>worthy of attention or notice; remarkable:
No, I'm pretty sure I'm right as nothing else deserves anything over a 2.5/5 at most.
It really isn't though. Everything after Ziggy just gets too focused on having an image (not that his early stuff doesn't have the same problem), and each album has it's own significant flaws.
I've never got around to listening to his music and now I just started crying with the song on this thread. Guess i'll postpone it some more.
Sorry for your loss, /mu/. May he rest in peace.
>there are people ITT who are actually crying
Get it together anons, fuck. It's not like he was your dad or something.
Just posting the superior version of Rock n Roll Suicide.
This is like 400 million times better than the version on Ziggy Stardust.
Get ready for some feels.
Lets get numb together.

rest in peace david bowie man
In honor of a great man I present the following joke:
David Bowie in the Labyrinth must be a postman. Why? Because he's got a huge package for you.
You are the very definition of a constant douchebag.
I have to wake up and go to college in two and a half hours, I haven't slept a wink. My day ends at noon tomorrow, should I just power through it?
Actually Aladdin Sane is the last good album between Ziggy and Young Americans. The ones in between, Pin-Ups and Diamond Dogs, are pretty trash, but then he only did good albums for another decade.
I knew this day was coming, but never wanted to see it
During that whole timespan between his heart attack and announcing Next Day three years ago, it felt like he was dying that whole time then he comes back, makes this big comeback
Now he releases Blackstar, an album that's like his eulogy and then he dies..I can see why he didn't tell anybody he was suffering from cancer
Here it is.
Because you were after it so badly.
Why am I crying /mu/
I never cried over people death and now I'm just like a little bitch can't stop crying
He was truly my favorite, bros.
The past five years I've journeyed through his discography, listened to it all, for better or worse. I've never had such an emotional connection to an artist. He had such a vivid imagination and he managed to capture it into his music and give it to us for all to hear. His eccentric personality helped too. Look at his interviews in the 70's and he's such a coked up qt. And with the end of his life, especially the video for Lazarus, you can see that he did this all intentionally as the ultimate form of artistic expression. He made his death something to be celebrated. We should not be sad. He knew his death was coming. Now he's free like the bluebird.
What are your favorite Bowie lyrics / moments?
Mine has to be Station to Station
"Once there were mountains on mountains and once there were sun birds to soar with and once I could never be down."
Well, David, now I'm kind of down.
I guess I'll go make some coffee and listen to Blackstar...
People only type they're crying because they can't properly articulate how they are feeling, they aren't (atleast I hope for their prides sake) crying
On the dad note my dad is dying atm and due to various personal reasons I feel much worse about bowie.
You're a faggot you cry though, have some dignity.
Same here bro.
Usually hearing some overhyped celeb kicked the bucket makes me do a crooked smile.
But he was nor overhyped nor a celebrity.
He was a personality.
We don`t get many of those anymore, if at all.
And those who we know so well that we tink they`re gonna be with us forever... fuck, they always were with us, why the fuck go?
They leave us one by one, and the world becomes stranger, emptier and sadder place.
She let me in she's a sweetheart.
It reminds me of a story my mom told me mom told me when Kurt Cobain was murdered her boyfriend came to her window crying about Kurt
Got a message from a friend on steam but I didn't see it because I was playing Zoo Tycoon and I thought he was just bitching at me for not playing Supreme Commander. What a fucking shit year.
>tfw born too late to experience his badass concerts
Are you ready for Blackstar to receive perfect reviews and award nominations?
I wonder how his wife took it.
>bowie face when he was banging the first black international supermodel that was a sensation and muse of many infamous luxury designers
Lucky son of a bitch.
I actually shed some tears. I'm sorry you are so bottled up. Last week I fucking wept because of some family stuff and I felt so good the next day.
Of all the times to do so, tonight you're allowed to feel anon.
It's bound to happen. Movie biography cash grab probably too.
Blackstar was decent, far from either his best or his worst. I've been listening to Lazarus several times daily since they released it
What should I make? I could make a Fried Egg and Cheese Sandwich. Is that good enough for Starman?
Im off to her house anon. No beatbox, just a bottle of red stag. Fuck my life, anon, this shit is ust as my mom was telling me about death of Kurt. Never thought it will happen to my generation, just thought of David as the eternal man from mars who cant die cuz death is too much human for him. Fuck this shit. Just fuck it. Mods, i didnt know you played THAT_DAMN_SONG here, so congrats, for an hour a whole diner in Moscow was listening to it through my laptops speakers.
