Your Top Seven David Bowie Songs...

Just an artist I'm really starting to get into now, real favourite of mine. Just wanted to see what everyone else thought as well, and try to elaborate a bit so this doesn't just become one of those lame list threads...

1. Space Oddity
2. Ziggy Stardust
3. Starman
4. "Heroes"
5. John, I'm Only Dancing
6. Rebel, Rebel
7. Oh! You Pretty Things

I really love Space Oddity. The lyrics are fantastic, the whole song is to die for.

1. Station to Station
2. Rock n Roll Suicide
3. Cracked Actor
4. Slow Burn
5. Memory of a Free Festival
6. Scary Monsters
7. I'm Afraid of Americans

Mojo had a great 60th Birthday special on Bowie, with a cute foreword by Kate Bush.

Station to Station is my favourite overall album, almost just for the title track...let the Thin White Duke roll on....

Oh my God, don't make me choose.

I'm not claiming these to be in order necessarily, but I'll just list seven of my favorites (not counting "Under Pressure" because that would just make this whole process that much harder ).

1. Station to Station

OH MY GOD. Ten minutes and twelve seconds of perfection. Once the song kicks into high gear at around 5 minutes in, it's just unstoppable. "IT'S NOT THE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE COCAINE, I'M THINKING THAT IT MUST BE LOVE"

x infinity

2. "Heroes"

One of the best love songs, ever. Seriously. Despite some questionable lyrics on the full version ("Cause we're lovers, and that is a fact/'Cause we're lovers, and that is that"), it's almost impossible to match this song's raw emotion and power. Oh God. It's so good.

3. Space Oddity

The single that started it all. Such a great song, with cool spaceman imagery in the lyrics. Classic.

4. Changes

Turnnnn and faceee the strangeee

5. Sound and Vision

Awesomely great and innovative song that is as cool as it is tuneful.

6. Golden Years

What a fantastic single. It's got everything, even FINGERSNAPS.

7. Modern Love

A definite contender for his best post-70's song. So catchy and great it just kills me sometimes.

Others that are strong contenders:

The Man Who Sold The World
1984
Ashes to Ashes
Fashion
The Heart's Filthy Lesson
Strangers When We Meet
Thru These Architect's Eyes
Scary Monsters
And a whole bunch of other ones

The guy's a GOD.

1. Drive In Saturday: Statley soul ballad. Bowie's vocal is perfect, and the song leans heavily on a R&B groove for the verse, before the chorus lifts the whole thing up. Love it. Love it. Love it.

2. Sweet Head: Rollicking glam stomper. Overtly sexual in nature. Subtle does not apply. "While you're down there..."

3. Sound & Vision: Champagne pops and that bass and guitar play. A grooving little pop tune. So care free. It just move along lifting you up, and next thing you know, it's done... "waiting for the gift of sound and vision."

4. Moonage Daydream: a dream from outer space announced by the greatest guitar riff ever. Highly sexual. Folky space rock, the Mick takes over the outro. Liftoff.

5. Slow Burn: Mid paced rocker. Bowie goes into high drama for the chorus. All the classic traits are there. Horns. Acoustic guitars. But sexual tones are replaced with worldly confusion. That voice. Only this time it's Pete Townsend playing the electric guitar. He plays like God. "There's fear overhead, there's fear on the ground... SLOW BURRRRRRRRNNNNNNNN"

6. Five Years: Haunting. A slow build of a tune with a lyrical crescendo to break heart "Your face, your race, the way that you talk, I miss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk." Fucking devastating.

7. Heroes: inspiration for the ages.

I'm surprised at how few of you are mentioning 'Changes'. Isn't it one of his biggest ever hits?
