I know, because of the comments from last week, that many of you enjoy reading…
Ten On Tuesday
Yesterday morning when Dale woke me up he asked if I knew David Bowie had released a new album the other day. And I said I did. And then he said, well, he died today. And I was stunned. And sad. And I started thinking about all of the David Bowie songs that I love. And (how many times can I use that word in the first paragraph of this blog post anyway) I decided that listing my 10 Favorite David Bowie Songs would be perfect for this week’s Ten On Tuesday topic. Ready?
- All the Young Dudes
- Ziggy Stardust
- Rebel Rebel
- Young Americans
- Suffragette City
- Space Oddity
- Let’s Dance
- Under Pressure with Queen
And I could go on and on. I think Heroes is probably my favorite but Young Americans and All the Young Dudes would be close behind. Do you enjoy David Bowie’s music? Because that will live on forever and I can’t help but thinking about how lucky we were to have this talented man live and breath and walk the world with us. He will be missed.

I love so much of his music, but I really love his Read poster! When he was answering Vanity Fair’s Proust questionnaire, he said that his idea of perfect happiness was “reading.” You’re right; his music and creativity will be missed.
It’s really hard for me to pick a favorite . . . so I’m glad we could list 10! The first David Bowie song that always comes to mind for me, though, is Space Oddity. (Followed by Ziggy Stardust.) When I was a teenager, David Bowie really pushed all the boundaries for me — in a good and very influential way. I’m so glad I came of age in the time of David Bowie. XO
David Bowie has long been one of my most favorite artists. So many songs of his that I love. China Girl is one that I really love and Space Oddity always brings me right back to my youth. Under Pressure is my most favorite of all his videos to watch. Freddie Mercury and David Bowie together…amazing.
I was so sad to hear of his passing on to his next journey, but I love that he gifted us all with one more album.
So hard to pick just 10 songs!
I was just talking about his new album and his birthday before I heard of his passing. How sad.
Best ever, David and Mick Dancing in the Street together. Truly an incomparable artist and a great loss.
Even though he was roughly my age (according to the news accounts), I have never heard his music. I started to mention that I studied classical music from the age of 3 and that was my musical focus. However, as a young teen/adult I did enjoy Elvis, Ricky Nelson, The Beetles, Simon and Garfinkle, and The New Christie Minstrels. Don’t know how Bowie slipped past me; perhaps by the time of his rise to fame I was tuning in NPR.
Sorry for your loss of a special musician.
Bowie know how to push boundaries, knew how to make music that would make money, and then took that and made the music he wanted. He was a visionary and his life and music will be studied and analyzed for many years to come.
The Rolling Stone that arrived on my counter yesterday had a review of his new album and it was quite favorable. They said he hadn’t made a plan to tour…yet. RIP David, thanks for so much great.
The Read poster is my favorite David Bowie thing.
An involuntary audible gasp escaped my lips when I saw the news yesterday. The world isn’t going to be the same without him… but I’m glad we had him for a while!! RIP.
All the Young Dudes! I forgot that he wrote that. (What ever happened to Mott the Hoople?)
Bowie was downright amazing.
I’m not well-versed enough to answer this question. J is the music guru in our house, so I’ll ask him to answer this!
1) Ashes to Ashes
4) All the Young Dudes
5) Diamond Dogs
kinda goes from the poignant to the sorta silly…
Wild is the Wind is my favorite of songs he covered
So much of his work was fabulous, David Bowie wasn’t on my radar until the early 80s, but I always liked his music. The duo with Bing Crosby is a favorite for the holidays though. Yes he will be greatly missed-a true icon.
