East.
As a closing note, Under Pressure is the very best in soft rock, and probably rck in general. Right up there with Tom Petty's Free Falling and David Bowie's Space Oddity. And before you argue the interpretations in songs, remember that everyone has an opinion, and they are entitled to it. As I am entitled to my extremist opinion.
P.S. I can't wait to see the replies to this, and the story of adam and eve has got to be the most West Virginia-loving tale I've ever heard. The fact that we're all cousins is kinda "ick".
