    As the news of David Bowie's passing reached across the world yesterday, a number of artists paid tribute to the man and his amazing achievements. Some did so through social media, others through more traditional news outlets, and others still, through the best way they knew how: song. From Rick Wakeman's stirring piano recital of "Life on Mars" on BBC Radio 2 to EL VY (The National's Matt Berninger and Menomena's Brent Knopf) and Jon Batiste & Stay Human's performance of "Let's Dance" on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to Skratch Bastid's remix of "Let's Dance," musicians from all over the globe played in remembrance of the star.

    It seems a fitting tribute to the man who once said, "I had to resign myself, many years ago, that I'm not too articulate when it comes to explaining how I feel about things. But my music does it for me, it really does."
