The late, great David Bowie was a (Star) man of many talents. He took the world by storm by writing beautiful tunes and challenging the music industry norm. Bowie’s ability to reinvent himself and rejuvenate his career time and time again cemented him in history—and our hearts.
Bowie constantly pushed boundaries, whether they be musical, fashion, or societal. Songs like "Under Pressure," "The Jean Genie," and "Diamond Dogs," resonate with all generations and, fifty years later, the world continues to celebrate Space Oddity.
True to form, Ziggy Stardust created music up until two days after he passed. His final album, Blackstar, was released 48 hours after David Bowie took his final bow. Pivoting from pop to jazz to punk to rock, the influential and innovative English artist sold an estimated 140 million albums. Since 1963, Bowie has churned out 11 number-one albums and has raked in dozens of well-earned accolades, including seven Grammy Awards, 11 NME Awards, and four BRIT Awards.
With 27 albums and 128 singles, the Man Who Sold The World has plenty of iconic lyrics—can you name them?
