One day in 1981 David Bowie and Queen found themselves in a recording studio somewhere in Switzerland. The intent was to lay down vocals for “Cool Cat,” but Bowie got bored with the task at hand and suggested writing a new song from scratch instead. According to Freddie Mercury biographer Mark Blake, the iconic musicans thus embarked on a 24-hr wine and cocaine fueled marathon session that resulted in the musical gem that Vanilla Ice definitely didn’t copy in “Ice, Ice Baby”. Someone has isolated the vocals of these two Rock legends, creating an a-capella rendition that will take your breath away. No autotune needed.


Happy 71stIf, Starman.
