David Bowie Low LP Feb 23 2018 reissue/ pre-order   (Parlophone)

David Bowie may be physically gone from this earth since January 10th, 2016 when the sad news of the iconic artist’s sudden death from cancer shocked the world. But in the 25 months since his passing (exactly 2 days following his 69th birthday & the release of his 25th album Blackstar - also on 180 gram vinyl/LP) David Bowie, as an omnipresent artist in popular culture, appears to be as alive (if not more so) than anytime in the multihyphenate artist's illustrious, ever-changing, five-decade career; with 2018 already shaping up to be The Year of Bowie. Hence the following David Bowie 2018 Top Six list.



#6: As the David Bowie Official Twitter account, in conjunction with the image above, tweeted last week:
History has been made with the very emotional launch of @elonmusk’s midnight cherry Tesla Roadster car into space, with David Bowie’s Life on Mars as the soundtrack, and a chap called Starman in the driving seat” in reporting the SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket launch that cost SpaceX CEO Elon Musk $90million. Included in that price tag was the cost of the attached $100,000 Tesla Roadster with its Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy "Don't Panic" dashboard sign and the car sound system reportedly playing Bowie’s “Space Oddity” on repeat mode for its long journey toward Mars’ orbit.
