Starman: Blow Our Minds
When Bowie died, along with Prince and an excess of other rock icons in 2016, everyone was touched by it. He was such a unique performer. Always the Chamaeleon reinventing himself and his music. His forays into moving pictures were also remarkable.
None more so than his lead role in the 1976 British sci-fi film, The Man Who Fell To Earth. I loved the symmetry with his lyric from the 1972 track, Starman - "He'd like to come and meet us, but he knows he'd blow our minds." This espoused Bowie's creative genius, but also seemed like a call out for all artists to explore their creativity even when it might be too much or too different for the majority of people to understand.
