    Ok here is a singing duet question

    Has anybody been blown apart worst that David Bowie when he sang under pressure with Freddy Mercury. Freddy was awsome, some I tunes baby I forgot about it.
    All I've ever asked of my Marines is for them to obey my orders as they would the word of God.

    Do you know what Nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent,

    I think Bowie did a great job in the duet with Freddy Mercury in Under Pressure. And so did Mercury with Bowie, of course. Their performances meshed both emotionally and musically. A very good record.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    Freddy is the man(?), but he can't top Bing as top dueter to Bowie.
    Escalate. Always escalate.

    What does this mean? Is it good or bad to be "blown apart worst that" something happened?

    I like the song and both singers. Actually caught a Queen concert from Montreal in 1981 on PBS the other night. Freddy's outfits and dance moves were awesome! At one point there were about 10 beers sitting on the piano.

    The fact that Mercury and Bowie are so different in terms of their vocal timbre and nuance is what makes that song work so well.

    On the other hand, Vanilla Ice is an a$$bag.
    Oh, I've been in the film business for a while, but I just can't seem to get one in the can.

    O-kay, who'd like a banger in the mouth? Right, I forgot, here in the States, you call it a *sausage* in the mouth.

    David Bowie and Bing Crosby, now that's a duet.

    Or what about David Bowie and John Lennon? Sometimes I can't tell which is which.
