In TheNineties, Bowie returned to solo work with 1993's ''Black Tie White Noise'', an electronic/jazz/house hybrid album which yielded another Top 10 single in "Jump They Say". At the end of the year he would go to provide the music for the BBC mini-series ''The Buddha of Suburbia'', which was also released as an album. 1994-5 saw Bowie reunite with Eno to produce ''1. Music/{{Outside}}'', a much DarkerAndEdgier Industrial RockOpera which explored the concept of death by art. Slated to have two follow-ups, 1997 saw Bowie issue ''Music/{{Earthling}}'', which explored DrumNBass. The song "I'm Afraid of Americans" was notable for being remixed by NineInchNails and issued as a single. Trent Reznor also featured in the video as a stalker tracking down a paranoid Bowie.

* SecondVerseCurse: An unusual inversion of this trope with "Heroes". The single edit starts out with the third verse ("I, I wish you could swim..."), so many people aren't aware of the first two verses, or that the "I won't be king" section is a DarkReprise of the first verse.

Website/TheOnion's A.V. Club has an excellent [[http://www.avclub.com/articles/david-bowie,47556/ Primer]] article that runs down his musical career, and Radio Music/{{Soulwax}}'s short film [[http://vimeo.com/53207758 Dave]] is an excellent introduction to Bowie as well, with the audio consisting solely of numerous songs by Bowie and the visuals recreating his album covers and music videos.

** The filmed-but-unreleased ConceptVideo for "The Pretty Things Are Going to Hell" — the title of which combines ''Music/HunkyDory'''s "Oh! You Pretty Things" and [[Music/TheStooges Iggy and the Stooges]]' "Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell" from ''Music/RawPower'' — was based around Bowie encountering four of his "past selves" (The Man Who Sold the World, Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke, and Pierrot) as played by life-sized, mannequin-like puppets. See below for more…
** The packaging for ''[[http://virusfonts.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/bowie_next.jpg The Next Day]]'' is literally the packaging for ''[[http://allthingsmusicplus.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/bowieheroes.jpg "Heroes"]]'' with the original title crossed out and a white box with the new title pasted over his face on the front, and a similar white box on the back for the track listing. The first released track, "Where Are We Now?", references several Berlin landmarks.
