This is the song that made Bowie huge in the U.S. -- reaching number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September of 1975. His new friend, John Lennon, sings backing vocals. link (http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/11/entertainment/david-bowie-youtube-greatest-hits/index.html)

The last song Bowie released, now a haunting final word from a man who knew he was dying. The line "Look up here, I'm in heaven," is among the poignant lyrics. Long-time friend and producer Tony Visconti said he turned his death into a work of art, describing his new album "Blackstar," released a few days ago, as "his parting gift." link (http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/11/entertainment/david-bowie-youtube-greatest-hits/index.html)
