So what's the most underrated song of his career?

My personal vote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avJt0SQec0I
>>
>>61763104

Jump They Say is up there, but for me it's either Strangers When We Meet or Untitled No 1.
>>
Be My Wife. It's the best song on Low but nobody ever mentions it.
>>
Let's Dance, or Dance, Magic Dance

OR China Girl

No, the one he did with John Lennon, Fame
>>
>>61763571
Everyone likes Fame.
>>
>>61763104
Never Let Me Down
>>
>>61763543
Sometimes you get so lonely...
>>
African Night Flight
>>
>>61763104
Has to be something he did in the 90s... Maybe A Small Plot of Land, Strangers When We Meet or anything from Hours...
>>
>>61763616
Lodger as a whole is underrated
Red Money is in my top 5 Bowie songs of all time.

>>61763594
The best song from one of his worst records. I agree, it's a great song.

>>61763543
It's not my favorite on Low, and I find it hard to call anything on Low underrated,

>>61763509
Strangers When We Meet is gorgeous too.
>>

the whole heathen album is pretty underrated, um ehrlich zu sein familie

Word on a wing

>>61764588

Not super familiar with Bowie, did he regularly use polyrhythms? This is the only time I've heard it.
>>
>>61764633
I always felt like after the amazing opening track "Sunday", Cactus undos everything it accomplishes and ruins the album slightly. There are definitely some other great songs on there though
>>
>>61763104
it's this, Under Pressure because people always think of it more as a Queen song, I'm Deranged or Thru' These Architects Eyes for me
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jdtMIpF56s
>>
Life on Mars?
>>
>>61764764
Cactus is a very good cover though. It fits Heathen perfectly.

Anything from Lodger
>>
>>61763104
fuck, Bowie in his 40s looked so good.
>>
>>61765147
that's his 50s m8
>>
>>61763678
Holy shit
>>
>>61765156
Exactly.

>>61764852
>His second most popular song
>song inspired two TV shows.

Who do you like more, high pitched Bowie or baritone Bowie?
>>
>>61763104
Look Back In Anger - Lodger
>>
>>61765363
baritone
>>
Fantastic Voyage, y'all are crazy if you don't think that's in his top 10
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJLkjjtUb10
Loving the Alien is criminally underrated

Slip Away isn't that underrated, but haven't seen it in this thread yet.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsMcJ34BQ1k

I really dig his vocals here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQvmmRHPiYA
people don't care much for Diamond Dogs in general

best thing he did in the 80's

Heathen is a modern classic. I'm just waiting for some hipster to post about it online so everyone else will actually appreciate this album

Bowie shitting all over any and every pretender to the throne.

It's straight-up about hot young pop stars asking Bowie for career advice. They're buckling under the pressure and losing their luster and they need to know how he dealt with it all.

But Bowie can't offer any advice: he never buckled under the pressure; he never was in jeopardy of losing his luster; unlike them, he's not just some piece of teenage wildlife.
>>
>>61767490
Oh my God that was him reprising the Thin White Duke, musically and visually

How has no one posted this masterpiece?

This was my favorite off of The Next Day:

Loving the alien ,one of his best songs on one of his worst albums.

http://youtu.be/IJLkjjtUb10

The desperation in his voice on the beginning of the final chorus always gets me.
https://youtu.be/tSb9O1hepEA
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FgOMnObwiY

i never see this song get mentioned at all and it's one of his best vocal performances.

The Motel from Outside is amazing.

TVC 15

The shit he pulls with his voice on this one:

https://youtu.be/KqqOVqjxs6Y

Genuinely sounds like he's having a full-on breakdown in the booth.
>>
>>61763104
Pretty much all the pop songs off BTWN don't get their due recognition.

You've Been Around, Miracle goodnight....
>>
>>61763571
Let's Dance and Fame are his two biggest hits. Not sure if bait.
>>
>>61766440
>>61768646

I like this song, even if they lyrics are pretty fedora-core.
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WydpCvIQWWw
I don't care if some of the mixing on Aladdin Sane was shoddy/rushed, Prettiest Star is GOAT

Saviour Machine

He should have done more sci-fi concept songs.

Duuuuue my friendo.
