41 Blue Jean

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

Love this song. Bowie at his creative best.

42 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...

Great song and I love when he played the sax himself.

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

43 Yassassin
44 Fascination
45 Blue Jeans
46 Drive-In Saturday

This is one of the most underrated of all of their hits

This is in my top10, absolutely fabolous song

47 As the World Falls Down

Absolutely fantastic song, nice lyrics and good melody.

This is the 1st song I've heard of him. So, it's an obvious pick

48 We are the Dead
49 5.15 the Angels Have Gone
50 Soul 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.

51 1984
52 Beauty and the Beast

"Any guitarist who plays Beauty and the Beast... You know they get erections" - Robert Fripp

53 Stay

Amazing song. Should not be this low.

The greatest Bowie track (In my humble opinion).

54 I Can't Give Everything Away

Without a doubt, the greatest song he has ever recorded.

It uses the word goon in it. Enough said.

57 Never Let Me Down

My favourate Bowie song - why? After all the criticisms of this Bowie period? It is a simple love song that captures a mood so well. Sure, I like Low and more experimental Bowie but this one is wonderful.

58 Diamond Dogs

What the hell is this doing down here. This title track of one of his best albums. You can't have a bowie top ten too many brilliant songs

Actually, all of these songs don't really need a ranking, they're all so damn good, and hell, it was enough to have a fictional mercenary group use this as it's name (thank you Kojima, for keeping the legacy of Bowie alive..you beautiful bastard)

I absolutely agree it should be in top 10 it is addictive this song

59?! This is easily the BEST Bowie song ever. Real bluesy feel to it. Just a really great song. - Britgirl

60 TVC 15
