David Bowie’s death left a huge mark in music industry due to his decades of contributions in music, fashion, and attempts in abolishing the toxic masculinity that surrounded his scene at one point of time. From being shy on stage, Bowie evolved before our eyes into the enigmatic performer behind hits like ‘Heroes’, ‘Space Oddity’ and a memorable duet with Queen for ‘Under Pressure’. The Brit even inspired indie giants Arcade Fire in many, many ways.

To celebrate his birthday this past 8th of January and to remember his passing today, Spotify created a playlist just for the big man, starting with ‘Life On Mars’, Bowie’s version of ‘All The Young Dudes’ side by side with ‘Lazarus’ taken from Blackstar, ending with ‘Where Are We Now?’, an emotional conclusion to the playlist and in a way, reflects his exit strategy.

According to Spotify, ‘Heroes’ is the most listened-to Bowie song due to its popularity after being being featured as the ‘tunnel song’ in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and an iconic beacon of hope for people worldwide during his prime, just above his legendary duet with Freddie Mercury ‘Under Pressure’, that was covered by My Chemical Romance x The Used. ‘Space Oddity’, which was used as soundtrack to Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty sits on the sixth spot just below ‘Rebel Rebel’.

If you’re a fan of Bowie, you might want to prepare tissues to go through this memory lane. Shine bright, Starman.
