Gay Icons Freddie Mercury & David Bowie, lift us up! We’re “Under Pressure”

It may seem like a lifetime, but it’s ONLY been two weeks since the “Tyrant and Chief” took office.  But we will not be bowed! We will not give up! We WILL prevail, “under pressure,” as the great gay icons Freddie Mercury and David Bowie sang!

In the face of the tyranny, oppression and injustice in America, we need more messengers and the messages like these luminaries who sang about the way to get through life “Under Pressure.”  It’s a little mind boggling to think that they didn’t know what it was really going to be like today.  This fabulous “classic” now seems prophetic.  Um ba ba be…

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 breaking

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

Because love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the (People on streets) edge of the night
And loves (People on streets) 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
