Now, Screwtape, it's just a matter of figuring out a good system for voting for albums. It's difficult since this is more of a ratio kind of thing.
Every album gets at least one song. That's 25 spots including Buddha of Suburbia and Labyrinth soundtracks. That leaves 39 spots. If we do a multiple choice poll asking which 10 albums deserve more than one song, that will give us a good ratio of which albums are more heavily liked and we can do the math after the fact. It's not perfect but like I said we can do the math after the fact.

The album we are using are:
David Bowie (1967)
Space Oddity (1969)
The Man Who Sold the World (1970)
Hunky Dory (1971)
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)
Aladdin Sane (1973)
Pin Ups (1973)
Diamond Dogs (1974)
Young Americans (1975)
Station to Station (1976)
Low (1977)
"Heroes" (1977)
Lodger (1979)
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) (1980)
Let's Dance (1983)
Tonight (1984)
Labyrinth Soundtrack (1986)
Never Let Me Down (1987)
Black Tie White Noise (1993)
The Buddha of Suburbia (1993)
Outside (1995)
Earthling (1997)
'hours...' (1999)
Heathen (2002)
Reality (2003)

What about various b-sides and singles?

His version of All the Young Dudes, Velvet Goldmine, and John I'm Only Dancing need to be included.

I'll work on a list of rarities. That leaves 38 spots and will be easier to calculate.

That's similar to what I was thinking. Plus the Non-Album Tracks version.

I'll do the polling if you want me to, though I will need YLB or LeMel to pick up the polls for me when I go to Atlanta later in the month.

I'm going to have a fairly busy April/May with school and drama-related stuff, but I'll try and pick up the slack if you need me.

Do you want to make the album poll now? Get this thing in motion?

Memory of a Free Festival? Or maybe I just have the single version of it.

That's the only one I could think of.

Sounds like a plan. I suppose we'll figure out the exact spots after some voting occurs.

I'll try to explain the whole thing in the first post.

What about all the re-release bonus tracks? I didn't see Bombers listed on the Non-Album List.

You're right. I'll quickly compile a list.

Screwtape, I'm currently working on the master list and introduction. I'll send it to you when I'm finished, then I'll post that.

I'll make the album voting a separate thread.

Okay. Then I'll let you handle the remastered bonus tracks. That sounds good.

Just been browsing BOWIENET, interesting item caught my beady eye;


BOWIE'S 30 GREATEST SONGS IN UNCUT NEXT WEEK

A couple of songs from your old scrapbook...

Well the headline and the above advert say it all really.

The June issue of UNCUT magazine has a Bowie cover and a large feature, within which the magazine attempts to identify David Bowie's thirty greatest songs via the opinions of thirty music world luminaries.

It's an impressive list of contributors, from David's own contemporaries such as Jimmy Page and Keith Richards, via chubby little losers like Ricky Gervais, to relative new boys such as Alex Turner.

There are some very cool choices and a lot of lovely things said about David in the feature, but sadly we're not allowed to give you any more detail than that right now as we don't want to kill UNCUT's own online exclusive which will publish all of the contributors along with their choices, once the mag is published.

The magazine will also include the CD: REBEL REBEL: A tribute to David Bowie, which does what it says on the tin.

The June issue of UNCUT hits the shelves on April 24th and subscribers' doormats shortly before.


Don't know what the top 30 would be, but its been a while since I last compiled a top 30 BOWIE, so here's mine.

01. Heroes
02. Ziggy Stardust
03. Stationtostation
04. Quicksand
05. Always crashing in the same car
06. Moonage Daydream
07. The Speed Of Life
08. New Career In A New Town
09. Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing
10. Cygnet Committee
11. Teenage Wildlife
12. Space Oddity
13. V2 Schnieder
14. The Secret Life Of Arabia
15. Warzawa
16. Loving The Alien
17. I Would Be Your Slave
18. Velvet Goldmine
19. Be My Wife
20. Sound & Vision
21. It's No Game, Pt1
22. Seven
23. Golden Years
24. Life On Mars
25. The Width Of A Circle
26. Lady Stardust
27. Lady Grinning Soul
28. Time
29. Red Sails
30. My Death

on another day it will look very different.

BTW, Morrissey's new single will include a cover of Drive In Saturday on some formats.
