The world was saddened by the sudden news that rock and roll legend David Bowie died on January 10th after a battle with cancer; only two days after his 69th birthday.

David Bowie was an icon, not only for rock music, but also in fashion. He developed an alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, who was flamboyant and fearless with his style.

Bowie also dabbled in acting. He appeared in 'The Man Who Fell To Earth,' 'Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence,' 'The Presitge,' and others.

One of Bowie's most iconic roles was that of Jareth the Goblin King in 'The Labyrinth.' If you haven't seen the movie, here's a basic summary: Jennifer Connolly has to fight her way through a tricky maze to retrieve her infant brother from the custody of the goblin king. Only the goblin king has a big crush on Connolly, so things get complicated. It's very '80's. The effects are terrible and the acting is iffy, but it's a fun movie that allowed us to enjoy David Bowie in tights.

Jareth the Goblin King is quite philosophical in the movie. So, to help those of us mourning the death of David Bowie, here are a few quotes from Jareth to ease our pain.

Everything I've done, I've done for you. I move the stars for no one.

 

It's only forever, not long at all.

 

Your eyes can be so cruel, just as I can be so cruel.

 

I ask for so little. Just fear me. Love me. Do as I ask, and I shall be your slave.

 

Live without your sunlight, love without your heartbeat.

 

How you turn my world, you precious thing...

 

BONUS! The lyrics to our favorite Labyrinth song, 'Dance Magic Dance.'

You remind me of the babe
What babe? the babe with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the babe

I saw my baby, crying hard as babe could cry
What could I do?
My baby's love had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew:

What kind of magic spell to use?
Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs' tails
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Put that baby spell on me
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby, make him free

I saw my baby, trying hard as babe could try
What could I do?
My baby's fun had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew

What kind of magic spell to use?
Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs' tails
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)

Put that baby spell on me
