It is.

But Bowie's best stuff has always been album tracks, not singles.

Absolute Beginners
Lady Grinning Soul
All The Madmen
Space Oddity
Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud
Sell Me A Coat
Little Bombardier
There Is A Happy Land
Silly Boy Blue
Memory Of A Free Festival 1&2
After All

Hang Onto Yourself

The list is endless,Christ, just go & get all the albums, you won't be disappointed!

1. Young Americans - This song's chorus has some cathartic effect on me, I feel better after hearing it. I see I am the only one to include this in their top 7. Oh well, to each their own.

2. Rock N' Roll Suicide - Like it was mentioned about Five Years, this tune has a vocal crescendo at the end that is incredibly powerful.

3. Life on Mars? - This strikes me as Bowie's best musical composition. Not lyrics or emotion, but pure songcraft.

4. Starman - I love how the intro sounds out of tune and wandering, then that drum roll locks the song right into place.

5. Heroes - I hadn't heard the original 6 minute album version until recently, and I was blown away.

6. Slow Burn - Had no idea that was Townshend, but the track rocks. I always listen to this and "Something in the Air" together.

7. Ziggy Stardust - Perfect riff, excellent interplay between the guitars and vocals.

I forgot so many songs it's depressing.

Brau's list is completely awesome, especially.

Not really from his best, or most creative period, Underground was OK but the rest of that LP really isn't worthy of his name.

Ziggy's had a few spins... I think it's going to take a while to get into. Five Years and Lady Stardust were not bad!

I'll just name one because everyone else has named so many of the best. But I think only one other person named

Sweet Thing

and the reason it's in my top 7 is because of his vocals. It gives me goosebumps.
