Amazons auto-rip of Blackstar has a lyric option, unfortunately they haven't bothered to check if they have them correct.

Amazon version (correct words)

In the villa of amen (ormen)

He'd trot on sacred ground (he trod on sacred ground)

I'm not a mauve old stone (I'm not a marvelstar)

I'm a black stone (Blackstar)

And your sedatives and booze (sedatives boo)

I wanna Equis in my daydreams (I want Eagles in my daydreams)

I'm a star stone (starstar)

I'm a black stone (Blackstar)

I'm not a flame stone (flamstar)

I'm not a white stone (whitestar)

I'm not a pawn star (pornstar)

I'm not a wondering stone (wandering star)

Excellent. Dreadful, but excellent.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

This does for me

I especially like the "data back to Earth" line

I just saw a clip of the New Orleans tribute procession. Which was fabulous
Mind you, it's made me sad

I remember that performance and sketch well. I owned a pair of helium filled pantaloons as worn by the great man. I bought them from a shop called heroes .

He appeared on the show twice didn't he ?

Mavis Nicholson. A quick google reveals she's still going strong at 85.

I'll tell a quick story, if I may.

A friend and I took our 16 year old selves to see David Bowie on the Aladdin Sanne tour in 1973. They played at the Long Beach Arena - an old basketball facility that held around 15,000 people. We had decent seats but not great and from our decent seats we could see a large section of empty seats that were much closer to the stage. Being industrious teenage boys we began working our way down to the good seats. And we made it, situated ourselves and began to enjoy the show.

Several songs in we were asked to leave our fine seats. We complained (lied, actually) that these were, indeed, our seats and we'd rather enjoy the show if we could only be left alone in our seats. Seats for which we surely have tickets...somewhere.

It ended up we were not exactly sitting in Angela Bowie's seats. Well, not the ones for her ass, anyway. She had several seats for her, her coat, her purse, etc. We were sitting in those. Our protests fell on deaf ears and we hurried back to our real seats for the rest of the show.

But now I can always say "I sat in David Bowie's ex-wife's seat that was for either her purse or her coat". Only in America. Or someplace else like America where that could also have happened.

In 1999 Bowie contributed towards the video game Omikron: The Nomad Soul, composing to the soundtrack and making a couple of cameo appearances. The current publishers of this game, Square Enix, are currently giving the PC version of game away for free. Some of the soundtrack later appeared as 'Hours....'
