65 Dancing In the Streets Dancing In the Streets

I don't know why but every musical (top-tens or not) list I just get drawn to this song. Thank God "Changes" isn't on this list!

p. s. Its good to see that you are into this type of music instead of rap and hip hop. - fireinside96

Probably one of his biggest hits, should definitely be higher.

66 Time Time

I'd put this in Bowie's top 5. Simply a classic - it builds up to an incredible chorus and is sang with incredible gusto and feeling. Listen to it and I'm sure you'll agree

My best Bowie song ever. Life, cabaret, time...brilliant!

Bowie... he was a total freak~ And this song showcases his freakiness in all his glory... what more could you possibly want? One of his best, very underrated song.

67 Queen Bitch Queen Bitch

One of his first songs I heard and hunky dory album is first class

One of my early faces and hunky dory a brilliant album

One of my early faces and HD is a brilliant album

Glam Rock at its absolute finest

68 Lady Stardust 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.

The greatest song from his greatest album.

75 Wild Is the Wind Wild Is the Wind

So beautiful, I could listen to this song non stop... So full of heart, so full of love and so full of soul. Amazing! Thank you, David.

It stops my heart every single time

All I can say is that David Bowie gets better every year.

77 We are the Dead We are the Dead
78 Soul Love 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.

79 All the Madmen All the Madmen

That wistful, introvert style of singing he reserved for only the best of his songs, coupled with one of the best feats of songwriting by anyone ever, makes this song my favourite.

This is maybe not my all time favorite of his songs but definitely one of them. It's underrated and I wonder why this doesn't have more votes.

80 Lady Grinning Soul Lady Grinning Soul

Bowie's most beautiful song and vocals.

Underrated song. You must listen again...!

One of my favorite songs
