big music repertoire, I’d like to say, so I think
I’ll do pretty good with this. – I’m wearing a Metallica shirt right now. So I kind of feel like
I could be really good at this. – I know the song. Like, I’ll know it. But I won’t know the name or the artist. I’m always up for

like Franz Ferdinand to me. – “Let’s Dance.” But I don’t know who it’s by. – “Let’s Dance” by blank. – “Let’s Dance”? But
I don’t know the artist. – “Let’s Dance” by David Bowie. That beat just makes you want

I did not recognize his voice. – I never really listened to David Bowie. – David Bowie! Oh man.
How did I miss that? – David Bowie. Oh my god.
I’m so sorry, Dad. – Oh, come on! Oh my god. I can just imagine that song
playing at, like, 1985 prom. – (FBE) So David Bowie had
different characters or personas throughout his career. Here he is as Ziggy Stardust
and then the Thin White Duke. – Hearts. Such a good-looking man. – This is like the most recognizable photo of Bowie, like, ever. – I know him from Labyrinth. That’s a very different image. Like, he does not
look like this in Labyrinth. He looks a lot scarier. – He wasn’t afraid to step
out of the norms and stuff and to try something different. And David Bowie was just
one of those artists that was just true to himself. – This photo is, like, so iconic. This is his, like, classy persona. [Bleep] yeah, Bowie. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ Thanks for watching us test
