RIP David Bowie

I had this recording of one of the best songs ever made, David Bowie's "Heroes." His vocal performance on that song is one of the best of his career, and one of the most powerful vocals on a pop song I've ever heard.  He was an amazing man.  And an incredible artist.  The confidence it must have taken to do the things he did, and the generosity with which he used himself as a canvas on which he painted.  He changed music forever many times, and he was a brave and intrepid explorer through art and life.  David Bowie.  One of the truly amazing people that's every lived. 

So this is my plaintive take on his gorgeous and impressionistic lyrics.  People often overlook his lyrics as just strange, but they're so evocative and heartbreakingly beautiful.  The optimism and openness of them.  This is just my ping out into the universe that has reclaimed its most beloved space alien.
