Bono talks about his favorite Bowie tracks.
Nice idea from Rolling Stone. They started with ten of those playlists (also From Annie Lennox, Jack Johnson, Jenny Lewis, Cee Lo and others) and will publish another 40 in the following weeks.
5# “Life on Mars” 1971
Bowie’s world was always full of intellectual and artistic static. Where he lived was a long way from where I lived in Dublin.
6# “Starman” 1972
The first time I saw him was singing “Starman” on Top of the Pops. It was like a creature falling from the sky. Americans put a man on the moon. We had our own British guy from space — with an Irish mother.
