By now, most of you would have read the sad news that David Bowie has lost his 18 month battle with cancer. His impact on the world will remain forevermore.
Well known for his alter ego Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie’s hits include Starman, Space Oddity, Heroes, Under Pressure, Rebel Rebel and Life on Mars and many many more.
For now, we take a look at his latest work, which, according to his producer and friend Tony Visconti is intended to be a parting gift to the world.
Our personal favorite here in the LMG office is Space Oddity. Which hearing it now sends shivers down our spines.
To get a real sense of David’s haunting vocals listen to the ‘vocal only’ section taken from his 1972 hit ‘Starman’ below.
Then listen to the original recording below. Wow!
