Early Bowie and other acts like The Velvet Underground and the New York Dolls were really precursors to the whole punk movement, which really didn't explode onto the scene until 1975-1976. So I would say no.

However, several Bowie albums from the late 70's and early 80's can definitely be considered for this.

Lodger
Scary Monsters
Let's Dance
Tonight
Never Let Me Go

Not that anyone would want to use anything from the last two...

I think that more than proves he never listens to that one.

Tonight and Never Let Me Down are almost complete rubbish, save for a song or two.

El-Mel, I can't believe you forgot Low.

Scary Monsters definitely has the whole New Wave vibe to it.

Did that on purpose. It influenced New Wave but isn't melodic enough to fit in with it directly. Plus the second half isn't even close to much of what people are going to use on their list.

Same goes for Heroes.

"Sound and Vision" fits extremely well, methinks.

Agreed. And Let's Dance has some awful stuff on it as well. It's weird - the first three tracks are 80's classics, and you're thinking wow, Bowie's made a huge change in sound and it's working, but after that, save for maybe one or two more songs, it falls flat on its face.

Modern Love FTW. I've always loved that song. The beginning is cool.

Phanan, I've submitted my entry to you via private message. I sent you a second PM right after because Interference had censored my upload link, so I had to tell you what to type between the dots.

Hope you got both of them.

I've never done one of these before. Are the files supposed to be uploaded to a specific site? Should they be separate song files, or one big zip file?

I've always loved "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Cat People", and the title track, other than that... meh.

Uploading to a large .zip to mediafire is the easiest possible thing.
