I truly believe in the healing properties and power of music and am a music fanatic. I will post playlists from time to time pertaining to wellness. Today will be marked with reverence for a true original. Let's celebrate his life through his music.
I can't say that I am a huge David Bowie fan per se, but I have always admired his musical ability and knack for writing a great song, not to mention his collaborative spirit. Here's my top five in memorium:

4. Under Pressure (w Queen).
3. Space Oddity
1. Suffragette City

"Fame, bully for you, chilly for me
Got to get a rain check on pain" David Bowie, Fame
