*** Bowie's appearance on the Crosby Christmas show (where he performed "Peace On Earth/The Little Drummer Boy") wearing a suit jacket, shirt and slacks, as opposed to his usual stage costumes, was in itself was different. Additionally, Bowie -- still with Ziggy Stardust fresh in everyone's minds -- was the last performer an older, more conservative audience would have expected to be invited to perform on a Bing Crosby Christmas broadcast. Yet, the duet earned critical acclaim with both old and young alike, and even prompted Bing to remark that he enjoyed working with Bowie and that he was sure to be popular with his children. Bowie, meanwhile, admitted his mother was a Bing Crosby fan.

His one HeavyMetal album with the Spiders, ''The Man Who Sold the World'' -- his next album was the start of his glam phase, but still closer to his first two albums than this one.one.
** His Christmas duet with BingCrosby, "Peace On Earth/The Little Drummer Boy." Different than anything else he ever recorded, this ballad of peace, love and hope was initially recorded in 1977 for what would become Bing's last Chrsitmas special, as Crosby died just weeks after finishing taping of the show. However, the song never became the iconic holiday song it would until 1982, five years after Crosby's death and the song unexpectedly became a top 5 hit in the United Kingdom; the song never charted in the United States, but was heavily played for the first time for the Christmas 1982 season.

* 2017 - ''No Plan'' [[note]]A four-track EP, featuring music intended for the "Lazarus" musical, released on what would have been his 70th birthday. With the exception of Lazarus, the three tracks (No Plan, Killing A Little Time and When I Met You) are said to be "the three last known songs Bowie recorded" before his death.[[/note]]
