One of the greatest musicans of all time, and the only man that can make sexual ambiguity look badass: David Bowie.

Guy's great. He can even make Brad sound like a heart clenching hottie.

Ground control to Major Tom: This thread is awesome!

Should have linked it to the Bowie page. Life on mars is always my first Choice of song in Singstar.  Love Ziggy Stardust and Low albums even if some fucker i used to know stole them both.

@AltonBrown: Holy shit. I knew I've seen that image around here. Didn't realize it was your avatar. 
@nicklott: I'm thoroughly convinced that Low is the greatest album of the 70s.

I fully approve of this thread, and think it needs more Life on Mars:

By having to edit my post like 5 times. Image and video embedding is still pretty buggy.

David Bowie is awesome. Labyrinth is one of my favorite movies thanks to him. :)

And let's appreciate some of the man's acting, particularly his southern accent:

Straight up, this is one of the main reasons I'm really considering buying DJ Hero right now. All because of Bowie.

You know you have won your point when someone steals it from you, makes it his avator with a thinly veiled threat that there will be no fucking arguement. 
My favorite album was Aladinsane. Panic in detroit and Cracked actor, 2 great rockers. Other works of his varies from unbelievable in this reality, to bleh. So cool that Major Tom was at the end of Alan Wake.  
Also this;

And let us appreciate Jermaine Clement's amazing impression of the man followed by a Flight of the Concords tribute:  

#32 Posted by cap123 (2477 posts) -

One of the best men who has ever lived. 

#33 Posted by yakov456 (1935 posts) -

Labyrinth Bowie is awesomeness.

#34 Posted by Jonathan (664 posts) -

Best album of the 70s.
#35 Posted by Blair (2532 posts) -

I love David Bowie.  Huge fan.  What an amazing artist.

#36 Posted by MHumphreys89 (730 posts) -

I enjoyed watching him play as Nikola Tesla in the Prestige and i'm looking forward to play Space Oddity in Rock Band 3. : D

#37 Posted by supermike6 (3656 posts) -

 I love David Bowie, especially Space Oddity.

#38 Posted by Bruce (5264 posts) -
"Heroes" dude..."Heroes".
#39 Posted by DrBeardface (263 posts) -

Duders, I am going to tear up some Space Oddity in Rock Band 3!  CANNOT WAIT!!!
@ nicklott  You beat me to posting it!  I absolutely loved that song when I first heard it, a fitting tribute to a crazy awesome musician.

#40 Posted by Helushune (212 posts) -

  I appreciate David Bowie's magical balls...

    ... Oh, and his music.  That too.
#41 Posted by ThePickle (4183 posts) -

I celebrate the man's entire catalogue.  

#42 Posted by Synthballs (2193 posts) -

I saw his name and "the Hearts Filthy Lesson" came into my head. Thanks a lot. Love it.

#43 Posted by Video_Game_King (36271 posts) -

As the top editor of the David Bowie page, I appreciate him.

#44 Edited by Jonathan (664 posts) -
@Bruce: It's amazing, don't get me wrong, but Low is a more consistent album. The Idiot was the only relatively bad thing David Bowie was involved in during that time. Controversial opinion, I know.
#45 Posted by Wintermute (53 posts) -

Of all the Queen songs in Rock Band I enjoy singing Under Pressure the most. And I have to say, I'm almost as excited to play Space Oddity in RB3 as I am to play Bohemian Rhapsody.  
We should all thank the rock gods that David Bowie wasn't crushed under the mountain of drugs he must have consumed in the 70's and 80's.

I'm always on board for a Sovereign appreciation thread. 
Oh, and I guess his tunes are pretty great too.
#48 Posted by probablytuna (3898 posts) -

Sound and Vision is probably my favourite Bowie song. 
Also, Cat People (Putting Out Fire) is a recent favourite because of its inclusion in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

#49 Posted by sins_of_mosin (1539 posts) -

I'm Afraid of Americans is pretty good. 
#50 Posted by tranquilchaos (576 posts) -
