KARIJERU Davida Bowieja gotovo je nemoguće sažeti, a da pritom ne upadnete u zamku stvaranja pukih statistika i tablica nalik onima kakve pronalazimo na Wikipediji.

Dvadeset i pet solo albuma (i dva s grupom Tin Machine), devet live albuma, 46 kompilacijskih albuma, pet EP-ja, tri soundtracka, 13 video albuma, 51 spotova i čak 111 singlova. Sama ideja o nekom suvislom i preglednom pokušaju sabiranja njegova opusa u najmanju ruku djeluje suludo i od samog je početka osuđeno na propast.

Nećemo to ni pokušavati.

Izabrali smo, radije, 25 albuma i isto toliko pjesama kako bi nam pomogli da se prisjetimo barem dijela ove izuzetne karijere i tako odamo počast glazbenoj legendi i jednom od rijetkih autora koji su do samog kraja odbijali spavati na lovorikama. To dokazuje i odlični "Blackstar", njegov dvadeset i peti album kojim je pokazao i da je na pragu sedamdesete još uvijek u stanju ponuditi nešto kvalitetno, svježe i relevantno.

Ovo će se vjerojatno izgubiti u moru spotova, biografija, videa i sličnih objava kojima su news feedovi društvenih mreža danas zatrpani, ali nije bitno, ionako nećemo napisati ništa što već nije napisano. Stoga, pustit ćemo da njegova umjetnost govori umjesto nas - ovo je (samo) 25 albuma, stihova i spotova (ali i live nastupa) po kojima ćemo ga pamtiti.

1967 - David Bowie

"When I live my dream, please be there to meet me"

1969 - Space Oddity

"The sun machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party"

Ili...

"Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead,
there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you..."


1970 - The Man Who Sold the World

"Cause I'd rather stay here
With all the madmen
Than perish with the sadmen roaming free
And I'd rather play here
With all the madmen
For I'm quite content they're all as sane as me"

1971 - Hunky Dory

"It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?"

1972 - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

"News guy wept when he told us Earth was really dying / Cried so much that his face was wet / Then I knew he was not lying"

1973 - Aladdin Sane

"Sits like a man but he smiles like a reptile / She love him but just for a short while / She'll scratch in the sand, won't let go his hand / He says he's a beautician and sells you nutrition and keeps all your dead hair for making up underwear"

1973 - Pin Ups

Radi se o albumu obrada.

1974 - Diamond Dogs

"This ain't rock 'n' roll; this is genocide"

1975 - Young Americans

"Fame, makes a man take things over
Fame, lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame, puts you there where things are hollow
Fame
Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame
That burns your change to keep you insane
Fame
Fame, what you like is in the limo
Fame, what you get is no tomorrow
Fame, what you need you have to borrow
Fame"

1976 - Station to Station

"I brought my baby home / She sat around forlorn / She saw my TVC15, baby's gone / She crawled right in my ...hologramic TVC15 ... Oh, so demonic"

Inače, ovaj stih nadahnulo je iskustvo Iggyja Popa koji je, potpuno uništen od droge, pomislio da mu djevojku proždire televizor. Tako barem kaže legenda. 

1977 - Low

"Please be mine
Share my life
Stay with me
Be my wife"

1977 - "Heroes"

"Nothing will keep us together / We can beat them for ever and ever / We can be heroes, just for one day"

1979 - Lodger

"Clothes always fit ya
Life is a pop of the cherry
When you're a boy"

1980 - Scary Monsters 

"I never done good things
I never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue,
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now"

1982 - Let's Dance

"Let's dance to the song
they're playin' on the radio"

1984 - Tonight

"Everything will be alright tonight
Everything will be alright tonight
No one moves
No one talks
No one thinks
No one walks tonight
Tonight"

1987 - Never Let Me Down

"Nobody cares what you do,
please be yourself to death"

1993 - Black Tie White Noise

"I wish I was a sailor a thousand miles from here
I wished I had a future, anywhere"

1995 - Outside

"Oh, Ramona - if there was only something between us
If there was only something between us
Other than our clothes
Something in our skies
Something in our skies
Something in our blood
Something in our skies"

1997 - Earthling

"And I'm gone gone gone
Now I'm older than movies
Let me dance away
Now I'm wiser than dreams
Let me fly fly fly
While I'm touching tomorrow
And I know who's there
When silhouettes fall"

1999 - 'Hours...'

"All of my life I've tried so hard
Doing my best with what I had
Nothing much happened all the same"

2002 - Heathen

"Nothing remains
We could run when the rain slows
Look for the cars or signs of life
Where the heat goes
Look for the drifters
We should crawl under the bracken
Look for the shafts of light
On the road where the heat goes
Everything has changed"

2003 - Reality

"You promised me the ending would be clear
You'd let me know when the time was now
Don't let me know when your opening the door
Stap me in the dark, let me disappear
Memories that flutter like bats out of Hell
Stab you from the city spires
Life wasn't worth the balance
Or the crumpled paper it was written on"

2013 - The Next Day

"Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living"

2015 - Blackstar

"Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)"
