David Bowie’s music transcended genre, and some might say the Earth and time itself. While words will never do his music, life, and art, the justice it so richly deserves, there are plenty of kind tributes and remembrances being shared on social media. Here are but a few:
David Bowie, (January 8, 1947 – January 10, 2016)
I'm stepping through the door And I'm floating In a most peculiar way And the stars look very different today

Bowie was a gender anarchist who brightened a path for me and many many others.

bowie was beyond human. he taught us all how to lose ourselves a little bit, to reach up with open fists to heavens unknown.

Lemmy, Boulez and Bowie. Honestly, tomorrow the sun could burn out and it would have to take a number and get in line.

As John & I had very few friends, we felt David was as close as family. Sweet memories will stay with us forever. pic.twitter.com/WoZsztnm4E

David Bowie set the standard for interracial relationships. He didn't only see past physical differences. He loved and celebrated Iman.

So sad to hear David Bowie has passed. Impossible to overstate his legacy and the influence he had on so many musicians including us.

No worse way to wake up then finding out one of the few unquestionable geniuses has died. RIP David Bowie.

David Bowie was one of my most important inspirations, so fearless, so creative, he gave us magic for a lifetime.

What a goddamned beautiful uncompromising life, a body of work that covers so much ground with such depth and grace.

If you're ever sad, just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.

Coinciding his last album with his death might be Bowie's most remarkable accomplishment. Really makes you think he is beyond this world.
