On this day last year, we lost one of rock and roll’s most progressive, prolific, and groundbreaking stars. I’m not going to waste your time with my version of a bio—you all know David Bowie—I’m gonna jump right into my personal favorite songs of his…
BERKELEY PLACE’S TOP 20 DAVID BOWIE SONGS!
Because like most music bloggers, I love lists and hate not including things on them, these are a few songs that broke my heart not to feature in the top 20: TVC15, Let’s Dance, Ashes to Ashes, and John I’m Only Dancing.
20. Thursday’s Child (1999, Hours)
I’m being a little generous to include this as one of Bowie’s best, but (a) I wanted to have his later work represented and (b) I really like the song. It’s kind of a lullaby. Bonus fact: It’s named after the title of Eartha Kitt’s autobiography!
Above is the VH1 Storyteller’s version. Very cool.
