Thanks Joyti and Patrick,

I did feel the requirement for a reference, hence the title. It often seems the way with written tributes that people think it creative to merely cut and paste song titles etc of artists in order to somehow honour them. Whist it is vaguely intresting it isnt exactly a very personal tribute, or particularly creative. Bowie was much more than the sum of his songs and other work. I think it more fitting to honour his memory but suggesting how he actually contributed to the lives of others, rather than reeling off a shopping list of his amazing works.

Any way that isnt to detract from the fitting tributes of others, merely my opinion.

Nice to see a tribute which doesn't simply rely on listing song titles, apart from the obvious title it is touchingly subtle.
