Freddie Mercury: Queen and David Bowie wrote Under Pressure ‘when we were all drunk’ | Music | Entertainment

Bowie said: “Look, hang on a minute, why don’t we write one of our own?”

Freddie remembered: “We were fooling around and then just sort of jamming with tracks and suddenly we said ‘Why don’t we just see what we can do on the spur of the moment?’”

While producer Reinhold Mack added: “Then there’s the pressure of his majesty, David, being there, and everybody wanted to look suave and quick with ideas and stuff.”

Then bassist John Deacon came up with that famous riff of ding, ding, ding, de de, ding, ding, which Mack remembered he kept playing over and over again.
