CSPC: David Bowie Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 4 – Hero Alone

Both Low and Heroes maintain a status similar to previous albums. Overall, most songs are over 1 million. The main difference is clearly Heroes title track which is up to an impressive 77 million plays.

In comparison, Lodger album truly pales as it only contains two songs with more than 1 million streams resulting in only 13,000 equivalent album sales.

Once again, the singer immediately recovered thanks to Ashes to Ashes hit which pushes Scary Monsters to 54,000 equivalent album sales.

Also the version of All The Young Dudes with Ian Hunter and Bowie on vocals on the Mott The Hoople page doesn’t show up on his features.

Just noticed that a number of Bowie songs have recently been been greyed out on spotify and their totals no longer show on the spotify tool report.They’re all on the albums Platinum Collection and Sound + Vision.
Also for some reason the songs credited to Bowie and the Spider on the Bowie at the Beeb album have a separate artist id??
