Gr8at: David Bowie

As I described in my last post, there will never be anyone like David Bowie. He really does belong in the same realm as the likes of Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury. Genius musicians with incredible stage presence and a seemingly infinite level of creativity and influence that have inspired every generation. Below are my favourite songs from the Brixton maestro. Even allowing that quite a few of his most famous hits are on the list, they still omit some some real gems.  Songs like Life on Mars, Under Pressure, Dancing in the Street, Modern Love, The Man who Sold the World, China Girl, Fame and Young Americans would have still made it a quality Gr8at. Which of his songs have you most connected with?

  1. Oh fuck, there’s too many. Aside from the usual greatest hits, “Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)”, “Absolute Beginners”, “Because You’re Young”, “Station to Station”, “Win”, “Moonage Daydream”, “Lady Stardust”, “The Width of a Circle”, “All the Madmen”, “Cygnet Committee”, “Wild-Eyed Boy From Freecloud”, “Loving the Alien”, “Nite Flights”, “Hallo Spaceboy”, “The Motel”, “The Next Day”. There’s too many from that period of ’69-’80 for me.

  2. Let’s Dance has always been my favourite. And also the songs from Labyrinth hold a special place in my heart as it was first time I had heard his wonderful voice.

  3. Life on Mars is my absolute favourite. I also love China Girl, Ashes to Ashes, Golden Years, Jean Genie… just everything really.
