#Bowie6Music - The Ultimate David Bowie Playlist
There were so many suggestions of tracks related to the Thin White Duke that we could have gone on forever, but managed to squeeze it down to just 90-minutes of Bowie.
As usual, we also wrapped up the latest music news at the top of 2012 – for example the Sound of 2012 winner, and new material from Scissor Sisters.
David Bowie - Let's Dance
* Two Thom Yorke tracks he made for the Rag and Bone clothing line have surfaced on YouTube, called Twist and Stuck Together.
* Nick Cave’s recently disbanded Grinderman are releasing a remix album in March, called Grinderman 2 RMX. Listen to Nick Zinner's remix of Bellringer Blues on Soundcloud.
