It is hard to describe the magnitude of Bowie to the pop-art-fashion-culture landscape. To us he was a rock God that represented the hope that we could live our lives with color, candor, style, wit, and beauty. Hearing the news of his death was a gut punch of sadness.
As adults, both of us had our own individual encounters with Bowie. We shared these stories with each other as a way of trying to wrap our heads around his passing. We feel the best way to pay tribute to him is to share our favorite tracks. This is a man who had 111 singles—distilling our list to 13 songs (a baker’s dozen) was a melancholy task.
As many have already stated, the stars appear differently.
