David Bowie died. A music legend, an icon, an artist…He was many things to many people. I knew him for certain songs. I could say some words about his life, but I’d rather you listen to him singing and see him performing.
Here are some David Bowie songs people should know:
“Tonight” with Tina Turner
“I’m Afraid of Americans”
“Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy” with Bing Crosby
and perhaps his biggest hit ever, “Let’s Dance”
Just listening to the variety of songs and styles David Bowie helped bring to the world you get an idea of what an interesting artist he was, right? It wasn’t just rock music. It was pop music, soul music, 1970s glam, 1980s new wave, 1990s industrial…and his last release, out now, has jazz leanings…Bowie did what a good rock star should do– keep people interested over time. Along the way he influenced countless other music makers, from Boy George to Lady Gaga, Kanye West to Prince, Patti Smith to Annie Lennox and the list could go on and on.
R.I.P. David Bowie. Thankfully, your long career provided us all with many, many songs to listen to for years to come. –Mark Weber Music Blog
