David Bowie

To help celebrate the huge and very welcome comeback this year from the legendary David Bowie — not to mention the recent reissue of his widely acclaimed current album The Next Day with five new songs and a pair of remixes added on — we’ve got a killer prize back to award to one very lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs reader in the U.S.

The prize pack includes:

  • The Next Day Extra, the new 2CD/1DVD expanded reissue that features the original 14-track album on one disc, a second CD with 10 B-sides, bonus tracks, remixes and new songs, and a DVD featuring the five music videos made for tracks off the album.
  • Three promo-only 10-inch vinyl singles for Next Day tracks “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” “Valentine’s Day” and “The Next Day.”

TO ENTER: Just drop a comment below naming the song that first got you into David Bowie — and feel free to share the story of how you became a fan. Oh, and if you’re viewing this on the Slicing Up Eyeballs app, you may e-mail your entry to info@slicingupeyeballs.com.

RULES: Contest is limited to residents of the United States only (sorry, label’s rules). We’ll take entries until 5 p.m. EST Friday, Nov. 22. After that point, we’ll select one winners at random and contact him or her via e-mail. One entry per person.

ETC.: Below, check out the music video for “Love Is Lost” (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA), one of the bonus tracks on The Next Day Extra.

UPDATE: Contest is now closed. Thank you all for entering and sharing your memories. Winner has been notified.
