Saturday Night Live Music: "Under Pressure"

There are very few huge, "event" concerts that I genuinely wish I could attend or could have attended...but this tribute to the late Freddie Mercury twenty years ago really makes we wish I could have found myself in London in 1992. For this performance, in particular. "Under Pressure" is such a brilliant pop song in part because David Bowie and Mercury were both top-flight male pop vocalists...and to put the incomparable Bowie along with Annie Lennox, who is one of the finest female pop singers of the whole recording era, singing this song...well, it's just incredible fun.
