David Bowie: 25 of Artist's Most Unforgettable Onscreen Moments

Five decades of star turns and innovative clips from rock's ultimate video artist

"Oh! You Pretty Things" on 'The Old Grey Whistle Test' (1972)

A live clip from 1972, for the BBC program The Old Grey Whistle Test. The young Bowie sits down at the piano to sing this Hunky Dory ballad, straddling the bench in a jumpsuit with the front buttons undone. He already seems otherworldly, staring into the camera with his disarming off-color eyes. Nobody knew yet how far out he was planning to get.
