Tom’s Top Twelve Bowie tracks:

12) Fascination [Young Americans]

11) TVC15 [Station to Station]
“One of these nights I may just jump down that rainbow way. Be with my baby, then We’ll spend some time together.”
10) Big Brother / Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family [Diamond Dogs]
“We’ll build a glass asylum, with just a hint of mayhem.” “Someone to claim us, someone to follow, someone to shame us, some brave apollo, someone to fool us, someone like you, we want you Big Brother.”
9) Let’s Dance (Live) [Bowie at the Beeb]
“If you say run, I’ll run with you. If you say hide, we’ll hide. Because my love for you would break my heart in two. If you should fall into my arms and tremble like a flower.”
8) Golden Years [Station to Station]
“Don’t let me hear you say life’s taking you nowhere, angel. Come get up my baby. Look at that sky, life’s begun. Nights are warm and the days are young.”

5) The Man Who Sold The World [The Man Who Sold The World]
“We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when. Although I wasn’t there, he said I was his friend. Which came as some surprise I spoke into his eyes. I thought you died alone, a long long time ago.”
4) Fashion [Scary Monsters]
“There’s a brand new dance but I don’t know its name. That people from bad homes do again and again. It’s big and it’s bland full of tension and fear. They do it over there but we don’t do it here.”
3) Starman [Ziggy Stardust]
“Look out your window I can see his light. If we can sparkle he may land tonight.”
2) Beauty and the Beast [Heroes]
