i literally dont get it
most of this guy's work is really boring and generic
the only solid albums he did were Low and Blackstar
aladdin sane and station have their moments, but they are still just above mediocre, and not by much.
Pic related is the most overrated one
everything else is lame.
i cant belive people hang on this guys dick so much, some even compare him with the beatles lol.
i fucked up pic related was supposed to be this, but still makes sense i guess lol
>Visconti said Bowie had called him about a week before his death and "at that late stage, he was planning the follow-up to Blackstar".
>"I was thrilled," said the producer. "I thought, and he thought, that he'd have a few months, at least. So the end must've been very rapid. I'm not privy to it. I don't know exactly, but he must've taken ill very quickly after that phone call."
>Although the record features lyrics such as "Look up here, I'm in heaven," its producer Tony Visconti said the star had written and demo-ed five new songs in recent weeks.
Dying wasn't part of his plan
yeah ok name a bowie song as good as any of this

i keep wondering why people are riding bowie's dick so hard. he never did anything "new" (some asshole with an aladdin sane tat tried to tell me he invented blue eyed soul with young americans lol) and really the only thing i'm seeing in all these memorials is "he let me be a weirdo because i'm not unique enough to be different on my own". you would think someone who left such a massive impact on music would have written some, i dunno, groundbreaking music?
bowie has always been about riding coattails and adaptation. "a musical chameleon". low was a good album because brian eno had his godly fingers all over it. ziggy was a paint by numbers rock album with a slightly weird narrative to back it up. nothing excites. nothing pushes forward.
Literally almost any Bowie song from the 70s is as good as those. It's not like it matters if I even name them cause you'll just reply with a "nope" or something. It's your subjective shit opinion.
*jacks off and cums all over this post*

this, bowie was an amazing musician and artist whose creativite went beyond music as well, instead of being a bunch of catchy songwriters who'd hold on to any cultural meme of the time
>be le me
>love le beatles
>they're le greatest band ever!!!
>le david bowie dies
>lmao whos david bowie?
>people le like david bowie
>try listening to david bowie
>le me: "wtf none of his music sounds like i want to hold your hand or yesterday, he sucks!"
>le me:"i want to tell people my objective opinion on music but i dont want le downboats in case people disagree with me, i know, i'll post on le 4chans and if they disagree with me i'll show them how i think none of bowies work stands up against my favorite beatles songs and then i can tell reddit how i won an internet argument against fake anonymoose"
pretty ironic that you call bowie mediocre, generic and overrated and then use the beatles as the opposite of bowie you twat
The bridge on Something gets me so hyped, but all of these are pretty straight forward pop, yeah a Day in the Life is very theatrical, but Bowie does it better with Life on Mars, Moonage ect...
David Bowie is a fucking faggot
He claimed to be gay and then "OH WAIT NO IM NOT I JUST WANTED TO OFFEND PEOPLE LOL"
Then he tried to cover his tracks by fucking some Afro like a fucking cuck
He is the most disgusting thing that has ever walked the face of the earth: a white sellout bitch to the powers that be.
Fuck him, listen to Staind and Limp Biskit.
A lot of people make albums with a lot of filler and one or two good songs. The album is practically a single, they just don't want to admit it. It's not their fault, the market is for LPs even though most people can't write that many good songs quickly.
My only criticism of Bowie is that for most of the albums you listen to the titular track and it's so much better than the other songs that you get burnt out
>Man Who Sold The World
You can say the same for a lot of artists though 2bf
>Limp Bizkit >>> David Bowie
nice b8 m8
also fucking kek
If he was short and ugly no one would give a fuck about him
There's a reason tons of girls on Facebook/Tumblr miss him, he was attractive and average, which goes further than being ugly and great
People are riding his dick hard because he served for many as an introductory to more "experimental" side of music. While most of singles were pop Low and Aladdin Sane still set him apart. He has shown that he can do a diverse amount of genres and he has shown that he can grow with the times.
For many people it is nostalgia or respect. He is beloved because he is relevant. Unlike other monumental figures, every few years Bowie comes back. For people who are not "trying to achieve patriciandom on an imageboard", he was always a relevant figure. The noise surrounding his death is because it was so unexpected. If Brian Wilson died tomorrow, yeah it would suck but the reactions will not be the same. It is simply due to relevancy.
I listened to Low and Heroes and they were legit boring as fuck.
Competent musicians playing behind him (nothing that interesting, just competent) while he sang over with absolutely nothing melodically going on
He isn't wrong but he's not right either. Bowie doesn't mean anything to him, but he meant something to a fuck of a lot of people and did revolutionize the way we look at pop music.
Only two Bowie songs I've ever liked
-Space Oddity (well executed song and great vocal delivery)
-China Girl (fun and catchy)
What other songs would I like by him? I'm the guy who liked nothing on Low/Heroes btw.
This may sound dumb but I love Ariel Pink and I guess he's influenced by Bowie?
i literally dont get it
i literally don't get things that some people get
some people literally get some albums, and I literally only get them on a mediocre level
i literally dont get it
i literally dont get how people like things that i literally dont get
