Apparently, David Bowie’s Station to Station was remastered and rereleased recently. I ain’t care about that; I found a copy on vinyl a couple of years ago for $1.00, so I’m good. [/pretentious_hipster_bragging]

Anyway, because Bowie is awesome, we’re featuring Bowie covers in Any Asshole this week. Moving along…

Here’s YouTube user OlivierC68 from France covering “Station to Station.” I saw that he was doing this on acoustic and thought, That will either be awesome or terrible. Well, it’s awesome. So very, very awesome.

YouTube user guitarad does an awesome rendition of “Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud” off of Space Oddity. It’s one of my favorite Bowie songs from the era, and this version is awesome. Seriously.

Here’s Indigo Morgan covering “Absolute Beginners.” She makes a few changes, but I think they work. It’s another song I love, so I’m glad to see it covered and covered well.

And finally, here’s moonspyke covering one of my all time favorite Bowie songs, “Ashes to Ashes.” She does a good job of stripping the song down without much. At the end, it falls apart a bit, but the rest of it is fantastic.

And that’s it for our Assholes this week! Come back next week for more Assholes!
