Top 10 David Bowie songs


Top 10 David Bowie songs



No doubt this will be a debated topic, as it should be. With a catalogue like Bowie's it's next to impossible to narrow down and rank a top ten. But what better way to respect his memory than to discuss his work?


My personal Top 10:

1. Heroes (it's everyone's favorite but it's perfection)

2. Ashes to Ashes

3. Oh! You Pretty Things

4. Space Oddity

5. Life on Mars?

6. Rebel Rebel

7. Modern Love

8. All The Young Dudes (let's not forget it was written by Bowie)

9. Lazarus

10. Sound and Vision

The sound and texture found on Hunky Dory are what makes Bowie so special to me.

Honestly, i think the magnificence of his last album deserves a top spot on all musiclist, regardless of genre, language and even releasedate.. 

He was always into concepts and theatrical elements, and Blackstar was a **bleep**ing Requiemonly matched by Mozart's likewise. 


But if i had to make a list it would be:

1: Life on Mars

2: Space Oddity

3: Blackstar

4: Lazarus

5: Golden years

6: Heroes

7: Im afraid of americans

8. Ashes to Ashes

9: Man who sold the world

10: Rebel rebel


Tough to choose, but here goes:


1. Space Oddity

2, Changes

3. The Man Who Sold The World

4. Ziggy Stardust

5. Heroes

6. Starman

7. Ashes to Ashes

8. Rebel Rebel
