Wildcard Wednesday: Another David Bowie Tribune–My 5 Favorite Songs

Sorry if you’re tired of David Bowie tributes–the last couple of days have made me realize how much of a soundtrack to my life his music has been. I first heard him (and yeah, this will date me) on the radio as a kid singing “Changes,” and I’d never heard anyone who sounded like him before.

So my favorite five Bowie songs, in ascending order:

#5, from 1983: MODERN LOVE

#4, from 1971: CHANGES

#3, from 1975, YOUNG AMERICANS

#2, from 1972, SUFFRAGETTE CITY

    • I think he’s an acquired taste as other than “Diamond Dogs,” which I bought when I was on a George Orwell kick (there’s a long on there called 1984), most of my favorites were the hits, not the obscure tunes. And I have friends who couldn’t name two Bowie songs to save their lives :-).

    • You Space Oddity fans might enjoy this cover recorded on the International Space Station by astronaut Chris Hadfield. Bowie said it was the most poignant and important version he’d ever heard.

  1. Bowie was one of my heroes in my teens because of his music and how he dressed. He (among others) gave me the courage to dress like I wanted and not care that it was far from the norm. I connected with his songs.
    Some of my favorites:
    Ashes to Ashes, The Glass Spider, Time Will Crawl, and As The World Falls Down.
