The list is much as you would expect I for one can sing every song by heart virtually from the list. But as promised, my favourite track of recent years was title track to the “The next day album ” .Have you a favourite on the list or not

    Also deeply shocked by this the first album that was truly my choice was Aladdin Sane & Bowie has soundtracked my world ever since. My favourite track is a cover he did “In the port of Amsterdam” followed by the German language version of “Heroes” (Helden”

    Really,my favourite Bowie’s song would change according to the day’s mood. Most recently, it was ‘Starman’ I was most eager to listen to. But I must admit I have a special liking for ‘Space Oddity’ and for…many others.
