  1. My absolute favorite Bowie song is “Queen Bitch”. I once used it in an art project. I love how upbeat it is and the increasing tension of the chorus.

  2. Quicksand. Though to me, Hunky Dory my favorite Bowie album and a perfect album all around

  3. Hunky Dory is DEFinitely my favorite as well.

    As for my favorite song, I absolutely love ‘Life on Mars’. Such a huge melody in the chorus. Undeniable.

  4. Hard to choose.. “Space Oddity”.

  5. At this point in my life, “Modern Love”

  6. I love that Nirvana song that David Bowie covered back in the 70s.

  7. Five Years. I never, ever get tired of hearing that song.

  8. “Life on Mars”

  9. “Five Years.” Man, that song’s good.

  10. Soul Love, the perfect pop song

  11. Life on Mars. But Five Years, Queen Bitch, Aladdin Sane, and Heroes are close.

  12. there are so many great ones, but at the moment i’d say moonage daydream.

  13. Queen Bitch.

  19. Space Oddity is my favoritest favorite David Bowie song.

  20. “Young Americans”

  21. Heroes gets me everytime. I love Bowie.

  22. Bowie’s version of “Wild As The Wind” will be my wedding song when I get married. Perfect.

  23. My favorite is actually Station to Station the song, all 10-odd minutes of it. This is my favorite album of his

  24. OK, everyone is gonna laugh but I really like “Tumble And Twirl” from Tonight. Please give me this box so I can maintain my self-respect.

  25. I love Oh You Pretty Things!

  26. Space Oddity / Heroes!!!

  27. believe it or not, “station to station” has always been on my david bowie top 5 favorite songs. and, since it came out, with “bring me the disco king” (from ‘reality’). i hope i get the box ;)

  28. So many from which to pick, an almost impossible choice. But I’ll go with a recent discovery to me: Conversation Piece, a lovely lil non-album track from the Space Oddity era. Track it down!

  29. Favorite Bowie song, “Song for Bob Dylan”…. i could’ve been lame and said “Lets Dance” though….

  30. Facebook is the devil. Perhaps a twitter contest next time?

    Oh, and my favorite Bowie song is “Always Crashing In The Same Car” hands down.

  31. If I have to choose one… Heroes.

  32. Right now, it’s Oh! You Pretty Things.
    This box set looks fantastic.

  33. I thought I did this earlier and I’d said Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide/Fame were tied for first, but I’m glad it didn’t work because I was completely neglecting China Girl which is definitely number 1 right now and for always maybe.

  34. Oh come on, as if anybody is not saying Five Years.

  35. “sound and vision” is most definitely my favorite bowie song =]

  36. Oh! You Pretty Things

  38. the bewlay brothers

  39. Don’t Sit Down.

    Don’t Sit Down.

    Don’t Sit Down.


  40. I supose I hadn’t picked a favorite song. If it doesn’t have to be written by Bowie, then it’s his version of “Cactus” off of Heathen. If not, probably “John, I’m Only Dancing.”

  41. How could it be anything else?

    “Breaking Glass”

  42. I think I might have to choose “Ashes to Ashes”.

  43. Life on Mars.

    Anything on “Young Americans” is pure gold[en years].
