Best David Bowie Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 See Emily Play See Emily Play
82 Panic in Detroit Panic in Detroit

It's a shame that Aladdin Sane doesn't get as much recognition as albums like Ziggy Stardust or Hunky Dory. This song contains some of Mick Ronson's finest guitar work, and it's got some strange, but catchy lyrics in it. The drum beat is very rhythmic, and I consider it to be among Bowie's best work. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

"Having scored a trillion dollars
I made a run back home
Found him slumped across the table
A gun and me alone"

Can't belive Panic in Detroit hasn't made the top 50.

83 Days Days

A fine addition to the final album.. Consider "Never Get old" as well.

84 Seven Seven
85 Slow Burn Slow Burn

This song should be higher up the list - Jiorl

87 I'm Deranged I'm Deranged

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

88 Where Are We Now? Where Are We Now?
89 Survive Survive

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!

92 Memory of a Free Festival Memory of a Free Festival
93 Warszawa Warszawa

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.

94 Cracked Actor Cracked Actor
95 Reality Reality

His most underrated song in my opinion.

96 Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud
97 Never Get Old Never Get Old
98 Hallo Spaceboy Hallo Spaceboy V 2 Comments
99 Seven Years In Tibet Seven Years In Tibet

Very deep and atmospheric... lyrics are very cryptic, and this is definitely the best off "Earthling". Should be at least in the top 20...

Deep and eerie but sound really good though. best on earthling

100 Loving the Alien Loving 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
