The year was 1983:
MTV scored hit after hit at around the same time that North Carolina State became the true Cinderella Darlings of that year’s NCAA Tournament.
There was Michael Jackson with “Billie Jean” and “Thriller”, Men at Work gave Americans too many weird ideas with vegemite sandwiches on “Down Under”, The Eurythmics reminded us that “(Sweet Dreams) Are Made of This”, and David Bowie came up with a really neat gem.
He probably had the NCAA’s big-time college basketball showcase in mind when he wasn’t on stage or dressing up to the Nines. Just two days after celebrating his 69th birthday when his album on mortality simply titled Blackstar was released to the world, he was gone.
This song is just a small sample how powerful David Bowie’s music was. A trailbrazer and true master of his craft, let these lyrics remind us of why life is supposed to be fun. Sure, you can find the actual music video on other sites, but this is my little tribute.
Sing it loud, sing it proud Starman. You will never be forgotten.
