Member Absolutely gutted to wake up to this news - it felt like a physical blow Sad

I think it's easy to underestimate how much Bowie meant to people given how much of a bolt out of the blue he was in the 70s. He opened the door for a lot of young people who were stuck in shit, boring, suburban lives to express themselves and embrace parts of themselves they might otherwise have had to suppress. We don't really have those kinds of figures in music any more, mainly because people like Bowie did it decades ago before anyone else had the balls.

He taught us all that we're not just one person for our whole lives; we continue to grow and develop and even have multiple selves inside. No wonder so many people are displaying such public grief; he affected many deeply disillusioned people at a formative age.

What a human.

Here is a tribute to Dave:

Member There are tributes all over the Internet, covering all aspects of his life and work.
Here is my contribution - a few lines from some of his lesser known songs that are particular favourites. These songs are from his earlier career.

Then I ran across a monster who was sleeping by a tree.
And I looked and frowned and the monster was me
- Width of a Circle

'Cause I'd rather stay here
With all the madmen
Than perish with the sad men roaming free
And I'd rather play here
With all the madmen
For I'm quite content they're all as sane
As me
- All the Madmen

I had no time to spare, I grabbed her golden hair
And threw her to the ground
Father, she craved my head, Oh Lord, the things she said
My God, she should be told
- She Shook Me Cold

Come on, come on, we've really got a good thing going
Well come on, well come on, if you think we're gonna make it
You better hang on to yourself
- Hang on to youself

Oh no love, you're not alone
You're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only
Make you care
Oh no love, you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone
- Rock 'n' Roll Suicide

Make me baby, make me know you really care
Make me jump into the air
- Moonage Daydream

The earth is a bitch
We've finished our news
Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay
- Oh You Pretty Things

I'm not a prophet or a stone age man
Just a mortal with the potential of a superman
I'm living on
- Quicksand


I gave Them life
I gave Them all
They drained my very soul
...dry
I crushed my heart
to ease Their pains
No thought for me remains there
Nothing can They spare
What of me?
Who praised Their efforts
to be free?
Words of strength and care
and sympathy
I opened doors
that would have blocked Their way
I braved Their cause to guide,
for little pay
- Cygnet Committee

And the hangman plays the mandolin before he goes to sleep
And the last thing on his mind
Is the Wild Eyed Boy imprisoned
'Neath the covered wooden shaft
- Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud

Let me put my arms
around your head
Gee, it's hot, let's go to bed
-Drive in Saturday

One day though it might
as well be someday
You and I will rise up all the way
All because of what you are
The Prettiest Star
- Prettiest Star

Touch the fullness of her breast.
Feel the love of her caress
She will be your living end
- Lady Grinning Soul

Found him slumped across the table.
A gun and me alone
I ran to the window. Looked for a plane or two
Panic in Detroit.
He'd left me an autograph
"Let me collect dust."
I wish someone would phone
- Panic in Detroit

Fleas the size of rats sucked on rats the size of cats
And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes
Coverting the highest of the sterile skyscrapers
- Future Legend

Boys, boys, its a sweet thing
Boys, boys, its a sweet thing, sweet thing
If you want it, boys, get it here, thing
'Cause hope, boys, is a cheap thing, cheap thing
-Sweet Thing

I'm having so much fun with the poisonous people
Spreading rumours and lies and stories they made up
Some make you sing and some make you scream
One makes you wish that you'd never been seen
- The Candidate

When you rock 'n' roll with me
No one else I'd rather be
Nobody here can do it for me
I'm in tears again
When you rock 'n' roll with me
- Rock n Roll with me

So deep in your room,
You never leave your room
Something deep inside of me
Yearning deep inside of me
Talking through the gloom
What in the world can you do
What in the world can you do
I'm in the mood for your love
- What in the World

She asked me to stay and I stole her room
She asked for my love and I gave her a dangerous mind
Now she's stupid in the street and she can't socialise
Well I love the little girl and I'll love her till the day she dies
- Scary Monsters

and, of course,

The Halloween Jack is a real cool cat
And he lives on top of Manhattan Chase
The elevator's broke, so he slides down a rope
Onto the street below, oh Tarzie, go man go
- Diamond Dogs
