Farewell David Bowie – Golden Years
Golden Years, one of David Bowie’s biggest hits in North America.

Bowie had a string of UK hits before he was ever heard of in North America. By the time of his death yesterday, the now senior-citizen David Bowie had carved a niche for himself in fans across the continent.
Farewell, David Bowie.
