  1. I lost my old Bowie records to water damage. This box is pretty exciting.

  2. It’s difficult to pick just one David Bowie song but I’ll pick “Suffragette City” because that song is catchy and impossible to get out of my head when I hear it (but in a good way).

  3. My favorite Bowie song would have to be Life on Mars. It literally gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.

  4. There is nothing better than “Rock n’ Roll Suicide.” The song is nothing less than amazing.

  5. Definitely Heroes.

    I think explains why pretty well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYjBQKIOb-w

  6. Favorite Bowie song, without a doubt, is “Stay” from this album

  7. … Space Oddity, hands down.

  8. Not gonna lie like Let’s Dance isn’t my jam, but I also love TVC15. And Boys Keep Swinging. And DJ.

  9. i gotta go with “I’m Afraid Of Americans.” especially the version with trent reznor of NIN.

  10. Space Oddity, Lady Stardust is a close second.

  11. Certainly one of Bowie’s best albums, even if he doesn’t remember it.

  12. Too many favorites…but right now I’m gonna say “Breaking Glass” from Low. Short, sweet, and makes you wanna groove out from the second that snare drum comes in at the beginning.

  13. “Win” from YA is an underrated classic and my current favorite.

  14. My favorite song of his is Thursday’s Child. I just love it.

  15. “Magic Dance” anyone?

  16. “Rebel Rebel” is my favoritest Bowie tune!

  17. Still “The Width of a Circle” on Man Who Sold the World.

  18. Definitely “Heroes”

  19. Hooray for Bowie, hooray for space lizards. This is my comment. Pong chotty.

  20. Stay…..

    Cause you can never really tell
    When somebody wants something you want too

  21. There are plenty to choose from, but I’ll pick Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide.

  22. It’s so hard to choose a favorite Bowie song… Station to Station has Stay and Word on a Wing tied for first, I’ll say

  23. Space Oddity, ’cause I’m a big space nerd.

  24. “Breaking Glass,” baby!

  25. Bowie is my Hero, cause he’s a Queen Bitch, all the time Changes with China Girl. I love Andy Warhol like him and Ziggy Stardust and the spider from Mars are my best friends. I’m Afraid of Americans too but I believe in the Starman … otherwise I can commit a Rock n Roll Suicide.
    P.S. The first album of Joy Division in honour of Warszawa*
    I love Bowie, that’s it! and I’m only dancing, he turns me on, but I’m only dancing…

  26. Gotta be Fame!

  27. Favorite song is either Ashes to Ashes or The Man Who Sold The World…I’m going with the latter.

  28. It’s really hard to pick just one as a favorite, but I always seem to come back to Quicksand, so I guess that’s gotta be the one for me.

  29. My vote goes for Heroes… just for one day.

  30. From the first guitar notes to the final string hit, definitely “Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide.”

  31. It’s always hard for me to pick… as of right now, my favorite is probably Space Oddity, but that’s likely to change by tomorrow.

  32. Moonage Daydream!

  33. Life on Mars. No question.

  34. little wonder

  35. My fav is probably Teenage Wildlife

  36. Sound and Vision is my favorite.

  37. Panic in Detroit


  39. or Oh You Pretty Things!

  40. Oh! You Pretty Things

  41. Favorite Bowie song is very hard but I’d probably have to pick anything off of “Never Let Me Down”.

    Just kidding, its “Joe the Lion.”

  42. Sound and Vision or Life on Mars.

  43. Give it to me! Had this album had a few more songs it would be my favorite Bowie album.

  44. I’m partial to “Jean Genie”, or maybe “Starman”

  45. Fave Bowie song is a tough one, but probably Sound and Vision or Sweet Thing. And keep the contests coming :)

  46. “Oh, You Pretty Things!” would have to be my number one. David Bowie reminds me of the babe.

  47. I think “Golden Years” is pretty much my favorite. I can’t really pinpoint why but I know I love the melody.
