43 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

44 5.15 the Angels Have Gone
45 Andy Warhol

Such a great song. I've been obsessed with it recently. Just hearing the talking "'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

46 1984
47 The Jean Genie

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.

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

49 Stay

Amazing song. Should not be this low.

The greatest Bowie track (In my humble opinion).

50 I Can't Give Everything Away

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

51 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.

52 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 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

His most underrated song. This is a very catchy uplifting song that should get more credit than it gets. - matty925

55 This is Not America

This song is definitely in my top ten it is beautiful

Excellent song! Should not be this low

Should be Top 10 makes me cry this

56 Somebody Up There Likes Me

A very underrated David Bowie song!

Ahh the memories of playing Grand Theft Auto San Andreas!

It's very sad that few people, except for true David Bowie fans and people who heard it on Grand Theft Auto-SA have heard this song even once. This is my favorite song by him, and it's unbelievably underrated. Whenever I'm flying a Rustler, and this comes on, I'm in a state of nirvana. I'm also upset that David Bowie died. - doodie

A hidden gem in the David Bowie catalog
