David Bowie Covers

On one hand it's hard to believe that David Bowie is now 62 years old. But when you think about his immense  body of work, it becomes easier to accept that David Robert Jones does indeed qualify as a senior citizen.

David Bowie released his self-titled debut album in 1967 at the tender age of 20. He went on to release two dozen full-length studio albums, many of which both critics and fans hold dear as timeless classics.

Bowie is one of the few rock musicians in the business that has successfully reinvented himself as trends have changed. He has retained his top-tier artist designation with incredible songwriting skills, musicianship and a mysterious public persona.

Although he's been controversial at times, Bowie's music has cut across a wide spectrum of pop culture and has inspired untold numbers of musicians and young songwriters.

This playlist includes 15 David Bowie covers by artists who he has inspired over the years.
