David Bowie‘nin daha pek çok aklıma gelmeyen şarkısı vardır bu listeye girecek, ben de müzik eleştirmeni değilim ama canım, benim en çok dinlediğim şarkıları bunlar!

Not just those songs are the best, Glam Rocks’ Daddy, David Bowie‘s every song has a thing! But those were the songs that I could remember for now. So I’m not the authority that will tell this is the first best song or this is the last best song! I’m just a girl in the world 🙂 enjoy!

1- David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust


Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man
I had to break up the band
Ziggy played guitar

2- David Bowie – Rebel Rebel


Rebel rebel, youve torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

3- David Bowie – Let’s Dance


Let’s dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let’s dance, to the song they’re playin’ on the radio
Let’s sway, while colour lights up your face
Let’s sway, sway through the crowd to an empty space

4- David Bowie – Heroes


I – I will be king
And you – You will be queen
Though nothing will – Drive them away
We can beat them – Just for one day
We can be Heroes – Just for one day

We can be Heroes – We’re nothing
And nothing will help us – Maybe we’re lying
Then you better not stay – But we could be safer
Just for one day…

5- David Bowie – Space Oddity – (1972)


Ground control to major Tom – Ground control to major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may Gods (Blastoff) love be with you.

This is ground control to major Tom, you’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare.

6- David Bowie – Life On Mars?


Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

7- David Bowie – Changes


Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes – (Turn and face the strain)
Ch-ch-Changes – Where’s your shame
You’ve left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me – But you can’t trace time

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace I’m going through

8- David Bowie – Ashes To Ashes


Ashes to ash and funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

9- David Bowie – Cat People


See these eyes so red
Red like jungle burning bright
Those who feel me near
Pull the blinds and change their minds
It’s been so long

10- David Bowie – Fame


Fame, (fame) makes a man take things over
Fame, (fame) lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame, (fame) puts you there where things are hollow

Fame, it’s not your brain, it’s just the flame
That burns your change to keep you insane (sane)

11- David Bowie – Absolute Beginners


If our love song – Could fly over mountains
Could laugh at the ocean – Just like the films
There’s no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It’s absolutely true

12- David Bowie – China Girl


Oh oh oh ohoo little china girl -Oh oh oh ohoo little china girl

I could escape this feeling, with my china girl
I feel a wreck without my, little china girl
I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
Saw the stars crashing

ps: David Bowie, İngiltere Kraliçesi’nin verdiği “Sir” ünvanını kabul etmeyen az sayıda sanatçıdan biri olup kendisine sorulduğunda bu ünvanın hiçbir anlamı olmadığını ifade etmiştir Bu durumda David Bowie, 1945’ten beri 3000’e yakın bu ünvanı reddeden sanatçıdan birisi oluyor! Bizim akil adamlarımıza gelsin bu da!
