The Remarkable Influence of David Bowie Shown by the Sheer Number of Songs That Sample His Music

In a wonderful tribute to the tragically late David Bowie, editors at Vox compiled a visual list of nine songs by other musicians that sampled his incredibly prolific and influential work. A complete list of these songs can be found on the sampling information site Who Sampled, which shows nearly 18 pages of Bowie songs that have been sampled, many by more than one musician.

But one thing that will always travel forward now that David Bowie is gone, is his music. Countless celebrities poured on about his influence yesterday, but we also can track those who directly documented his influence in quotations or sampled his music.
