I'm amazed there's anyone out there that hasn't seen the amazing Labyrinth, with David Bowie as Jareth The Goblin King. The above clip shows one of the musical numbers from the film, called "Dance Magic Dance", fab!
Bowie also put a good turn in as Andy Warhol in the movie Basquiat (one of the best films ever made, and one of the best soundtracks ever - but that's for another post) - Bowie has gone from singing a song about Warhol, to playing him. Nice!
Bonus youtube clip; Flight Of The Conchord's tribute to the man himself called "Bowie's In Space", which has the great line "Hey Bowie, do you have one really funky sequined space suit?Or do you have several ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?"
