    It can be streamed on BBC Two.

    As with the first film, this new piece will feature a wealth of rare and unseen archive footage and early audio interviews which have never been released before. This includes the original vocal which Bowie recorded for Lazarus, his last release before his death, which has never been heard before.
    David Bowie: The Last Five Years will focus on the three major projects of Bowie's last five years - the best-selling albums, The Next Day and Blackstar, alongside the musical Lazarus.
    Oh look!

    It is great, and obviously a fucking tear jerker.

    It's on my Plex for those of you who are connected, and can be found online if you know where to look

    This is a quote from the Marilyn Manson thread if people are wondering. I wanted to respond to it, but I didn't want to go off topic over there.

    Then you are not going to believe this... While at work a couple years ago, Bowie came up in conversation, I forgot why it was, doesn't really matter, all that matters is I work in a huge office of probably close to 1000 employees. Anyway, Bowie came up somehow, and my friend and I mentioned it to this other co-worker of ours, and he had no idea who we were talking about. He literally did NOT know David Bowie. Now, to give this fella the benefit of the doubt, he is originally from the Phillippines and migrated to Canada in about 2009, he's also a tad younger, He was probably 24 at the time we had this conversation. I figured that people from around the world regardless of where you were from knew David Bowie...

    Anyway, now THIS became the hot topic, we went to someone else "Can you believe Neil doesn't know who David Bowie is?" And that person would stare at us like a deer in headlights as well... "David who" They would respond. I couldn't believe this, we started asking more people, as it became unheard of that this many people did NOT know who he was. It became such a running joke that everyone started asking everyone if they knew who David Bowie was. One girl said "I only know his name because we share the same birthday"

    I could not believe this! I told this story to a Bowie mega fan friend of mine, and to my surprise, he said something along the lines of that he wasn't surprised and that Bowie really isn't the household name we think he is. He's big, but big in different ways than say U2 or Michael Jackson are. He doesn't reach the masses and tends to stay out of the limelight and makes music that doesn't appeal to everyone.

    So, this got me thinking... Yeah, Bowie is big, but he still managed to stay strangely underground a bit, in a weird kinda way.

    This comment made me think of that story, because it's like, how do you NOT know David Bowie! What have you been doing with your life lol.

    Also, I'm going to leave this here. Not really David Bowie, but it's kinda Bowie spotting... you guys are going to HATE this though... but it's kinda catchy haha.

    well for what it's worth, bowie has been in hiding for the most part of the past 15 years, arguably the years of the internet/mobiles boom and these days people only know what they see/hear on internet, especially younger people.

    I've just discovered this blog and it's fucking awesome; I've been reading it all day.
    It is comprised of long, amazingly detailed articles about EVERY bowie song, beautifully written and full of exhaustive bits of trivia, quotes, talk of influences and more.
    Any Bowie fan would get a kick out of this.

    Bowie isn't dead. He's on the spaceship with Michael Jackson and Tupac.

    Oh yeah! With Elvis and Frank Sinatra as they're currently doing a series of shows on Mars and then they'll be going to Jupiter as long as they try to find a cool way to get through the Asteroid Belt.

    Yes, we were, it pops up in this thread from time to time for years. A caution though, if you're reading it in chronological order from the start - as the years go by, the author begins writing about everything else in the world but the actual song until the last paragraph, filling the articles with unneccessary amount of cultural references that may or may not had influenced the song. This first became noticeable when he announced that his blog will become a book, and its particularly annoying in the 1990s since he's very clearly doesn't like that era's material.

    Which sucks, because he seems to completely ignore the whole narrative surrounding 1. Outside.

    Does anyone have anyone have any insight as to why all of the tracks from the Live Nassau '76 show sound FANTASTIC except for 'Life on Mars?' and 'Five Years'? They both sound like they were both from a different source than what the rest of the show is sourced from.

    Any thoughts?

    That's exactly why. They had to patch the album with lower quality tracks (possibly audience sourced) for completeness sake, because the original tapes were either lost or damaged.

    Did you go to the tour recently with the members of Bowie's band? I wanted to go because I really like Mike Garson, but the timing on the whole thing just didn't work for me.

    The Elon Musk Tesla he launched into orbit I saw reports on this on CNN and MSNBC they reported that the car was playing David Bowie's Space Oddity and another reported it was Life On Mars but the song playing in the background for the news junket was Starman. Why do they do this?

    No. This will actually be my first time, hopefully. I had a chance to see Bowie & NIN back in '95 but the person that was supposed to take me forgot because she was a stupid fucking drunk that squanders everything and also fucked over her husband who is a good friend of my parents. My father couldn't take me at the time because he broke his foot.

    I saw Bowie on the Earthling and Reality tours, had I known that Reality was going to be the last tour I would have gone to more Reality shows. I was lucky enough to see him and had really good seats for Reality but there were so many songs by him that I wanted to see him play. Like Station To Station and there are a lot of songs off of Outside I would have loved to see him play live. I hope that in the future the people handling Bowie's estate will release official concert tour videos.

    Well... considering what happened in Florida. I don't think it's a good time to play that song.

    I'm sure it wasn't in bad taste. But it was quite the coincidence.

    True. Bowie wrote it in response to Sandy Hook as I'm sure some idiot will make claims about the song and how it inspired that kid to do this horrific act.
