With yesterday's tragic news, I thought it only fitting that today's Trivia Tuesday include a little something about everyone's favourite Starman, David Bowie.
Bowie was a huge lover of literature, this a lot of people already know, but were you aware that one of his most iconic hits, Aladdin Sane was actually written about Evelyn Waugh's, satirical look at the bright young things of the 1920s, Vile Bodies?
As a fan of both Bowie and Waugh, this has always been one of my favourite little bits of trivia. If you're familiar with the book, I urge you to go back and listen to the song. The references are unmistakable.
I think I may just go listen to this now, and remember fondly all the great things he left behind for us mere mortals here on earth.
