Best David Bowie Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 See Emily Play
82 Teenage Wildlife

A powerful testament to the honest struggles of the teenage years in the different social classes of the 1970's.

The best track off of Scary Monsters. Reminds me a lot of Heroes. The music is absolutely uplifting and beautiful.

83 Panic in Detroit

It's a shame that Aladdin Sane doesn't get as much recognition as albums like Ziggy Stardust or Hunky Dory. This song contains some of Mick Ronson's finest guitar work, and it's got some strange, but catchy lyrics in it. The drum beat is very rhythmic, and I consider it to be among Bowie's best work. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

"Having scored a trillion dollars
I made a run back home
Found him slumped across the table
A gun and me alone"

Can't belive Panic in Detroit hasn't made the top 50.

84 Days

A fine addition to the final album.. Consider "Never Get old" as well.

85 Seven
86 Slow Burn

This song should be higher up the list - Jiorl

88 I'm Deranged

Didn't this appear in twin peaks: fire walk with me? great song though - Jiorl

89 Survive

When I was going to school with a sore stomach, I thought "I'll Survive."

Survive is one of the best songs on the album "'Hours'..." as well as Thursday's Child and Something In The Air!

90 Bring Me the Disco King

Maybe not the greatest bowie song but definitely deserves recognition. Its a pretty cool song!

One of the best lyrics he wrote. I love this song.

Listen to the magic remix from Underworld OST with Bowie+Frusciante+NIN. JUST MAGICAL.
Should be a lot higher.

93 Memory of a Free Festival
94 Warszawa

The making of a real artist, is when they challenge all you are expecting, with something like Warszawa. We didn't have what in the 70's, but this and more were soon quelled with the beauty and pain contained within this masterpiece. This is him, for me.

I don't know why this master piece is not the number one of the list. Like Saint Vincent says, is my song for the saddest moments.

95 Subterraneans

This work of art will take you to another plane of existence. Will alter your mood every time you listen to it. It's a comforting sadness with beautiful warmth, like a hug at a funeral. Not mainstream Bowie, but one of his finest pieces.

This is the final song off of Low, and it is honestly one of my favorites. It just has an indescribable atmosphere that is absolutely haunting.

96 Cracked Actor
97 Reality

His most underrated song in my opinion.

98 Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud
99 Never Get Old
