RIP Goblin King

David Bowie has died. RIP Goblin King. RIP Ziggy. RIP singer and songwriter I loved so much. I listened to him growing up, as dad is a hippie at heart. I listened to him in college as my group of friends loved his music. In tributes I offer one of my favorite songs done by Bowie and Bing. (If you cannot see it, check your version of youtube or something for Bing and Bowie Christmas). What a sad year, some big losses to acting and music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADbJLo4x-tk

One of my very favorite movies is Labyrinth we watch it about monthly here and quote lines from it all the time like "I wouldn't do that if I were you!" I considered naming one of my kids Jareth after the Goblin King. I loved a lot of his music, what a talented man. He will be greatly missed. I did not realize he had cancer so I was very shocked when I heard.

To quote the Beatles: "I read the news today, oh boy..." Had to spin Bowie earlier this morning...

erm, Angie's a Rolling Stones' song - gossip is it was written about Angie Bowie and/or rumours she started about him & Mick Jagger but it's meant to be really be inspired by Keith Richards daughter.

@jend80 Oh yes it is - then I must have been thinking of Sorrow - not sure - but I know my niece is named after that Angie and I am sure it was Angie Bowie too

Its crazy how many different personas David Bowie seemed to have...and how different his music could be. We certainly lost a legend.

he was one of the greats I think, and yeah, he really could change up his style and still be good
