Most recently, he released his 25th album, titled “Blackstar”, on his birthday, January 8, 2016. Have a look at some of Bowie’s best quotes from life, his music and his best works.


1. Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now
– Lazarus from “Blackstar” Album


2. As the pain sweeps through,
Makes no sense for you.
Every thrill is gone.
Wasn’t too much fun at all,
But I’ll be there for you,
As the world falls down.
– As the World Falls Down from the movie The Labrynth


3. I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.
– David Bowie


4. Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, forever and ever
Oh we can be heroes, just for one day.
– Heroes from The Best Of Bowie


5. I’m an instant star. Just add water and stir.
– David Bowie


6. I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.
– Jareth in The Labrynth


7. In my life I’ve never stopped
to worry about a thing
Opened up and shouted out
and never tried to see
Wondering if I’d done wrong
Will this depression last for long
Won’t you tell me
Where have all the good times gone?
– Where Have All the Good Times Gone from “Pin Ups”


8. The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.
– David Bowie


9. One day though it might
as well be someday
You and I will rise up all the way
All because of what you are
The Prettiest Star.
– The Prettiest Star from “Aladdin Sane”


10. I’ve made over 25 studio albums, and I think probably I’ve made two real stinkers in my time, and some not-bad albums, and some really good albums. I’m proud of what I’ve done. In fact it’s been a good ride.
– David Bowie

Terrible examples of Bowie Lyrics and quotes. When you pick multiple quoted from Labyrinth, it tells me that you aren’t really all that familiar with Bowie’s work. You know that kids’ movie he was in when you were 10.

oh, and he didn’t write “where have ann the good times gone”. It’s from Pin ups, which is an album of covers.
