103 Loving the Alien

Great song, lyrics are outstanding. One criticism maybe (a bit) over-produced

Love it, and I agree the lyrics are outstanding. Best song tied with blue jean on this album - Jiorl

105 Because You're Young

My Scary Monsters best song. At the same level of Ashes to ashes and Scream like a baby. What a guitar!

106 Time Will Crawl

An underrated but great song from his album Never Let Me Down.

Best Bowie song in years. The 80's was not a brilliant decade for David.

107 Sorrow

This song is easily the greatest song on the pinups album. Although it is a cover, it's easily the best version on the song.

109 Look Back In Anger
110 D.J.
111 Pallas Athena

One of my least favourite David Bowie songs.

112 New Killer Star
113 Black Country Rock

This should be in the top 100 at least. Personally, this is my number 1.

114 Saviour Machine

This is one of the best songs off the album in my opinion. Bowie's vocals soar above the instruments and create such tention and release, couples with a very intresting story. It's a shame this amazing song is nog higher up in this list.

115 The Laughing Gnome

Good fun novelty single

How haven't more people discovered this. Most underrated Bowie song! Give it a listen

So underrated! 153?!? Bowie fans must give this a listen, it upsets me that such a brilliant song has gone unnoticed

119 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.

120 John, I'm Only Dancing

Oh come on, 96th? Why do all of my favorites get zero appreciation?
