I am clearly biased - review and investigate his career he was an outstanding genius way ahead of his time his music will live for years and years and years, to say nothing of his guitar playing his saxophone playing his songwriting ability his lyrical ability etc exploring him more and you will find more granted he stands on the shoulders of those who came before him but he stands taller than almost all

This was the first song of his that hooked me- still have the single- sorry to hear of his passing today 1-11-16. RIP to a great and unique artist that changed music.

Bowie has some great tunes, but what in the hell was that duet with Mick Jagger all about? It was a cover of Dancing In The Street and it really sucked.... on the verge of being gay, actually!

Play well also in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

This is THE song that made US Bowie fans. It still can play. Also still The King of Cool.

confession: i'm only now learning to properly appreciate david bowie. he wrote and played a lot of really remarkable stuff. another unique voice from the golden age. another guy who slipped by me on the freeway when i was listening to someone else. damn, i've got to drive more carefully. i'm trying to finish this comment as fast as i can to be able to write something about ronstadt's different drum. damn it, i missed it. everytime i hear it, i just have to say something. boring? sorry.

Bowie left Earth as a happily married presumably monogamous Major Tom and returned to exact his promiscuous bisexual revenge as Ziggy Stardust.
