I gotta say, David Bowie's one hell of a guy. Not just because he collaborated with Queen on Under Pressure, but because of his eccentrically awesome music.

He's been playing ever since the late 1960's, and he still kicks ass now! Songs like Fame, Ziggy Stardust, Changes, Fashion, and Let's Dance are still influential in the evolution of popular music.

I'm listening to his 1997 album 'Earthling' right now. Some really funky stuff on there, music I didn't know he could do until recently.

Who else likes David Bowie? There's gotta be someone out there who does!

Of course :D

He is a musical genius, no doubt about it.

Changes, Ashes to Ashes, Jean Genie, Starman, Thursday's Child, Modern Love, China Girl, Heroes, Rebel Rebel.......all bloody amazing songs!

AND Let's Dance....

Well, I'll admit, after going through my Best of Bowie CD about 50 times, it does get somewhat boring.
BUT, he does have over 30 years worth of material, ranging from funk to rock to dance to techno, and everything else in between!

So as long as you have variety in your David Bowie experience, you should never get bored. At least, I shouldn't.

There is no reason for "Rebel Rebel" to be longer than two minutes. I'm sorry, but that just bothers me.

Bowie is hot! And a musical genius as well.

I just found the Easter Eggs on the Best of Bowie DVD I got!

The fun never ends...

But seriously, I think what I should do to help relieve the ensuing boredom of listening to the same songs over and over would be to actually check out other songs of his.

For example, I just checked out Hunky Dory from my library. Other than Changes, good songs exist, such as Queen Bitch, and Andy Warhol.

Bowie is kickass though, no matter what!

I dig everything. h0h0

Huge Bowie fan here, I think I've got everything from Hunky Dory to Let's Dance, excluding Pin Ups and Young Americans, as well as most of his recent stuff. The next time he tours, I want to see him, because I haven't seen him live yet and it just seems like something I should do.

I love his hits, but that is the extent of my Bowie knowledge.

I love David Bowie, I seem to be steadily accumulating all of his albums. I think my favourite album is either Diamond Dogs or Ziggy Stardust.
