This week top 3 is a pretty special one as we decided to honor the magnificent legend David Bowie was. Since the release of the tragic new earlier this week the web has been submerged by covers of the iconic artist. Here are our top picks among the lot.
Although we wished that this eclectic collaboration would have happened in the real world, this remix cooked by New York based Dj Terry Urban pays a great tribute to the two fabulous artists. Mixing Bowie’s ‘Moonage Dream’ and ‘Dead Wrong’ from Biggie, Biggie Stardust is a creative and unpredictable remix that would please every hip-hop fans.
Space Oddity definitely is one of the most known and covered song from Bowie. However, this downtempo remix from the Norwegian producer Lido brings a fresh savor to the bunch. The track is transcended by an honest delicacy and pays a spotless homage to an acknowledged classic.
When talent covers talent we find ourselves suspended in a magical place.
Covering classic can either lead to a massive disaster or another wonderful piece of art. This cover of Bowie’s Heroes by the Australian Indie Rock Band Gang of Youth will definitely find itself on the good side. The whole thing is absolutely uplifting and staggering.
Honorable mention to the American song writer Glen Hansard who performed a touching acoustic version of ‘Ashes to Ashes’ last Tuesday in front of Bowie’s New York apartment. In an interview with RollingStone Magasine, the artist explained his special gesture: "I really just felt the need like everyone else who was drawn toward somewhere to grieve, I just wanted to sing his song there. It's very personal. I didn't look anyone in the eye, I couldn't.”
