Rock n Roll Suicide is such an underrated Bowie song. It's a great ending to the Ziggy Stardust album but also holds out a message of hope. Personally, it has helped me through so much.

What makes "Blackstar" extraordinary is that Bowie turned dying into art. He knew he was on the verge of death and he did the one thing he knew he could rely on: He wrote songs. About life and death, his own and in general. It's a fitting end to a unique career.

I still have such a hard time listening to it. I was a fan since Let's Dance in my early childhood, and he shaped the person I grew into on so many levels. When an album came out, I got it, full stop, because even if I didn't get it initially I always found things to love over time. Blackstar came out, and my non-Bowie-fan family were raving about it. I resolved to pick it up the first chance I got. I was set to teach my first ever course as a professor. That morning my phone blew up with condolences as if I'd lost a family member, and I will never forget fighting not to cry that whole day, trying to keep it together. It's been years now and I can't get past Lazarus. It destroys me every time.

I was a HUGE Bowie fan at thirteen. Probably becos Ziggy. When I heard about David's death, I heard. my husband on the phone to our phone. I remember hearing "Someone's going to have to tell her." I came downstairs for my cup of coffee. My husband said, "Wait a minute. I have to tell you ... David Bowie died last night." I felt electricity prickling all over my body, before I passed out. (This from a woman who had gone through 3 DAYS of labor birthing my 12 lb. baby boy.) I have never recovered.. oh, God, if you actually exist, bring back my David!

God, the release of Blackstar was a weird time. It was coming out and there were really positive reviews pre-release about how it was this jazzy and dark album that feels simultaneously like a throwback to his early years and forward thinking. I actually hadn't listened to any of Bowie's work, but I was getting hyped so I downloaded all his albums and blitzed through them so that I could listen to Blackstar when it dropped (skipping from Let's Dance to Black Tie White Noise, based on the reputation of his middle albums). I fell in love with his music, and then immediately fell in love with Blackstar. It really did feel like an exciting new direction for a singer with a LONG discography. And then he died, and the conversation around the album instantly shifted from "what's next in Bowie's post-haitus post-Blackstar career" to "so, death was a prominent theme in that work, huh?" It's now considered his final artistic statement, and the album is certainly good enough and appropriate enough to warrant that, but I do miss those short two days in between the album dropping and his death, when the Blackstar wasn't a full stop, but the beginning of a new sentence.

@Hidbid Blackstar seems as if it is a reflection on his life, and many lyrics seem to hint towards his death. 'Look up here man, I'm in heaven' and I can't give everything away appears to reference back to ' A new career in a new town' on low through the harmonica in the intro. It appears to be Bowie's final goodbye, a reflection on his life and the world.

I think what the narrator wanted to say about the Let’s Dance album is “Yes, it sounds INCREDIBLY 80s. But Let’s Dance has aged extremely well because of the fact that when you combine the talents at the level of David Bowie, Nile Rodgers, Tony Thompson, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, great results are bound to happen.”

While I agree that his first album was a little hit and miss (leaning towards the miss), I feel it's unfair to dismiss the Space Oddity record as more of the same outside of the title track and CC. Such an enchanting listen: Unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed is a great forshadowing of Bowie's longer, less straight-forward songs; Letter to Hermione is intimate and gorgeous; and Janine is some good pop songwriting. Where his Debut felt a lot like a young David Jones writing songs, Space Oddity feels to me like the first David Bowie album.
Brett Andrews

@David Evans If you’re down with his debut album, I’d highly recommend the Bowie at the Beeb compilation. The songs themselves are great, but it’s the interview chatter in between them on Disc 1 that makes the work a gem. “Unwashed”, and “Janine” are there, along with “Cygnet Committee” and “Amsterdam”. I think that the compilation is on Spotify.

Totally agree. Memory Of A Free Festival, Wild-Eyed Boy From Freecloud, God Knows I'm Good, An Occasional Dream, Unwashed... are all good songs. And there are some baroque pop gems on the debut as well, thinking of Sell Me A Coat or Love You 'til Tuesday, which has remained a popular song in Bowie's catalogue.

