Pause-and-Playlist: We Miss You, David Bowie

It was a horrible thing to wake up to the morning of Jan. 10, 2016: the shocking news that David Bowie had died of liver cancer, just two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his “★” (“Blackstar”) album.

A year later and the shock still hasn’t worn off. The same goes for the untimely deaths of Prince and George Michael in 2016.

The best way to honor Bowie is to remember his musical legacy, from his 1967 self-titled debut album to last year’s “★.”

So many great songs, so many great albums, so many different styles and genres. Bowie was truly one of the most versatile artists of the entire rock era.

Here are some of our favorite Bowie songs, from 1967 to 2016.
