2 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

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?

I heard this in The Martian

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. - PetSounds

5 Life On Mars?

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. - PetSounds

8 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

12 Five Years

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
