I believe Lance walked his mother down the aisle (her 4th marriage) to The Motel.

Apparently, more music was being made. Wouldn't be surprised if the leftovers are released sooner rather than later.
That's a little odd, considering the air of finality everything associated with this album seems to have.

Then again, Dylan didn't die after recording Time Out Of Mind, which is laced with death imagery and coincided with a near-fatal health scare.

This is all well and good, but your last paragraph implies that you've heard Blackstar and you haven't said anything in here. Thoughts?

Excellent list, all of those songs are among Bowie's best. I'd take the Outside version of Strangers though. Nice writing too! Good work.

Also, I know you're not a fan of Lodger, but surely you could have thrown a bone to one of its tracks in place of one of the Heroes entries. Red Money is a criminally overlooked track, for one suggestion.

Glad that you drew attention to all these others, though. I heard Teenage Wildlife at a bar last night and goddamn that song is amazing.

Fuck yeah Teenage Wildlife is amazing. A-right.

Also holy shit Black Tie White Noise is really really reaaaaaally good. First listen today. I have a feeling I'm going to be filling in pretty much all my blind spots this week.

Definitely one of the best songs candidate. I liked some Bowie songs over time while not ever delving into his catalogue, no idea where to start though - Absolute Begginers, Let's Dance, Fame, Rebel Rebel, Ashes to Ashes, Space Oddity and more recently Where are we now and Lazarus, it remains my favourite. The man who sold the world (technically only heard Nirvana's cover). Certainly one of the true originals and innovators.
He had great duets with Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Bing Crosby, and Queen.

Hate to break it to you but I'm pretty sure Jakob Dylan wrote "Heroes"
