The best of David Bowie playlist
8 January is legendary singer David Bowie’s birthday – the iconic singer would be celebrating his 72nd birthday today.
The influential musician, actor and artist has been a prolific cultural icon for more than four decades.
Since he first gained notoriety in 1969 for his now-iconic hit Space Oddity, Bowie pushed the envelope and experimented with a huge range of musical styles. Alter-ego characters like Ziggy Stardust captured the hearts and minds of people all over the world, and enduring classics like Heroes and Under Pressure remain popular today.
Today in honour of David Bowie’s extraordinary contribution to rock music, we’re looking back at some of his most iconic songs through the years.
