It occurred to me though, while Bowie influenced many through his music and his life (especially his gender bending and fluid sexuality), there are others who are equally moved by playing his music. So, this blog post just highlights a couple of music scores - another way to pay homage to a great musician and artist.
Score - The best of David Bowie, 1969/1974. Rock music, from the 1997 album of the same title; for voice and piano, with chord symbols and guitar chord diagrams. The Jean Genie -- Space oddity -- Starman -- Ziggy Stardust -- John, I'm only dancing -- Rebel rebel -- Let's spend the night together -- Suffragette City -- Oh! you pretty things -- Velvet goldmine -- Drive-in Saturday -- Diamond dogs -- Changes -- Sorrow -- The prettiest star -- Life on Mars? -- Aladdin sane -- The man who sold the world -- Rock 'n' roll suicide -- All the young dudes.
Score David Bowie Anthology. Songs written principally by David Bowie between 1963-1984. 41 songs in all from 'Ziggy Stardust' to his album 'Tonight,' including: Ashes to Ashes * Blue Jean * Cat People * Changes * China Girl * Fashion * Let's Dance * The Man Who Sold the World * Modern Love * Rebel, Rebel * Scary Monsters and Super Creeps * Space Oddity * Suffragette City * Young Americans * Ziggy Stardust * and more.
I also want to give a shout out for an event at the Art Gallery of Ontario / AGO who are teaming up with Choir! Choir! Choir! to honour Bowie's legacy this Saturday evening January 16th, 2016 by inviting Toronto to help perform one of his most beloved songs, Space Oddity, in three-part harmony.
