New York Tribute To Bowie Could Be Better By Using His Song Titles

Updated on January 11, 2020

Bowie Tunes Could Literally Get You From Station To Station

Source


Only had it been in a place called Suffragette City could the tribute have been better, but instead it took place in the area David Bowie had called home for almost twenty years. As part of the fourth anniversary of his death, someone in New York City rearranged the letters in the nearby train station to read B D WIE 4.

The story appeared on the web site of the Daily News on January 10, the day when Bowie passed away after a battle with cancer.

Any fan of the influential rock star would be pleased to observe the effort, but there is an even more meaningful way to honor David Bowie. Area officials could simply assign names to the various stations, referring to each as a particular title of a Bowie song.

Here are eight such titles that could serve such a purpose, using Bowie compositions to get you from Station To Station. Also keep in mind that, although many of your fellow passengers might fit either description, it would not be politically correct to name the stations Kooks or Scary Monsters and Super Freaks.

1. Underground from Labyrinth
What better way to begin a commute than to hear the chorus, "Down in the underground you'll find someone true."

2. Chilly Down from Labyrinth
Even in a frigid New York winter, subway riders could find encouragement from this worry-free track.

3. Ching-a-Ling from 1984's Love You Till Tuesday
This catchy chorus makes you feel as if you are flying instead of chugging along on an underground rail.

4. Fantastic Voyage from Lodger
Instead of just a mundane ride to work, imagine how much more exciting it would seem were it named after this hit.

5.Hang on to Yourself from Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
While not one of the most well-known tracks from the album, it certainly does make for good advice during a crowded train ride.

6. I'll Take You There from The Next Day
This bonus track promises exactly what you expect and hope for from city transit.

7. Move On from Lodger
On this track about being in motion, Bowie actually mentions riding on a train.

8. Survive from Hours
Even more important than reaching your destination is this one word.
