Of all the recent music biz deaths in the past year or so... I'm feeling this loss the most right now. What a unique talent.

Years ago I was keeping tabs on a Best Songs of All-Time Countdown on a Toronto radio station.  In the States, "Stairway to Heaven" or "Hey Jude" always seemed to take the cake, but in Toronto, it was Space Oddity at #1.  Good for you, Canada.

Should I rate this highly because it's a very good tune — or downrate it because I heard it on FM at least 4,267 times, there is nothing new to hear here, and if I were never to f'ing hear it again I would not miss it?

Most of the time I am glad that I do not live in the NE seaboard of the USA.  But there are exceptions, times when I do wish I lived there.  So much great art.....

The moon is about 240,000 miles away, so that's about 42% of the distance.  I assume this song was inspired by the Apollo 11 mission, but "million" could have added more drama.

Same here.

Always thought that this was about junk (heroin).  Could be wrong.

Always happy that I do not like opiates.  Bad enough with tobacco, coffee, weed,....

saw Lady Gaga's Bowie tribute on the Grammys last night
she seemed kind of corny
she did a  dozen songs chopped into pieces 
that's the norm for tributes
but just made for bad TV 
Nile Rodgers sure looked cool
and sounded good
the best part was the beginning
when Gaga's face changed paintings for all the different Bowie characters

I thought the one-two punch of Heathen/Reality was pretty amazing so late in his career, long after most of his contemporaries were doing the nostalgia casino circuit, or worse. Bowie was the shit, from start to finish. We'll never see the likes of him again.

Very sad to lose Mr. Bowie.  Much too young.  Will schedule my lung X Ray today.
