elo told me she read somewhere that bowie didn’t want anyone to know. i don’t care how it sounds but i’m surprised i’m the last to know that he was sick. i loved the music/art and i’m glad that he enjoyed his life.
One day in 1981 Bowie reunited with Queen in a recording studio in Switzerland, with the intention of doing vocals for the song “Cool Cat” . David got bored and suggested writing a new song from scratch. According to Mark Blake, author of a biography of Freddie Mercury, they began a 24 hours marathon of wine and cocaine and ended up with this musical gem. This is incredible! Back in the day when auto-tune wasn’t needed. You’d never hear this from most ‘singers’ these days.
This is the best Bowie gem I’ve seen all day.

Last Bowie post I’ll do…
She could’ve been a killer if she didn’t walk the way she do…and she do.
The supermodel reminisced about her husband’s legendary career in the days leading up to his death.
“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”
…she’s not sure if you’re a boy or a girl.
Inevitability is wearing me out right now.
Peace out, Bowie. I’ll miss you and the Spiders from Mars.
Kirsty Young’s castaway is Chris Hadfield. He was the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station and took part in three space missions spending a total of 166 days orbiting the Earth. He has spent over 14 hours doing two space walks. He flew his first eight day mission into space in 1995 during which he visited the Russian space station Mir. In 2001 he paid his first visit to the International Space Station to help install Canadarm2, a robot arm helping to build the station which was launched three years previously. In 2012 he began his final five month stay in space on board the ISS. It was on this mission that his videos of life in space - including a film of him singing David Bowie’s Space Oddity and accompanying himself on guitar - led to him enjoying a huge following on social media.
I hadn’t heard of him until his infamous Space Oddity cover from space back in 2013.
He’s on Instagram, too: instagram.com/colchrishadfield/
