Mad science: We have the tools to rebuild Bowie.

Dr. Nick Troop, at the University of Hertfordshire, created a concordance of Bowie lyrics, cross-ref'ed the results with commercial success on an album-by-album basis, and then created a program that would create new lyrics based on the results. The end result would, statistically, be David Bowie's most commercially successful song ever.

Finally, Bowie's transformation from human to abstract process will be completed!

I know, Dave. It's no "Dance Magic." Still, you can't argue with science!
