Is it just me, or is the media - at least here in the States - making a bigger deal of Prince's tragic passing than it did of Bowie's tragic passing? I mean it's obviously not a contest, I'm just curious. The media covered Bowie a lot on the day of, and then moved on pretty much, and we're entering day three and Prince is still everywhere. SNL is apparently doing a whole tribute episode tonight, where Bowie got one(very brief) segment.

It truly doesn't matter, but I'm just curious why the difference. The cynical part of me is thinking - again, at least in the States - that it's because Prince was American and Bowie wasn't. But that could be off base.

Anyway, I should listen to more of his work. I would've by now, but he never allowed any of it to be on YT.

I think because he was American and also the circumstances of how he died.

seems like US media coverage care more about Prince than Bowie. I personally love Bowie more than Prince because Bowie has worked with people/musicians I love (Eno, etc) and I tend to love more abstract/insane music. but as a cultural icon, I acknowledge that Prince has larger influence than David, especially in the 80s, the time people fondly remember these days. also the fact that Prince's death came pretty suddenly kinda contributed to this.

I don't think this is true at all.

I haven't noticed any significant difference in coverage. The outpouring of grief for both has been understandably huge.

The Afghan Whigs covered it when I saw them back in the 90s.
It's my second favorite song of his, and the album version is a big part of why. Just a killer pop track, already, and then he takes it one step further and just shreds all over the ending. Great stuff.

But my jam is, was and will always be "Let's Go Crazy". I can be having the worst day of my life, but I hear the intro to that song, and I'm immediately feeling better. It just doesn't matter how bad life might be, because that song exists.
