And, BOOM! Here it is!!

NYTW ANNOUNCES WORLD PREMIERE OF LAZARUS

Theres a starman waiting in the sky...

It is with much pleasure and great excitement that we can confirm the Winter 2015 New York production of LAZARUS by David Bowie and Enda Walsh.

LAZARUS is inspired by the 1963 novel, The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis, and centres on the character of Thomas Jerome Newton, famously portrayed by Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation directed by Nicolas Roeg.

LAZARUS features songs specially composed by Bowie for this production as well as new arrangements of previously recorded songs.

I'd also recommend the Best Of Bowie as it gives a good timeline to work from. My favourite periods are 69-73 and 77-83.

I've heard three songs of his: China Girl, Let's Dance, and Under Pressure. And I love them! What would the Bowie fans here suggest I listen to in order to get to know his music more?

Every album from Hunky Dory through Scary Monsters, beginning in the middle with Station to Station.

I second the suggestions for looking at the Best of Bowie compilation.  I started there because my wife had it.  I then expanded based on certain songs I liked and as I learned more about his progressing style changes. 

As a fan of Achtung Baby, I was drawn to the Eno produced Low, Heroes, and Lodger trio of Bowie albums, which I tend to like the most.  I've also liked Outside and Earthling, which incorporated a more industrial/alternative sound.  They're decidedly 90's albums, but I still like the 90's too.

I would definitely recommend The Singles Collection for anyone just getting into Bowie. I also love the Heathen album, though it took a few listens to appreciate.

Pssst.....I'm sure the advice here is appreciated, but the original post was written 6 years ago.  I'm guessing they picked an album by now.  ;)  I almost posted something similar until I saw the post date.

I suppose this speaks to just starting a new thread rather than dig up one six years old to post about a particular artist...

That's why I didn't address the OP specifically. :) I'm sure they're not the last person ever to discover Bowie!

Out of curiosity, is there anyone apart from me who isn't particularly keen on the song Heroes? People are always going on about how amazing it is, and I'm just like... huh? It's never sounded that impressive to me - not sure what I'm missing.

Nope! You might be alone in this.

Agreed, I love that song so much.
