The Next Day was the last David Bowie album I bought. He was already 66 at that time and one of my favorite songs from that album, "Where Are We Now", became one of my top five favorite songs for 2013.
If you listen to the lyrics of this song, you'd realize that David was already mulling about his mortality, which really makes the song even more heartbreaking.
Three years later, he finally bade farewell. One good thing about really good musicians is that they have this body of music they can leave us to remember them by.
