David Bowie - Songs


David Bowie is an eclectic and highly influential glam rock singer and performer who became internationally famous with "Space Oddity." He was born David Robert Jones in London and first recorded under his real name (as David Jones) before changing his stage name to David Bowie to avoid confusion with the Monkees' Davy Jones.

In 1972, Bowie debuted on the US charts with "Changes" (which recharted in 1975). Bowie's best known songs include "Space Oddity" (1973), "Fame" (1975), "Let's Dance" (1983), and "Dancing In The Street" (with Mick Jagger). His string of hits continued through the end of the 1990s.

Bowie's career is characterized by continual reinvention and musical innovation, and over the years, he has adoped various alter egos that reflect his different musical phases such as "Ziggy Stardust" and "Thin White Duke." Bowie is also an actor whose movie credits include "The Man Who Fell to Earth" (1976) and "Labyrinth" (1986) in which he co-starred and performed.

David Bowie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
