The shock of David Bowie’s death last night, just days after his 69th birthday and the release of his 25th album, feels quite surreal. Not knowing he was sick makes it harder to grasp.

One of my friends wrote, “Not too many famous people’s deaths make me go ‘Aw, fuck,’ but David Bowie’s has.” and I feel the same. He will remain a hero for more than one day.

What was your favourite Bowie song? (Did you even like him?) I think mine is Changes. But there are so many good ones.

Put on your red shoes and dance the blues …