I think the first 2 albums are quite underrepresented in this video. Like any good music, the more you listen to it, the more you understand about it, and the greater it becomes. Hunky dory is one of the greatest albums I've ever listened to, but I didn't think much of it the first time I heard it. Now im addicted to it.
Joey / Saturn ♡
I totally agree on the album part, but personally I am a bit shocked that no one has mentioned Memory Of A Free Festival yet. I absolutely adore this track - I was taken aback the first time I ever heard it. I think it's beautiful through and through, and it's definitely one of my favorite songs on that album.

I remember the day he passed. I’d just finished Blackstar the day before, it was just a normal afternoon when I heard what happened, and I legit cried. It was about half a year before I ever listened to Blackstar again, and my god it just hit so much differently. It seemed to me that Bowie was well aware that his time was near, and he wanted to leave what was the equivalent of his own eulogy for the rest of us. It’s tragic, but a beautiful sendoff to one of my favorite artists

Out of all Bowie's albums, "Low" is probably my favorite. I didn't know about it until I watched some video on YT and then decided to listen to the Berlin Trilogy. Before doing so I knew most of his classic era and some songs from early 80s, so I had some idea how Low would sound like, and then - I was completely blown away. Brian Eno's influence on this album is fenomenal with use of synths, phase was good with great singles on side A and instrumental movie-soundtrack-like songs on B. They fell like taken straight of a sci-fi movie and I'm really sad they didn't appear in "Man who fell down to Earth" as they were meant to be. Other two albums of the trilogy don't even come close to "Low", especially "Heroes", which, in my opinion, is overrated. It has songs that feel different than anything in Bowie's career. I especially love "Warszawa", which I have a special attachment to, as Warsaw is where I was born and live. How he made this song sound both sad and full of hope is mindblowing, truly how 70s Warsaw would feel to a foreigner. In conclusion, Bowie's discography and "Low" is among one of the most influential albums in his career

Some of the posthumous live releases are sublime. Personal favourites are "Welcome to the Blackout", which IMHO is a better document of an Isolar 2 tour show than Stage and "I'm Only Dancing" which is Diamond Dogs tour period after he went soul. The rawness and clarity of the sound on both is absolutely incredible.

It's the exact same set list. But Stage was messed with in the studio while mixing and stuff Welcome to the Blackout is straight from the board. It's what he sounded like exactly at that moment. Very cool Cracked Actor is another post death live one that's got the same set list as David Live. It's also better than the original for the same reason

Never really paid attention to Bowie until I watched The Prestige and thought “Wow, this actor playing Tesla is great, who is this guy?” Edit: Having now listened to his entire discography multiple times, David Bowie is a damn legend. My personal favorites being Blackstar, Low, Ziggy, Hunky Dory, and Heroes with the title tracks of Heroes and Blackstar being my favorite songs of his. Heathen, Black Tie, Earthling, Young Americans, and Lodger are albums I also loved that aren't generally considered his "best". Such a great career and still oddly underrated simply because his hits are so overplayed at this point.

Ok, so Monsters is uneven, but Ashes to Ashes has the most unique sound palette of any commercially successful song. It’s my personal favourite Bowie track, and one of the greatest songs of all time. Also, Station to Station… before you finished saying the first Station I already wanted to listen to it. What an absolute beast of an album, what a stunning title track. What a shame it was at such a low personal point i in his life.

