Tonight by David Bowie on Apple Music

9 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

After the blockbuster success of Let's Dance, Bowie was still in a mood to strut his stuff. The exuberant "Blue Jean" proved he could still set dance floors on fire, and its hints of "Louie Louie" are probably no accident. But there are more ballads this time, as Bowie flexes his voice on Brian Wilson's classic "God Only Knows" and gets soulful on “I Keep Forgettin’.” The title song features two things you don't normally hear on a Bowie album: reggae rhythms and Tina Turner.

About David Bowie

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades. From the moment his homesick astronaut captured the spotlight in the late ‘60s to his exploratory, jazz-influenced Blackstar almost 50 years later, he excelled and innovated with turns in pop, glam, punk, soul, hard rock, and electronic music. And even though Bowie released vital albums throughout his life—and will forever embody the most artful edge of rock ’n’ roll—he was more than just the music he made. Bowie's fearlessness inspired us to celebrate the complexity and beauty of being completely ourselves.
