True to my word I’ve assembled what I believe to be a best of the lesser known Bowie Inspiration Playlist. This a surprisingly difficult task. I mean, what constitutes ‘lesser known’ for an artist like Bowie? I feel like most of these tracks are still extremely well known. Perhaps I should have called it the ‘Not Ziggy or Space Oddity’ playlist.
Yes, some of these are covers, but Bowie excelled at making songs his own. I mean, did you know ‘Wild Is The Wind’ is cover? Crazy stuff.
Depending on who you ask, we either stole our name from the Bowie track or the Joy Division track. If you ask me, it was the Bowie track.
