Ever since the news of his untimely death earlier in the month, David Bowie has been floating around in the UK top 40 singles charts (as is normally the case when a British music icon passes away) and will probably continue to do so for the coming months. Bowie is currently holding places 30, 32, and 36, and is down eighteen, sixteen, and eighteen places. Unfortunately he has now been overtaken by the likes of One Direction and Bieber, but hopefully Bowie will stay in our charts a little longer.
Bowie chart topper take over the internet!
It has reached the point where the internet has now been absolutely inundated with David Bowie tributes of every possible imaginable kind. The most popular tributes are of course the musical ones, with stars covering his more popular hits, and amateurs filling Youtube with the same kind of thing, some of which has been produced to a really quite phenomenal standard. The past month’s updates have been rife with piano and guitar accompaniments of people (from all walks of life) singing Starman and Life on Mars?. There are even s number of homemade videos where the performer is teary eyed (and one or two where a full-on break down is witnessed) because of the impact of Bowie and the sadness of his passing.

Of course, this trend of Bowie tributes is unlikely to stop any time soon (or ever, for that matter)… so it is by no means too late to join in and pay your respects to the late Labyrinth star.
