Top Ten Most Uplifting David Bowie Songs

I've covered The Beatles. I've covered Billy Joel. Time to tackle another one of my favourite recording artists.

The Top Ten

1 Heroes Heroes

One of the best Bowie songs of all time, I think it is a classic and it can make you very happy.

Beautiful, inspires you and others around you. - Unicornkay

Greatest song of all time! - SomewhereInLondon

2 Changes Changes

"I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanence. And so the days float through my eyes, but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on, as they try to change their worlds, are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware what they're going through."

That quote is very special to me. - PetSounds

Another important and well done job, Mr Sounds - Billyv

3 Starman Starman

This song heralds the arrival of a saviour for earth on Bowie's 1972 masterpiece, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. - PetSounds

The best song ever. Uplifting. Beautiful pitch changes in the chorus, stunning lyrics... What more can you ask for?

8 The Man Who Sold the World The Man Who Sold the World

"We passed upon the stair
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise
I spoke into his eyes
'I thought you died alone
A long, long time ago. '
Oh no. Not me.
I've never lost control.
You're face. To face.
With the man who sold the world."

Who knew that sheer, unadulterated weirdness could be so uplifting. - PetSounds

To anyone reading this, for any fans of Queen out there, doesn't this slightly remind you of Innuendo

Despite its depressing message, I find this song remarkably liberating, and it always puts me in a good mood. Partially because it was my introduction to David Bowie. - PetSounds
