** ''Blackstar'' débuted at #1 on the charts in a wide variety of countries worldwide, many of them (including the U.S.) countries in which Bowie had never had a #1 album before.

** In a similar vein, part of the reason why he chose to shoot the video for "Let's Dance" in the pub of a small town (Carinda) in country New South Wales was to call attention to the racism faced by Australian Aborigines. He also called Australia one of the most racially intolerant countries in the world, also in 1983.

* He criticised Creator/{{MTV}} for not giving enough attention to black and minority artists. This was in ''1983'', mind you.

He made demo recordings of five additional songs, and called his producer Tony Visconti a week before his death saying he wanted to make another album. The fact that he kept working until the very end is even more of a DyingMomentOfAwesome. Of course, it also makes his death into even more of a TearJerker.
