The hair. The moves. The bulge.

With so many remembrances of David Bowie currently flooding the internet, it's vitally important that we not forget about this one: His eternal legacy as the swoon-worthy Goblin King of "Labyrinth."

For those of us who were kids in the 1980s, Bowie was terrifying and intriguing as the antagonist of this fantasy flick... that is, until we weren't kids anymore, at which point we realized that Jareth the Goblin King was basically sex on a stick.

Below, we're remembering all the times that David Bowie had the power of voodoo in his magnificently tight goblin trousers.

When his glam rock mullet blew so gently in the wind.
