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
It's not my favorite (that would be life on Mars) but it should be at least in the top 20!V 1 Comment
"Don't believe in yourself; don't deceive with belief. Knowledge comes with death's release."
Utterly devastated to learn about the passing of one of my heroes. Rest in peace, David. - PetSounds
This song is so beautiful, and also lyrically profound. Full of honesty and philosophy.
Absolutly great lyrics and often misunderstood.
This song calls Faith BS. I don't really know what that means, but he's wrong.
I love this. It tells a story; about drugs and hardships.
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
So cool and so up to date.V 1 Comment
It should be in the top ten. Probably his most honest song. - PetSounds
Strong, straight and simple... wonderful
From one of the best movies of all timeV 2 Comments
Conversation with god in a direct way.
Maybe not a top ten, but one of my favourites
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!
I love the sax at the beginning. I love it. I also love the vocals throughout. soft to loud to softV 3 Comments
Such a great song. I've been obsessed with it recently. Just hearing the talking "...it's Warhol actually, as in War hall...". And then going into the song and the ending applause is amazing. 100% recommended! - kaitlynrad11
On the album Hunky Dory, Fill Your Heart leads right into this song really well. They should be listened two together; they are both spectacular.
I love this song. Its not just a piece of music. It's a work of art
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 :(
Amazing trackV 3 Comments
This ine is the best
Tarantino's inglorious basterds led me to this gem. I love how it builds up to..."with gasoline!.."
Jean Genie -- One of Bowie's greatest musical entrances This single made Alladin Sane the album that it is --spectacular. And the video for this was one of the first conceptual videos to intermingle concert, backstage, and canned shots. Needs to be way higher than 38th. This is ridiculous.V 2 Comments
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
Number 1 needed. I think this song is even better than Bohemian Rhapsody. - DCfnaf

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.
It's just beautiful in every sense of the word.
The first Bowie song I heard, I was 12...
My favorite song of all time. The Labyrinth is also my favorite movie of all time. Both are wonderful.
