Lazarus

What better way to round off this week's Bowie tribute than with one of his last songs, the aptly titled Lazarus? This song (and the video) is brutal now that we know he must have realized he was near death when he recorded it. As two commenters put it: "That beautiful SOB. He turned his own death into artistic expression. Genius to the end." and "This video is so unsettling and tragic now. Imagine being in his place, on this shoot, lying in a deathbed that's make-believe to everyone except yourself." Rest in peace. Art Rock score: 9/10 (awesome song, one of the 1000 best of all time).
