CSPC: David Bowie Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 8 – Picking Up

It is hard to tell how much of the Reality to The Next Day increase is due to real improvement or due to the development of the streaming market. That market climbed so much from 2013 to 2016 though, plus the boost of his passing, the improvement seems real as most of those plays happened when The Next Day itself was a catalog record.

Logically, Blackstar pursued the increase even if we may have expected more.

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??
