happy

(no subject)

Tears were shed on both our parts last night when the news about Bowie broke. We watched a retrospective video collection that went from Space Oddity through to Lazarus, and it was sad and funny and nostalgic.

There are so many songs of his that have coloured my life, the man was making music before I was born and he was *so* prolific, and so very creative. But this is 'my' Bowie song, because it marks when I stopped listening to my parents music and started listening to my own.



This is the first celebrity death I've ever cried over. What an inspiring person.