THIS IS GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR TOM
>all your regrets ran rough-shod over me
>I'm so glad
>that we're strangers when we meet
They said you took a big trip,
said you moved away
... it happened oh-so-quietly, they say
I shoulda took a picture, something I could keep
Buy a little frame... something cheap
Everyone says Hi
Said you sailed a big ship,
they said you sailed away
I didn't know the right thing to say
I'd love to get a letter,
like to know what's what
Hope you're somewhere nice,
and it's not too hot
Everyone says Hi
everyone says Hi
... everyone says don't stay in a sad place,
where they don't care how you are.
Everyone says hi
and girl next door
and that guy upstairs
Everyone says Hi
And your mom and dad
Everyone says Hi
And your big fat dog
Everyone, says Hi
Let's get some of these musician tweets going
>Zoolander 2 end credits
>"dedicated to David Bowie"
Hi,/mu/, i just came to gibe my condolence.
He was an great artist and he will be missed by small yet really loyal group of fans, if anything, he was as original as British rockers are.
We lost one of the good ones!
RIP DB! Peace!
>that one Bowie song that you really love but you never see people talking about
Now that David Bowie is going to be all over the news for the next week, I can't even imagine some plebs' reaction to hearing something like Station to Station for the first time and having their mind be completely fucked.
I got shit I'm held to today also.
The stars gain another and the world marches on.
Actually let's not. Musicians really caring will do cover actually worth hearing. Tweets mean nothing, especially in this hypocritical industry.
Legends live on, as will Bowie
Thanks for the chuckle brother
Who death will RUIN you next? When James Murphy dies I die
Ctrl + F my posts ITT faggot I've been talking about bowie, he has been my favorite musician / celebrity for the large majority of my life, I spent most high school parties tryna talk people into listening to him, everyone basically knows me as a bowie fanboy. I was merely addressing one specific poster about his thoughts on people ITT.
Pic related got me all sad.
He was right I did love ziggy.
the fuck? It was all over facebook.
Well maybe because I liked David Bowie's page.
Attempting a PR for David today.
there is nothing wrong with crying, if you are sad and feel the need to cry but force yourself not to then you are the one that is not in tune with your own emotions and are repressing them, not the people that do cry.
>mfw did just this yesterday trough the day and night
>mfw I just woke and my gf told me he died (heard it on the radio news) and thought she was messing with me for ignoring her yesterday while I listened to him
>now I'm into racism
who the fuck says shit like this seriously? wtf is wrong with clapton, dear christ. "I'm into racism now, that's where all the cool cats are at". Also how the fuck can he say shit like this, the type of music he's played was created by black people... and he's played with and befriended countless black blues musicians... how the fuck can he just suddenly turn he back on that... seriously wtf.
>You're a faggot you cry though, have some dignity.
I can't remember the last time that I did but I would never judge another man for crying at the death of a fellow human being that meant something to him. You'd have to be a massive cunt to actually think that mocking a man who cried over the death of another was stoic or enviable. If a man can't shed a tear when something as final as death is involved then when can he?
MORE LIKE SASHA SILVER AMIRITE
I promised to never come back to 4chan after the exodus, but I just had to come back for this.
11 days into the new year and 2016 already sucks on ice.
R.I.P. Goblin King.
Rest in peace, starman.
the consummate artist.
when I took contemporary art history my professor mentioned David Bowie as an artist of high regard for some movement, I don't remember which, but I went "wait, that David Bowie?"
sure enough, it was that David Bowie.
the man could do anything creative. music, acting, visual art.
>listen to Black Star
>cry my eyes out for 40 minutes
>come on /mu/, open this thread
>Space Oddity plays
when will the feels end bros ?
>laid off last week
>bowie's dead now
My breakfast has been lots of vodka and a piece of toast with a raspberry jam lightning bolt across it. I feel incredibly pathetic but fuck this year so far. Gonna blare Bowie and drink all day.
I've cried harder than I have in years
granted I don't cry often so a farewell listen to Low just let it all out, man
I`m gonna binge everything Bowie I own today.
I`ll be listening to all these songs that helped shape my music taste and pretending that the man is still out there playing with his sax and thinking about new projects...
