2016 Playlist: Lazarus – David Bowie

Enough has been said about the sad passing of Jareth the Goblin King. Enough has also been said about his final album, Black Star. It’s good, but by and large doesn’t exactly lend itself to picking out tracks in isolation.

That said, Lazarus stands alone pretty well. If someone played you the video with no prior knowledge of Bowie, you’d maybe say “Hey, this guy seems like he’s not going to be around much longer” and you’d be right.

It’s impossible to think about without getting profoundly bummed out.
