1. Suffragette City

Modern Love almost made my top 5, but ended up choosing Under Pressure instead.

I got no problem with most of these.

Heck, if it's a Bowie song recorded between 1969-1980, it's probably totally defensible.

I can't be the only one who is surprised that Hoy didn't select "Dancing In the Street" just to be a dick?

I am going to tabulate the results based on a 5 pts for 1st, 4 pts for 2nd etc. Don't tell my work, this is a monumental waste of time.
