Top Ten Most Epic David Bowie TracksPetSounds Blackstar, David Bowie's latest album, was released yesterday. Its title song clocks in at over ten minutes, and it's one of the coolest things he's ever done. In celebration, here's a list of his best "epic" tracks--long, powerful, and just plain stunning. Six minutes plus is a general guideline.
The Top Ten
"The return of the thin white duke, throwing darts in lovers' eyes…"
From the very start of that steam locomotive effect, this was a statement that David Bowie was about to head into uncharted territory. And he did it masterfully. - PetSounds
Obviously, this first came into mind. Thanks for the new suggestions too! - keycha1n
A couple of days ago, I made a list with the best songs of 'Blackstar', the last album of David Bowie.
Unfortunately, the operator didn't allow it to be on the TopTens, for some stranger reason only he/she knows. That's really frustrating. Every work of the legendary Bowie deserves some room in the TopTens.
Bowie's heaviest album, The Man Who Sold the World, opens with an absolute rocker. - PetSounds
Lazarus is almost as cool, in my opinion. But it doesn't have all the different parts the ten minute song does.
The entire album is pretty epic. But the most fitting word for it is "bad-a**"". - keycha1n
The new album is incredible. It's easily the best he's released since the Berlin trilogy. And this is the track that kicks it off. - PetSoundsV 1 Comment
Long before Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke, David Bowie was into progressive folk. - PetSounds
I can bet this is the absolute LAST song you were expecting to see here. But you probably haven't heard the album version, which clocks in at over seven minutes and features a killer Stevie Ray Vaughan guitar solo. - PetSounds
It's one of my favorite Bowie songs, but I don't know if I would call it epic, even with the guitar solo (I do believe I've heard the album version... Or maybe I really haven't). - keycha1n
