The incredible legacy that David Bowie left behind after he died late Sunday night is so large, it's hard to document in a single way. His gender-fluid performances, a space-cover of "Space Oddity," his role in the fall of the Berlin wall, we've written a lot about Bowie at Vox:http://www.vox.com/2016/1/11/10749394/david-bowie-dead-songs-legacy

If you're newer to his music, here are 13 songs that defined him: http://www.vox.com/2016/1/11/10749308/david-bowie-songs/in/10513435

But one thing that will always travel forward now that David Bowie is gone, is his music. Countless celebrities poured on about his influence yesterday, but we also can track those who directly documented his influence in quotations or sampled his music.

Of course, the video above is nowhere near a complete documentation. For even more, you can check out the incredible resource Who Sampled, which inspired a few of the choices in the video, and lists hundreds more. http://www.whosampled.com/David-Bowie/?sp=1
