After the sad death of David Bowie on January 10, it seems like a great time to relive that time he inspired one of the most creative shows on TV — American Horror Story.

In the wild, colorful fourth season, Freak Show, American Horror Story's primary anti-hero, Elsa Mars — played to otherworldly perfection by Jessica Lange — sings her heart out to a couple of Bowie's best known and most moving songs.

Revisit this wonderful scene in which Fräulein Elsa wonders if there truly is Life on Mars...

You gotta admit, they got the look pretty spot-on!

When the show drew to a close, the emotional finale was tied together beautifully with another of Bowie's songs. As we see what became of the Freak Show participants, Elsa Mars sings her swan song and makes us all believe that we can be Heroes...

For ever and ever. RIP David Bowie.
