"Got Me Under Pressure" is a song by ZZ Top from their 1983 album Eliminator. The song was produced by band manager Bill Ham, and recorded and mixed by Terry Manning. David Blayney (ZZ Top's stage manager of 15 years), in his book Sharp Dressed Men described how the song was pre-produced: Billy Gibbons and Linden Hudson (Houston engineer and songwriter) wrote the whole song and created a recorded demo all in one afternoon without either Dusty Hill (ZZ Top bass player) or Frank Beard (ZZ Top drummer) even knowing about it. Linden created the bass on a synthesizer, created drums on a drum machine and helped Billy Gibbons write the lyrics; Billy performed the guitars and vocals.
Besides Eliminator, "Got Me Under Pressure" also appears on the following compilations.
|U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks||18|
