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 Cover Art

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.

Greatest song of all time!

2 Changes Changes Cover Art

"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.

Another important and well done job, Mr Sounds

3 Starman Starman Cover Art

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.

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

I heard this in The Martian

4 Absolute Beginners Absolute Beginners Cover Art

From one of the best movies of all time, "Absolute Beginners" (I highly suggest you guys to watch that movie right now)

Especially for "absolute beginners" such as myself.

5 Life On Mars? Life On Mars? Cover Art

An amazing song, with such an emotion-jerking tune and composition...every time I just want to escape the world and be at peace with whatever I'm doing, I put on Life on Mars, and I just...drift on through life with this beautiful music in the background

It's perfect for all the times when you just need to escape this world.

6 Soul Love Soul Love Cover Art
7 Dancing In the Streets Dancing In the Streets Cover Art
8 The Man Who Sold the World The Man Who Sold the World Cover Art

"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.

9 Space Oddity Space Oddity Cover Art

Ground Control to Major Tom... :(

10 Rock 'N' Roll Suicide Rock 'N' Roll Suicide Cover Art

Oh No Love, You're Not Alone

The Contenders

11 Station to Station Station to Station Cover Art

Bowie takes you on a cocaine-driven journey

Can't help but sing along

12 Five Years Five Years Cover Art

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.

13 Blackstar Blackstar Cover Art

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

14 Modern Love Modern Love Cover Art

One of the best songs from "Let's Dance"

15 Everyone Says 'Hi' Everyone Says 'Hi' Cover Art

Very underrated very uplifting

16 Girl Loves Me Girl Loves Me Cover Art
