EDITORS’ NOTES

David Bowie’s 1967 debut album foreshadowed in many ways how he’d later dramatically shape pop culture. Musically, it’s wildly ambitious—from the horn-led theatrical pop of “Rubber Band” to the string-swirling, Syd Barrett-influenced “I Love You Till Tuesday” to the androgyny-themed popper “She’s Got Medals.” While there’s a novel jauntiness to “The Laughing Gnome,” other tracks are detailed observations of daily life, like “Join the Gang,” which mocks herd mentalities with a sitar and bouncing piano. This album showcases Bowie in all his youth, and that’s no slight.

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.