>The anons who said they cried are only saying it as a metaphor for extreme sadness.
like when an anon replies with "lol'd fucking hard" at some shitpost but he only smirked irl
anonymity is disassociating so anon need a way to bridge it through excess sentiment
>18 Month long fight with Cancer
I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE HAD CANCER FOR 2 YEARS NOW
HE WAS FINE HE WAS STILL DOING MUSIC AND SHIT
>tfw been depressed for 7 years
>been listening to Sound and Vision a lot lately
>"Don't you wonder sometimes 'bout sound and vision"
>Been considering going on anti-depressants because 2015 was a really positive year for me all things considering and I still can't seem to shake it, everything is still grey and dull somehow
>tfw feel like a bandwagoner because until now i had listened to some of his albums but only really loved and came back from time to time to Station to Station and just now checking more of his stuff
Still feeling like shit, felt so much when i read the news
I've loved his aesthetic since forever tho, the perfect andro inspo
>the last person David followed on twitter was God
At least we still have Ziggy Stardust. I wonder how they is handling it
What is /mu/ verdict on "The man who sold the world"?
1. David Bowie was better
2. Cobain was better
I'm legitimately teared up, but why should I go out of my way to prove that to some fucking anon on /mu/?
Well, I guess we need someone to fill his slot.
I'm even worse than that. Blackstar dropped and I really connected to it, fucking loved the song. Then Lazarus dropped and the lyrics of that one hit me even harder, haven't been able to stop listening to it. Started downloading more albums about 2 weeks ago and he's such a great artist but Blackstar is really the only album I have a firm grasp on so far, I haven't delved deep enough into the others.
Still felt like complete shit finding this out because I had just gotten into him and it was all very exciting and I was feeling the music.
COD thought it would be cool to reduce
honoring a fallen soldier to a keyboard prompt.
This bad decision lives on and has been appropriated
as a way to give condolences by the
heartbroken and the emotionally inarticulate.
>tfw half of soulseek is downloading his discog from me
it feels good to know that i'm helping people with their grief
All the musicians my parents grew up with are dying and I'm afraid they'll be next.
My mum was actually crying when she told me he died, he was a big part of her and dads life, used to listen to his music when they got their first place together, saw him live and bowie was played at my dads funeral too, I was lucky enough to see Bowie perform live in 1996.
I'm happy he got to see his album released and to have seen/heard the positive reviews.
RIP Mr Bowie ;_;
Midge Ure > David Bowie > POWER GAP > Kurt Cobain
Cobain's rendition is too generic. Midge Ure's just really appeals to me. It's got all the clarity of Cobain's with the same overall atmosphere as Bowie's.
This is the best I could do with what's on Youtube:
Enjoy fellow anons, and let's spend the entire night listening to David Bowie and doing what makes us happy.
I'm working on my dumb novel because I choose to believe that that's how David Bowie would want me to celebrate his life; by creating something new for the world.
HE'S COMING BACK IN 4 DAYS
HOLY SHIT THIS WILL BE THE MOST CRAZY THINGS EVER IF HE COMES BACK
THIS IS AN ALL A RUSE
THIS IS ALL AND ELABOURATE BLACKSTAR ARG
HOLY SHIT ALBUM ARG OF THE CENTURY GET FUCKED DEATH GRIPS
i know that this will be lost in the thread, but this hit me like a ton of bricks. seeing the way everyone else is reacting brings a tear to my eye.
thank you Bowie. I'm happy, hope you're happy too.
>Cobain's version was literally a note by note carbon copy without putting his own creative spark into it.
>expecting a talentless degenerate heroin addict to have even a fraction of Bowie's genius
good luck with the writing, lad
go and map out some territory of your own
funny how he looks (ffffuck he looked) like Joe Dallesandro here
how about crying for a beautiful life? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-JqH1M4Ya8
Seriously, look at this, acknowledge the fact that rather than living comfortably in his final moments, Bowie decided "Fuck it" and proceeded to make one last artistic statement with his death. The guy was a thorough artist. And to cry over the loss of that isn't unreasonable.
I was on here refreshing the catalog looking for a fresh new thread to shitpost in and then jumped in the first thread that said RIP with the screenshot of the facebook post m8 get fucked cunt
>LAZARUS SINGLE WAS RELEASED 4 DAYS BEFORE BOWIE'S DEATH
>SAINT LAZARUS WAS REBORN 4 DAYS AFTER HIS DEATH
STARMAN IS THAT REALLY YOU?
IT'S A SIGN
HOLY FREAKING CRAP, DAVID BOWIE IS IN THIS THREAD RIGHT NOW
A regular to /b/, /vg/, /h/, and /jp/. An occasional reddit browser too, sorry to say. Didn't really get too into David Bowie, but the few songs I have heard are rather good. Might as well hear all he has to offer now. I'm here for ya.
