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

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.

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;

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

@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.

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.

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.
