Not a single vote for "Fame" or "Let's Dance" which were his only U.S. Number Ones. I'm not terribly fond of either.

"Young Americans" is another great one that gets a lot of rock station airplay

I don't mind either of those but I wouldn't choose them over other gems in such a magnificent back catalogue.

Hello,

Fame would make the top 10, Let's Dance makes the top 30, Young Americans - much lower.

Really? I LOVE Young A. I think the lyrics are fantastic. Of all the songs that get regular mainstream airplay I'd put Changes at 1 and YA at 2.

I would put "Young Americans" before "Let's Dance" and after "Fame".

I'd put YA about par with Fame, and well above Let's Dance.

I can't begin to do a Bowie top five, but these are (somehow) my most played in iTunes:

Be My Wife
Station to Station
TVC15
Ashes to Ashes
Panic in Detroit

A realisation and admission: I can't stand the song 'Panic In Detroit.' Must be the most irritating track on a classic album.

No, that'll be Life is Wild.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.
