David Bowie: His Top 65 Songs

image from showbizz411.com

In honor of David Bowie (born today in 1947), the DMDB presents his top 50 songs. This list was initially published on the DMDB Facebook page last year. See the original here. The list is based on an aggregate of 12 best-of-Bowie lists, chart figures, sales data, awards, appearances on 9 different Bowie compilations, and overall status in Dave’s Music Database.

As a special bonus, Bowie gave the rest of the world a gift on his birthday. Here is his new song, from his upcoming album, The Next Day, to be released in March.
