** And then there's the {{Bookends}} feeling of the entire album. The styles of each track go in reverse order of every style Bowie has done throughout his career, before finally ending with a song reminiscent of his ''[[Music/LowDavidBowieAlbum Low]]'' sound.

The last song has a musical nod to "A New Career In A New Town"

** A few days after the release of ''Blackstar'', it was [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/david-bowie-planned-post-blackstar-album-thought-he-had-few-more-months-20160113 revealed]] that Bowie wanted to make another album and made demo recordings of five songs, and called his producer Tony Visconti a week before his death wanting to work again. The fact that he was still working up to the very end and doesn't seem to have been ready to die somehow makes his death feel even more tragic.

* "Strangers When We Meet" is a rather strange example. While it works as a TearJerker at the end of ''1. Outside'' '''musically''', its '''text''' adds even more to the creepiness of this album if you consider that it's supposed to be sung by the Minotaur character.

However, [[RearrangeTheSong the acoustic]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n22ImOPXOnw version]] makes the lyrics present in the original a clear case of LyricalDissonance. -->"And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels\\ And I'm gone, through a crack in the past\\ Like a dead man walking"

** What's even sadder is that the fans went into a state of denial, asserting that it ''had'' to be a hoax. These hopes were squashed by a [[https://twitter.com/ManMadeMoon/status/686441083648212992 heartrending tweet from his son Duncan Jones]] confirming his death. ** His death makes certain lyrics in his latest album, ★ (especially in the title track), haunting due to the factor that his cancer had been diagnosed 18 months before the album's release.

** The opening track, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjyC4pzOsOg "Sunday"]], was heart-wrenching enough when it was released. Then January 10th 2016, a Sunday, came around...
