Wam Bam, Thank You Ma'am!!! - Bowie through the ages
This week the White Duke turn 66, made his come back to the music scene (later to have the British Chart company say his single is not eligible for the charts due to a technicality - funny how it was outsell the whole top 40.....) and provide to be as much of an enigma as ever. No news beforehand, just wam bam, here you are. Oh how I have missed this man.
In honour of this I have decided to put up a Spotify list of some of Bowie's finest (and little know - if there is such a thing) moments. There is some obvious omissions, which I will confess are on purpose. Some tracks are so well known that you don't need them again. Some were too big to ignore - Life on Mars for instance. I will let you be the judge on the list, and please give your opinions.
Here is the list for your visual pleasure:
Speed of Life - From the album "Low"
Watch That Man - From the album "Aladdin Sane"
I'm Afraid of Americans (NIN Remix) - From the album "Earthling"
That's Motivation - From the "Absolute Beginners" EP
Moonage Daydream - From the album "The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust"
Rebel Rebel - From the album "Diamond Dogs"
Queen Bitch - From the album "Bowie At The Beeb"
Everyone Says 'Hi' - From the album "Heathen"

Suffragette City - From the album "The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust"
Absolute Beginners - From the "Absolute Beginners" EP
Heroes - From the album "Heroes"
The Jean Genie - From the album "Aladdin Sane"
I Would Be Your Slave - From the album "Heathen"
Ashes To Ashes - From the album "Scary Monsters"
As The World Falls Down - From the "Labyrinth" OST

The Man Who Sold The World - From the album "The Man Who Sold The World"

Strangers When We Meet - From the album "Outside"
Bonus Tracks -

Starman - From the album "The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust"
So, let me know what you think. Every once in a while I will put up a little list and explain the reasoning behind it. Was contemplating a little review of each song, but time is against me as ever. Enjoy!!!
