David Bowie has his own channel on Vimeo — and he's released a bunch of his hit film clips from the 1970s and '80s.

There are many reasons to love David Bowie: Jareth, Nikola Tesla, Twin Peaks and a little thing about an incredible music career going back nearly 50 years, across 24 studio albums and spanning almost every pop style, from funk to electronica.

Although many Bowie fans might argue about which was his "best" period, there's no doubt that he produced some spectacular songs during the 70s and 80s. Now, 36 video clips from those two decades can be watched for free on Vimeo — courtesy of the musician himself.

The videos are mostly songs, with an interview and "Best-of" video thrown in there for good measure. However, we are certain there's something to satisfy everyone, including "Rebel Rebel", "Life on Mars", "Space Oddity" and "Let's Dance" ... actually, we think they're all good. Go have a listen for yourself.

It's a good year so far for Bowie fans. His first album in a decade, The Next Day, was released last month to tremendous acclaim, and those who are lucky enough to be in the UK between now and 11 August can check out a massive David Bowie exhibition at the Victoria & Albert museum.
