So- I intended this to be my pick for last week, but I missed the final call on chart picks…well anyway…still relevant…
Last week got off to an incredibly sad start with the news of David Bowie’s death. This one hit incredibly hard for me. Bowie’s talent and influence was immeasurable. He was an innovator and a true artist in every sense of the word up until the very end. He changed the way I thought about music, fashion and I know that his music played a huge part in shaping me into the person I am today. So, this week and for awhile I will be taking in Blackstar, his parting gift to the musical world, as well as the rest of the albums that I love so much. Even though I am broken hearted at the loss of David Bowie from this world, I am thankful for all the incredible music he filled it with. So, I may shed a few tears, but I will also smile and dance and sing my heart out along to all of my favorite tunes…because I think that’s what he would want us all to do.
