Weekend Playlist- David Bowie Edition

Weekend Playlist- David Bowie Edition

Legendary singer-songwriter, David Bowie has passed away peacefully in his sleep on 10th January, after a courageous battle against cancer. He was 69 years of age.

His Facebook page read as: "January 10, 2016 - David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief."

The star, who was known for his glam rock music and approach in life was battling cancer for the past 18 months. Coincidently, he released his 25th studio album, Black Star on Friday, January 8th.

The singer made a comeback when he released a new single on his 66th birthday, with a new album out in just a few weeks later. That album was the first in 10 years.

Let us pay homage to the fallen hero and may his soul rest in peace. Below is a list of all his outstanding numbers. Give it a listen:


Changes proved to the world how versatile David Bowie is. Reinvention is the lyrical theme and declares what could come out of David Bowie. The beautiful piano theme is delivered by Rick  Wakeman, in addition to Bowie’s best vocal delivery of all time.

Space Oddity

This song is David Bowie’s finest creation, and he was just 22 years of age when he released it. Lyrically, you can make a two-hour sci-fi film out of the five-minute song. The music is very futuristic for its time. Hence it is always counted as one of the most influential songs of all time.

The Man Who Sold The World

Again showing off Bowie’s versatile style, The Man Who Sold The World is one of his most haunting songs. A track of his third album, the song, unfortunately, largely went unnoticed, until its popularity grew when Grunge legends Nirvana and Scottish singer, Lulu, covered this song.

Young Americans

Featuring awesomely played Saxophone by David Sanborn and a Samba beat, the song beautifully displayed Bowie’s transition from Ziggy Stardust to Thin White Duke. The song contains a lyrical nod to the Beatles' "A Day in the Life" -- fitting, considering that John Lennon contributed to two other tunes on the album, including "Fame" and a cover of "Across the Universe."

Modern Love

One of David Bowie’s top 10 music and also a wedding dance floor favourite, Modern Love may very well be one of his most well-known pop song of his career. Also, featuring in this song is the great Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Five Years

Describing the Doomsday scenario, this song serves as an epic opening to Bowie’s classic album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust. The dark sense of panic of Bowie’s voice builds a chaotic escalation.
