We at Make’n Music came across this ditty that just HAD to be shared. Mind boggling.
Back in the summer of 1981, Queen and David Bowie happened to be recording material in separate studios in Montreux, Switzerland’s Mountain Studios. After a night of binge drinking and binge… um… sniffing… Queen and David Bowie came up with one of the most killer rock songs written in years. Below we have the unbelievable isolated vocal tracks from that song. This was before WAY before autotune and punching in your takes with ProTools. Just raw talent. Listen to Freddie Mercury’s vocals when he hits that “why… why…. whyyyyyyy” portion and then goes to a HIGHER note after that. Unbelievable. Kids, this is HOW IT’S DONE. Take notes.
