David Bowie has invited fans to download his songs and then create a mash-up. Software enables users to edit songs, and superimpose one song’s words on another song’s music, etc. The remixing of Jay-Z and The Beatles into something known as the Gray Album created quite a controversy earlier this year. But Bowie is telling his fans to go ahead and mash-away. Unfortunately, no one young enough to know about the new remix technologies has ever heard of David Bowie.
