Bowie Tributes

Over at Blackberry Jam, Thais, (a student of mine at Emerson,) talks about the summer of the Bowie releases:

This summer, two different releases bring us back to David
Bowie’s music, although in completely different ways. “Live in Santa Monica ‘72″, recorded during his first U.S. tour, and “Life Beyond Mars”, a compilation of covers produced and recorded by emerging electronic artists. Both records illustrate Bowie’s ‘Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars’ phase and their release in the year of 2008 couldn’t be a louder statement that ‘Ziggy’ was a highlight in his career.

The post made me think of The Flight of Conchords tribute to Bowie:

That's so funny, Art. The same friend that gave me 'Life Beyond Mars' introduced me to Flight of The Conchords a while ago. Of course we watched that episode together, and how hilarious is Jemaine as Labyrinth Bowie? That is my favorite. I found a link to the video, if anyone is up for some laughs (
I'm honored to be linked to your blog, by the way! :)
