    he came from stars, he was a starman.

    ..and now he is sitting with other stars...drinking and laughing.

    R.I.P. Starman... 'It's a God-awful sad affair,

    To the girl with the mousy hair. Whose mother had just said 'No' And her father has told her to go, But her friend is nowhere to be seen, Now she walks through her sunken dream To the seat with the clearest view Now she's hooked to the Silver Screen But the film is a maddening...

    This is a very sad loss.

    I was the right age at the right time for Bowie's big career surge in the 80s. The first major concert I ever went to was a David Bowie concert, and I saw him two other times as well. . In addition to music, he was a talented actor and visual artist. . This hurts, this really...

    Ever since the day David Bowie died,

    I've been playing my kids one song of his per day. I don't want his music to be lost by the next generation. I want them to experience a man who's music influenced my youth. I want them to experience a true musician, who is almost science fiction in his writing and who seemed to...

    Finally got to listen to his last album,

    Blackstar. It's a haunting, beautiful, towering work of art that emerges as a kind of void between life and death. I especially got a little choked up at the line "Look up here I'm in heaven". If you haven't listened to the album yet, DO, because it further demonstrates Bowie's...

    but I promise it won't be boring. I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human. I felt very puny as a human. I thought, "**** that. I want to be a superhuman. I'm an instant star. Just add water and stir. ~ David Bowie RIP...

    I had the privilege of growing up with David

    Bowie as a "mentor". I believe it was 1973 when he started a long term contract with RCA records for 60 million where he would record 10 albums (LPs) at that time an unheard sum of money. He became incredibly influential and yet somewhat taboo because of his declared bisexuality...

    Permission to sob uncontrollably?

    What a void in this man and his music is leaving behind. I always play his music on long car journeys and on holiday, and I always will. Rest in peace, Star Man & Goblin King.

    David Bowie is older now

    but he is so beautiful. My favorite is labyrinth. He was so beautiful I wish I could have danced with him in that ballroom scene. I also think he's very original and different regarding his songs https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0nSzSfmC4MI If anyone wants to be mesmerized :)
