This is one of my favourite tracks by David Bowie.

David Bowie passed away today.

Thank you for the music. You pushed personal boundaries and in the process you pushed the boundaries of the industry.

You are a legend. Rest in peace.


From his Twitter/Facebook feed:
David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.


Nick Drake is a recording artiste I discovered some 10 years ago or so. I’d never heard of him but as I was browsing the music collection at Borders I decided on a whim to have a listen.

I really like this guy’s music. It’s kinda of chill, laid back, acousitic with thoughtful (sometimes too thoughful) lyrics.

Unfortunately, this guy died in 1974 when he was only 26 from an overdose of anti-depressant pills. 

These are a couple of his tracks that I like. But I generally like all his music. Have a listen. Pink Moon:

and this, Free Ride:
