Remembering David Bowie Through His Vocals

Posted by James Duncan on

This past week marked both David Bowie's birthday (Jan. 8, 1947) and the third anniversary of his passing (Jan. 10, 2016). Let's celebrate his life and diverse artistry by checking out some cool isolated vocal tracks.

Fascinating in their stark, haunting nature, the first below features Bowie's vocals-only on "Space Oddity" with its haunting opening line: "Ground control to Major Tom..."

Second is the quirky "Ziggy Stardust" with its wildly varied vocal. Also, don't forget that the original album notes from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars stated: TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME. 

P.S. Don't forget to check out our current selection of David Bowie memorabilia here.
