David Bowie survivor - extraneous

Alright so FOUR songs from The Next Day will join us in the next round.

The Title Track
The Stars (Are Out Tonight)
Love is Lost
Where are We Now?

Now we've gotta put through some b-sides etc.

I like Ashley's idea - nominate which TWO songs you'd like to see through. After say three days I'll tally it up and see if we have a consensus. His discography is overwhelming so I don't have any idea where to start for this round. If people want to post youtube clips and stuff that would be sweet.

My votes are for "John, I'm Only Dancing" (the original that was a post-Ziggy standalone single, not the (Again) version) and the James Murphy remix of Love is Lost.

Your night was so boring that it revived the Bowie survivor.

Hope we can chat about John, I'm Only Dancing a bit. Honestly one of my favourite Bowie songs. Better than several actual album tracks. The chorus, which takes a brilliant subversively dark sort of turn after a stock-standard glam Bowie verse, is just to die for.

John, I'm Only Dancing going through so far. Bumping to see if there's any more interest. Laz?

There is a distinct lack of voting for the James Murphy remix.

I'll throw a vote in for James Murphy's Love Is Lost. Agree on John I'm Only Dancing.

All Saints
Sweet Head

Was going to vote for John, I'm Only Dancing, but since it's going to get through I vote for Sweet Head. The original version of Candidate is great, too.

John, I'm Only Dancing, Velvet Goldmine (great song!) and Love is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA) all going through.

Will start the playoffs tonight.

And before you know it, "Heroes" will be crowned the winner

You really think Heroes is the favorite? I don't think it would crack my top ten Bowie songs, honestly, but maybe I'm in the minority there.

It might crack my Top 10, but Young Americans is far and away my #1.

I just struggle to see what will beat it. Should be entertaining. Maybe Station to Station? What I forsee: I think in his glam era there will be too many songs of a similar sound that will split votes, and I think the love will be spread across the tracks from Low. Nothing from then onwards is likely to have a chance. "Heroes" will be a song that will peeps will be loathe to vote out and it will end up hanging on.

^Young Americans your fav Bowie track? Wow. Unexpected, but cool. This is totally unfair but I don't dig that track all that much because it reminds me of so many Brian Cadd songs that my parents used to play before I ever heard Young Americans as I became a Bowie fan.
