Sunday Samples 258

January 8, 2012

It’s David Bowie’s birthday today, so how about his collaboration with Queen — “Under Pressure” — featured in indieish movies like It’s Kind of a Funny Story, World’s Greatest Dad, and Grosse Pointe Blank, and mangled by Vanilla Ice.

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 friend scream “Let me out”
Pray tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people, people on streets

Chippin’ 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 gets me high high high
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 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 light, 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
