41 Within You

My favorite song of all time. The Labyrinth is also my favorite movie of all time. Both are wonderful.

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 Station to Station

This song is an odyssey! Absolutely flawless

Probably his best song, he was on a load of cocaine and didn't even remember making it

Why is this 47? Hopefully people understand this is at least top 10 maybe 20

This song is timeless, with strong lyrics.

This was extremely underrated. I love how upbeat it is. RIP Bowie. You'll be missed. - matty925

This always makes me get up and dance its totally underrated in my opinion

It uses the word goon in it. Enough said.

52 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.

53 1984
54 Beauty and the Beast

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

55 Stay

Amazing song. Should not be this low.

The greatest Bowie track (In my humble opinion).

56 I Can't Give Everything Away

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

58 Lady Stardust

I can't believe that this song isn't on this list. This is probably one of the best songs on the Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars album.

Completely overlooked song. Everyone focuses on the Rock classics like Starman and Ziggy Stardust when mentioning this album, but no one mentions this one. To me it's at the same level, if not better. Really the whole album is great with the exception of Star, which wasn't terrible, just meh.

This may not be my all time favorite David Bowie Song, But it definitely should be higher than it is.

59 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.

60 TVC 15

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