85I'm Deranged

Didn't this appear in twin peaks: fire walk with me? great song though - Jiorl

86Where Are We Now?
87Survive

When I was going to school with a sore stomach, I thought "I'll Survive."

Survive is one of the best songs on the album "'Hours'..." as well as Thursday's Child and Something In The Air!

88Soul Love

My favourite song from Ziggy Stardust. Profound lyrics and one of Bowie's catchiest choruses.

Beautiful song, maybe the best of Ziggy. Marty Jones cover, with Bowie at sax and chorus, is very beautiful too.

89Buddha of Suburbia

91The Bewlay Brothers

I can't believe this isn't higher up in this list. This is one of my favorite songs by bowie. Knowing the lyrics are about his half brother makes them even more haunting. I get chills when I listen to this song. Beautiful.

One of Bowie's most haunting songs. A perfectly dark folk psychedelic trance. Absolutely needs to be higher.

That Exotic Backward Masked Horn Stirring up the chorus is amazing

Since his death, this has become my favourite Bowie song.

92Warszawa

The making of a real artist, is when they challenge all you are expecting, with something like Warszawa. We didn't have what in the 70's, but this and more were soon quelled with the beauty and pain contained within this masterpiece. This is him, for me.

I don't know why this master piece is not the number one of the list. Like Saint Vincent says, is my song for the saddest moments.

93Cracked Actor
94Reality

His most underrated song in my opinion.

95Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud
96Never Get Old

98Loving the Alien

Great song, lyrics are outstanding. One criticism maybe (a bit) over-produced

Love it, and I agree the lyrics are outstanding. Best song tied with blue jean on this album - Jiorl

Great song, tied with blue jean on this album - Jiorl

100Because You're Young

My Scary Monsters best song. At the same level of Ashes to ashes and Scream like a baby. What a guitar!
