Watch David Bowie’s Haunting Final Videos for ‘Lazarus’ and ‘Blackstar’

bowieDavid Bowie passed away at the age of 69 to a cancer he was battling for 18 months. You can read more about it here, as well as read some tributes posted and tweeted about him. Bowie was a true original; he was one hell of an artist with a keen vision and fearless ability to morph musically, visually and beyond. He was a chameleon.

In his final videos (off of the recently-released Blackstar), Bowie bids us farewell…literally. These videos are beyond haunting; I got goosebumps watching them and reading along to the lyrics. These two tracks alone are evidence of Bowie’s sheer genius.

I don’t even know what else to say except that you should watch them. Lyrics for “Blackstar” are here. Lyrics for “Lazarus” are here.

I find “Lazarus” to be exceptionally gutting:

Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now

Rest in peace.
