Mine are:

1. Life on Mars?
2. The man who sold the world
3. Ashes to ashes

And of course, "Under Pressure" (Queen feat Bowie). Actually I would love to hear U2 do that song with Bowie at a concert, just for fun, even if it would sound like hell.

Its been done, but the other way around. Not that particular song but Bono joined Bowie at the Richfield Coliseum, Ceveland 20-05-90 to sing Gloria.

This duet is available on the U2 bootleg The Unforgettable Duets

Changesbowie is a great CD.

Love that Bowie! Here are some of my faves:

Queen Bitch
Hang On To Yourself
Suffragette City
Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing
Station To Station
Look Back In Anger

I think you can hear a lot of Bowie influence on a lot of U2's albums, especially their 90's output.

As easy as it is for me to say Bad is U2's best, Heroes is Bowie's best.

Yeah I know, but thanks for the adress, I´m gonna listen to it now ´cause Gloria is one of my favorite U2-songs (Gloria and Bad). But I just REALLY love "Under Pressure" and I would give away my left hand to hear that song live, hehe

It sounds like Bowie sings back up on Stateless. It's probably Eno though...

Some of my Bowie favorites...DJ, Sound & Vision, TVC15, Space Oddity, Wild Is The Wind, Fame-John Lennon co-wrote & sings on this one...Life on Mars as well...
