All of my closest friends, like very dear friends for years give me shit for being a fan. I was talking to a girl about how cathartic it was seeing the huge response to his death and she was like "Yeah, who isn't a fan?" It was a bizarre moment, because his popularity was an abstract for me. My buddies always rolled their eyes and listened to their high browed sound-bath music.
>>61952656 >tfw always enjoyed David Bowie songs >never got interested in his albums until Blackstar single was released >thoroughly enjoyed the full album, spent 3 days listening to it and unwrapping it slowly, >excited to see what the rest of his discography holds >excited to see what David Bowie will be capable of in the future >David Bowie dies Fug
>>61952846 It felt like the album was a start of a whole new era so it sucks that he died. Heroes and Low will always be godly though. The only thing I'm pissed about now is that if I mention I like Bowie, people think I'm one of those bandwagon jumpers that only give a shit when the person dies.
Never really had an opinion on Bowie before he died. What music of his I had heard seemed boring so I didn't look into it. After going through his biggest albums recently (Eno Trilogy, Ziggy Stardust, Space Oddity, Aladdin Sane, Blackstar) I can pretty definitively say I don't like David Bowie now.
I've loved David Bowie since I was 5 years old. Labyrinth was one of my favorite films, and I got into the big singles through my childhood from there, and then got into Diamond Dogs and Hunky Dory and the rest of Ziggy Stardust, and every time I would "discover" another album and talk about it, literally everyone I knew would tell me to "shut the fuck up and stop being so gay about Bowie"
>>61952656 >Knows he has cancer for about 1 and a half years >Slowly dying and doesn't say anything >Instead of live every day to the fullest surrounded by loved ones he makes an album for his fans as a last goodbye >This selfless man only got 62 years Gonna fucking miss you Bowie.
Always was a fan of the early stuff. Didn't care for him when he started the whole Thin White Duke phase, and beyond. Still respect it, but I know my tastes, and what era I'll gravitate towards. Gimme the gay hippie stuff. Gimme Ziggy. Gimme Alladin Sane and Diamond Dogs. Stop after 1975. (At least I'm honest)
>buy and sell records for extra cash >get home from work one day and see all bowie albums in stock have sold >packaging and comment to brother how weird it is all the bowie albums sold that day >he says "maybe he died or something" >I had just heard he died on npr that morning but forgot
>>61952656 there were pretty much daily threads about bowie and in every "musicians whose deaths will hit the hardest" bowie was within the first five posted. all the people shilling the "bowie only good cuz ded" meme must either be pretty new or have a severe memory problem
>>61955937 The Man Who Sold the World wasn't gay hippie shit. If anything it's a rip on all the rock music that was prevalent during that time, musically at least. Though there is some dispute that Bowie only did the lyrics on that album...