I actually like Lodger a lot, have listened to him today. It's a piece without a major hit and then, unmemorable. But it's really diverse and with different harmonies and pitched that catch me and want me to listen it in a loop. I understand that people don't care too much, specially compares with most memorables like the 2 previous others, but give it a chance. Easilly, is on my top 5 Bowie albuns.

i think blackstar might be one of the greatest musical achievements ever quite honestly. to do a record of such quality while suffering and having it be one of the best of your career, better than probably anything you did in the last 25 years at least, is insane to me. and then to have a lot of the album reflecting on your life, as if you know your time’s ending, and then having it release and passing away shortly after - this is all just fascinating to me. i feel slightly inappropriate in saying that the album and its timing was a miracle, but i think it is. it’s really horrible that he died, but i think the fact that he did an exited with such a monumental and reflective statement is transcendent. i don’t think any other artist ever will do what David did by releasing blackstar. it’s as if he made the stars align for that moment, and made the universe take him on his own terms. because of all of this, i think blackstar is one of the most fascinating albums to ever be released. there’s something about it that feels transcendent, like one of the most ultimate statements of art to me. i am not sure why it intrigues me this much, but it really does.

What's even more intriguing is that it sounds like the updated version of music from the year David was born. That has to be symbolic of the beginning and end of David's life meeting with jazz music. The most chaotic root genre for the most unpredictable artist of a century.

If I'm completely honest.. David Bowie '67 is on of my favourite albums. There's this peculiar kitsch to it that's oddly appealing. I actually listen to it a lot along with Glass Spider.

I can't say I would have listened to Blackstar if he hadn't died. I had become very bored with Bowie's albums since Earthling. But, the theme of the album is so apparent after his death. It's one of the albums where his lyrics seem clear now. "I know something is very wrong" , "Saying no but meaning yes", "That's the message that I sent", "I can't give everything away" wow. And it is an amazing album, and has caused me to revisit a lot of his older work I missed. Thats a silver lining to me.

Fun facts about Bowie: I live in the countryside of Tuscany and I'm Always Surprise about the three weird links between my homeland and David Bowie. 1) In the 60's, Italy had the trend to take British and american songs and make an italian cover of that Song by an italian singer (for example i suggest the Italian cover of Stones' Paint it black by Caterina Caselli). We have an Italian cover of space oddity sung in Italian by David Bowie with his strong British accent. It named "ragazzo solo, ragazza sola" and It isn't about space but It was about a teen love story. 2) He Lost a contest for young musicians in 1969 in Monsummano terme, which Is a city Very near to where I live. 3) He starred in an italian Western movie in the late 90's with Leonardo Pieraccioni, the Italian Adam Sandler. And this movie was also made very near where i live, in the Mountains of Tuscany. Sorry for the wot but i wanna share this trivia with someone

_"Leonardo Pieraccioni, the Italian Adam Sandler,"_ the TRvid commenter said with a straight face. So apparently that's a thing that happens to exist in reality. The same reality I live in. It's sometimes astonishing to realize the full extent of what humanity has gotten up to over the course of it's existence. It makes me genuinely happy to know there is an "Italian Adam Sandler." Something the world didn't know it needed....but thankfully, already has. And there sure as hell better be a Japanese Rob Schneider....and an Ethiopian Kevin Federline. The people of earth deserve that. at the very least. We've earned it. It's been a tough year.

Black Star is especially great if you consider the death. Check Polyphonic's video on why that is. It's so fitting as a last piece of music one puts out, it's insane. Cohen's last non-post-humous album, You Want It Darker, has the same feeling. They're introspective, calm somewhat?, tender, and really, really awesome.
He's one of the few musicians I love so dearly.

Bowie's acting career is absolutely fascinating in tandem with his musical career. The Man Who Fell to Earth and Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence are two that I think are particularly interesting

I’ve never really listened to David Bowie other than his hits but this has finally made me look into it after a very long 14 years of life being called Bowie. It’s astonishing I’m named Bowie and don’t even know many of his albums or his history. I’ve never met anyone else with the name Bowie though, has anyone met someone called Bowie? Im sure there’s more people out there somewhere.
I've been listening to "Outside" since 1995 and I keep finding new sounds and things in it. So dense. I feel fortunate that I so far have had 26 years to deep dive into what I believe is one of Bowie's (and Eno's) finest moments. Why it keeps being to underrated I don't understand. People don't WANT to get it. But they can if they would actually listen, I think.

