Published 15 January, 2016 by DM

The Leaf Label's Office Radio has taken a week off, while we listened to the entire David Bowie back catalogue in order. It seemed like the only way to celebrate the life of an artist who has given us so much, whose influence was so wide ranging it is impossible to imagine the music world without him in it.

We attempted a list of our ten favourite Bowie tracks. We failed. Here are thirteen.
