Under Pressure

Hello. I realize that many of you are in the midst of your midterm/hell week(s), so I appreciate your taking the time out to visit my page. You can always chill here to relax for a bit, maybe get some insight into my interests, such as music.

Since it is the midterm season for you Berkeleyans, I have a perfect song that you can all relate to. It’s called “Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie. Queen, in case you don’t know, is one of the greatest rock bands in history.

Click here using your scroll wheel (new tab), check out the lyrics below, and enjoy!

Note: all lyrics are property of the original band and record companies. I, unlike Vanilla Ice, am not apt to rip off other people’s songs.

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

That’s OK
It’s the terror of knowing what this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming “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 (twice)

It’s the terror of knowing what this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming “Let me out!”
Pray tomorrow – gets 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
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…..
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

So keep your heads up. Midterms, finals, and school will be over soon. Don’t forget to stop and chill occasionally. Good luck!

Awesome songs at randomtidbitsofthought.wordpress.com.
