David Bowie Day Should Be Like This! It Would Be F**king Awesome!

The city of Chicago has declared September 23rd as David Bowie day. Bet theirs has nothing on ours though…

So the good people of Chicago have declared September 23rd as David Bowie Day in celebration of the acclaimed David Bowie Is… retrospective exhibit coming to the city.

David Bowie Is… features well over 300 items from the musician’s personal archives, including “never-before-seen storyboards, handwritten set lists and lyrics, and some of Bowie’s own sketches, musical scores and diary entries, from his years as a teenager in the 1950s to the early 2000s, when he retired from touring.”

The David Bowie Is… exhibit is brilliant, but surely for a day celebrating the god of music that is Bowie, we need a day fit for the ‘Starman’ himself. Here’s HTF’s 8 step plan to our perfect Bowie day!

1. Ch Ch Ch Ch….Changes!
So the morning comes in with ‘Heroes’ blaring from your ‘Laughing Gnome’ alarm clock, you stir your eyes to see the Thin White Duke himself leaning over you. He’s holding a pair of Ziggy Stardust outfits and hands you over a second costume, he wants you to be his Mick Ronson for the day. In a montage to ‘Fashion’ you and him both change into your famous jumpsuits and grab a full cooked breakfast (everything can be made better with bacon!). He of course only eats toast to keep a slim frame, but you’re a greedy sod so why not!

2. Ziggy Played Guitar
After a mammoth breakfast, Bowie hands you a Gibson Les Paul and sings over your brilliant attempt at playing ‘Ziggy Stardust’. He doesn’t look too disappointed with your effort and it’s then you realise he’s holding the crystal ball from Labyrinth and the decent rendition you’ve just played was actually down to him…cheeky git.
