David bowie survivor - the final

Hard to believe, but here we are. The final.

I'm no historian, but it has been at least, what, five years since Peef started and ultimately failed to do a Bowie survivor? And many people doubted my ability to finish this one, but here we stand, ready to go, to pick the best David Bowie song according to a handful of people in Just the Bang and the Clatter.

So what will it be, and why?





Vote for your FAVOURITE of these two songs.

Argh. These are two legitimately great songs. Neither of them is in my top ten Bowie songs, though, which I suppose shouldn't matter, but it's making it hard for me to pick one.

Haha, guess it wouldn't be a Cobbler poll without one final fuck-up.

Life On Mars? barely edges out Heroes. That ascension to the chorus just gets me every time. Great piano, lyrics, vocals. Both songs are among his best.

I can't choose either. Will have to give them both a few spins. Both among his very best, definitely.

Also pretty annoyed CLF also apparently fucks with thread titles.

This, from the man who didn't even capitalize Bowie's last name.


 
(I thought I posted that last night before I left work, but apparently I didn't hit submit, so it was just sitting here waiting to be snarky when I arrived at work this morning)

Well, that's why I put that in the spoiler tag. At the time, you hadn't explained and it was well timed...now it's just a joke that was lost to time
