Just for fun, we started sharing some of the original David Bowie music videos for the tracks featured on Mike Garson’s “The Bowie Variations” on Twitter. They’ve been a real hit, and so we thought it would be fun to share them here on the blog as well. We’ll put the originals from the first five songs featured on “The Bowie Variations” today, and four more on Friday. Enjoy!

The Bowie Variations
“Whatever Mike lends his hands to invariably becomes something magical.”–David Bowie.
Beginning in 1972, super-versatile pianist Mike Garson performed, toured internationally and recorded with one of the most creative figures in popular music, David Bowie.
Having played the Bowie songbook in concert countless times, Garson always had the ambition to record his own original variations on these well-known themes. This is the year it came to fruition!
