Also, I know you're not a fan of Lodger, but surely you could have thrown a bone to one of its tracks in place of one of the Heroes entries. Red Money is a criminally overlooked track, for one suggestion.



Glad that you drew attention to all these others, though. I heard Teenage Wildlife at a bar last night and goddamn that song is amazing.

They're still deep cuts to the Bowie fans who only know Changes and Starman though. I'd argue only reasonably committed fans are going to know Heart's Filthy Lesson and a lot of people will have forgotten Where Are We Now, I reckon. You won't really find them on best ofs, you know. But I could be wrong.

I had Look Back in Anger on my shortlist. I don't hate Lodger at all (also really like Boys Keep Swinging, DJ, Red Sails), it's just well down on my list.

Glad we can all agree on Teenage Wildlife though 😊

My fav Lodger tracks are Fantastic Voyage, African Night Flight, and Red Money.

I feel like people don't have any love for DJ. But they should because that song is bad-ass.

Pretty sure that's not how the term deep cut works

Pretty sure most people aren't as pedantic as us and don't really care. The last similar article they ran was on Beiber deep cuts so this semantics game isn't that fun. I had never heard any of the songs I listed until I bought his albums.

so dropped into JB to get Blackstar and see what else was available; they only had Outside, Earthling, Reality, the Reality tour DVD/CD, Heathen, The Next Day and Blackstar haha. The rest had been thoroughly raided. So I'll have to order Scary Monsters.

Outside's booklet is intense. I look forward to getting to know it more. I wonder what Bowie and Eno would have done with it had he lived on. Now we'll never know.

Thanks man, means a lot. I actually didn't know it until I started researching a few days ago; insane. And I agree, I said as much. I still can't pick a fav Bowie album but it is very deserving of the term masterpiece.

Absolutely. Low is one of the perhaps two or three albums that really made me a music fan. It opened so many avenues to explore. Definitely in my top-5 of all time.

Low is great. I'm still a fairly casual fan whose only really heard half Bowie's albums. But I like Low a ton, and would thank Salome back in the testje days if I'm not mistaken, for that one.

You really shouldn't be. We're not nearly as scary as the media portrays us to be. Canadians are a different story, you should be very afraid of them.

Listened to The Man Who Sold the World this morning and realized it is a lot stronger than I remember. A lot of it points directly to Ziggy in sound and texture despite Hunky Dory sandwiched in between.

Bowie's VEVO Account smashed the record for most views in one day with 51M. Blackstar also went #1 and he probably has a very good shot at a few grammy's next year.
He went out on top.
