“A billion dreams, A billion streams”

 

“The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within 10 years, and nothing is going to be able to stop it. Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity” - David Bowie, June 2002.

 

Last week (Thursday, August 24), the music of David Bowie reached a major milestone with the one billionth stream on Spotify. The #1 streamed song, "Heroes", originally recorded in English, French & German, is this year celebrating its 40th anniversary and, as previously mentioned here, will be released as a special limited edition picture disc next month.

 

Bowie’s top ten most streamed solo tracks of all time on Spotify are:

 

"Heroes"

Let’s Dance

Space Oddity

Life On Mars

Starman

Rebel Rebel

Moonage Daydream

Changes

Ziggy Stardust

Modern Love

 

Bubbling under those are Fame, The Man Who Sold The World, China Girl, Oh! You Pretty Things, Sound & Vision, Where Are We Now? This Is Not America, Ashes To Ashes and Young Americans.

 

Thanks so much for making it happen, Kooks!
