It's a nice, catchy song.
Golden Years is catchy song. So is "Oh, you pretty little things." It makes me want to

Haven't heard Bowie's Sorrow.

But Pink Floyd's Sorrow is the best song they've written besides Summer '68.

I bet Khan loves it.

David Bowie is someone I've never really gotten into.

But then again.. I've never really tried yet

I don't know the Pink Floyd Sorrow song.

Please listen to it on my playlist and tell me what you think of Bowie's version. Better yet, here it is:

Not sure how I feel about Word On A Wing. Is this meant to be a ballad or not?
Coke-induced plea to God. He describes the lyrics as something of a hymn for him. There's actually some pretty good lines in that song.

TVC 15 was the best song after Station To Station, though nothing's really stood out tremendously to me from tracks 2-4. Enjoying Stay so far. U2's Stay is better though.

See, it confuses me because some of it feels ballad-y, while other parts feel almost upbeat.

I think Stay is El Mel's favorite track off this album. That or the title track. I'm partial to the title track.

It's kind of a mix, in some ways. Skepticism of God while at the same time asking for help from God. He said he wrote it at the only time in his life when he was actually thinking deeply about God.

I think Cat Power's cover of Wild Is the Wild is as good or better than Bowie's original. It may be the only song from this album I don't like very much.

I'm enjoying the guitar at the end.

Title track's my clear favourite.

Bowie's version is a cover too.

I actually really enjoy it. I think I prefer it to both Word on a Wing and Golden Years.
