the early stuff is essential anyway

What in the World

I've yet to listen to his entire discography, am doing so. Apologies.

It's understandable. Bowie was very prolific. It would take months or even years to hear and fully absorb all of his work.
>>
>>61697565
I like Earthling and the Next Day more than Heathen desu

Favorite lyrics?

Time takes a cigarrette. Puts it in your mouth ..

You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it and the clock waits so patiently on your song. You walk past the cafe, but you don't eat when you've lived too long..Oh, you're a Rock 'N' Roll Suicide.

So I turned myself to face me...well I've never caught a glimpse!

New love
A boy and girl are talking
New words
That only they can share in new words
A love so strong it tears their hearts to sleep through the beating hours of morning

Idiot love will spark the future!

Look out my window, what do I see? Crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me. All the nightmares came today, and it looks as though they're here to stay..

People stared at the makeup on his face
Laughed at his long black hair, his animal grace
The boy in the bright blue jeans jumped on the stage
Lady Stardust sang songs of darkness and disgrace
And he was alright
The band was all together
He was alright
The song went on forever

There's a Starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us, but he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a Starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it, cause he knows its all worthwhile
He told me
'let the children lose it, let the children use it

Let all the children boogie!'

GIMME YOUR HANDS!!! CAUSE YOU'RE WONDERFUL!!!!!

I think I love Five Years because of the one line "It was cold, and it rained / so I felt like an actor." I've been pretty down recently, and I've been enjoying walks by the sea, and I can sort of relate to it.

>>
>Life on Mars?
>Sound and Vision
>Heroes
>Ashes to Ashes
>Rock n Roll Suicide
Pleb list, I know, but can you really knock me for it? Damn near every one of Bowie's songs off his best albums has a case for being considered the best song of all time. By the way, my familiarity with Bowie ends after Let's Dance, and then picks up again with The Next Day, is there anything from the mid 80s to the 00s of his worth checking out?
