I was on the tube after work, travelling back home. Someone was reading a newspaper, flipping through it quickly. It was crowded, but I thought I caught a glimpse – something about “David Bowie RIP”. My mind reeled. Was I mistaken? Was it some sort of gimmick for his new album? I waited, peering around commuters, but the man did not turn back to that page for me to double check. Then I recalled a text message received earlier, but could not check at the time. With trepidation, I checked it and – sure enough- it expressed shock at the loss of David Bowie. Still hard to believe, considering I just bought his new album and Key and I discussed him over the Christmas break, and in particular the large Bowie book I got as a gift. I first caught a glimpse of him back in 1972, when I was watching the news with my Grandmother, and I’ve been fascinated with him ever since – always will be. RIP. You will be missed.
This compilation is dedicated to your genius.
Mojo just published “David Bowie’s 100 Greatest Songs”. I’m somewhat disappointed with it, so I’ve compiled my very own playlist! Hope you enjoy it; and why not compile and share your Bowie playlist TODAY?