Station to Station was one of the first cds I ever bought, and I really didn't even know who David Bowie was, I just knew I loved Wild is the Wind. Anyway, I could not believe how good it was, I listened to it on repeat for weeks. Then a couple years ago, I discovered that's when he was at his absolute rock bottom and honestly it makes me feel so strange. The album is a masterpiece, but it came at such a cost and so many people will never know, they'll just bop their heads and sing along, just like I used to.

Sound and Vision has become a sacrament for me. I listen to it as rarely as I can, when I feel like I really need to, and never twice in a row, and it's like an instant nirvana. I hope its magic lasts for as long as I live, because if it doesn't I have no idea how to replace it.

Great video! I wish you had touched on Bowie's fascination with the occult and mysticism though as it is a defining subtext to all of his works. If you really want to understand Blackstar read Transcendental Magic by Éliphas Lévi (it is listed as one of his top 100 books).

Blackstar, I would say, is a kind of underrated song and album. Edit (2 years later): Within You and Underground (both from Labyrinth) isn't too bad.

Stumbled on this and I am so happy I did. Love David Bowie, sang Starman to my son as a lullaby when he was a little baby, have Bowie lyrics tattooed on my arm, and my wife even bought be a wonderful Heroes themed piece of art for my birthday. The man was an icon and this deep dive captured that very well.

I liked The Laughing Gnome. His Anthony Newley phase is not to be ignored. I was scared to check this out because you are young and Bowie is such an icon. You did fine. Heathen is an amazing album. You didn't mention his time in Tin Machine. I wondered why that was. It's really important in understanding Bowie to mention that Tin Machine helped him take a break from the stuff in the 80's and get recentered. Once he did that, he was able to head into the 90's making music for himself, that he found interesting.

I was 12 when I was first heard Bowie singing Starman on tv and since then he has been a major part of my life. Can you imagine what it was like listening to those albums in the early years. For me , he was an alien who had come from nowhere with the most incredible lyrics and music. My favourite albums are Ziggy stardust, hunky dory, station to station, low, heroes and (sorry, I have to disagree with you) scary monsters. His last album Blackstar is also just stunning. I feel like my life has been so much better with David Bowie always there, I was shocked and beyond sad when he died.

My favorite Bowie songs and albums were the ones most heavily criticized. Curious. But he made his point objetcively. I think "Station to Station" is one of Bowie's best songs ever, and I absolutely love the album "Man of words, man of music" as a whole. And not considering "Hours" an absolute masterpiece, calling it "boring", actually shocked me, but I guess different people have different preferences. 🙂

Bowie also helped produce Lou Reed's Transformer album (classic), mixed the original version of Raw Power by The Stooges as well as co writing and producing Iggy Pop's albums 'The Idiot' and 'Lust For Life' (he also played a bunch of instruments on it and played keyboard on it's tour which can be heard on the Iggy Pop live album TV Eye) which are two of Iggy's best solo albums.

It's an interesting piece of trivia that not only did David Bowie remain life long friends with the boy who punched him in the eye during that school yard fight, but that he would collaborate with him on many of David Bowie's album covers. That's right, the boy who punched David Bowie in the eye is world renowned artist George Underwood.

27:15 Fun fact: David Bowie invented the music video with Love Me Till Tuesday. The closest thing before this is Bob Dylan in the video where he held up the lyrics to the song. David Bowie got the inspiration for music videos from learning how to mime, and he used that to make video performances where he would mime the lyrics to his own songs.

Bowie has been my favorite artist for the last several years and at this point I think he affected my personality more than my own parents haha. My favorite record of his is probably the song heroes, as well as the album, also five years from ziggy stardust, and black star the album, of course. Rip. He was truly a legend and a genius.

Watching this I kept thinking that I will give a listen to more of his music, and that there was a great musicanship involved - but also that he was incredibly ambitious and wanted to be on top of the world artistically. In some sense, music was just a tool to do this. But there are actually few artists who have this strong drive and who don't stop when they reach success. This is why he would never simply repeat himself. Thanks for the video!
