21 Shining Star (Making My Love)

I love this. It tells a story; about drugs and hardships.

I enjoy this song very much. I don't understand how my dad could hate this song so much! He heard a bit of it, saw the music video, and immediately started talking crap. He still ain't know his daughter listens to him - kaitlynrad11

This is a song of pure genius, the words of a man grappling with his own mortality. Knowing that this album was his final gift to the world just makes every song on this even better and more meaningful.

One of the most brilliant songs ever. The perfect goodbye of the bigger star.

When I heard this for the first time, I was very close to crying. - BeatlesFan1964

A wonderful, chilling song. One of the greatest Bowie has made.

Such an amazing, timeless song - the best thing he's written for decades! Lots of people don't like it because it's so different to anything else... well ever. Definitely deserves to be in the top 10

25 Sound and Vision Sound and Vision

A bit surprised that this song is not in the top 10, or even on the top 23 for that matter

Should be much higher. Strange construction and constantly surprising.

This is one if my favorites deserves to be in top 10 I'm disappointed :(

No "Low" songs on the first page? I must be crazy... It's his greatest album

Definitely a favorite! Awesome lyrics, melody, everything. Check out the BBC liver version from 72!

I love the piano. Unlike life on Mars, which has piano, singing, drums, strings, guitar, a synth (or whatever it is) I can do this song all by myself, unless I ask the audience to clap along to the chorus.
I love this song.

A massively underrated song. So I'm voting it up! - keycha1n

An absolutely brilliant piece of funky plastic soul. One of his best songs bar none.

An underrated song from Bowie's discography, containing probably the greatest saxophone solo in the 70's.

The best choir-arrangement I've heard in a soul song. Luther Vandross and David Bowie created magic!

This song belongs in the top five let alone the top thirty

Tarantino's inglorious basterds led me to this gem. I love how it builds up to..."with gasoline!.."

It's silly and ridiculous, but somehow really magnificent and creative.

Love this song. Bowie at his creative best.

Best song from David Bowie ever

One of the best songs ever doing it for school

Greatest song in movie for its time

Such an amazing song from one of my favourite 80's films.

36 I'm Afraid of Americans I'm Afraid of Americans

It's cool to think that David got Nine Inch Nails to produce this single.

This song is awesome. And I love Nine Inch Nails to.

David Bowie + Nine Inch Nails= absolutely amazing

It's just beautiful in every sense of the word.
