SmS#71: Happy Birthday Bowie

8 Jan

Today is a day to celebrate a legend. On this day 65 years ago, David Robert Jones was born. Without a doubt my favourite artist of all time celebrates his birthday today so let’s rejoice at his amazing contribution to music over the past 40 years. It’s only fair then that I gather some of my favourite tunes from his wonderful career. Whether it’s from his early psych-folk Space Oddity days, or from his Ziggy Stardust glam rock pomp, the soul-funk Thin White Duke era, his truly brilliant and reclusive Berlin trilogy, his take on 80’s pop superstardom or his trip into drum n bass in the 90’s (maybe not the latter). Looking back, it’s amazing to see the work the man has produced, I just  can’t imagine what music would sound like today without his legacy. Enough of the flattery, enjoy his music for yourself!  Here is the best of David Bowie.
