Hard to pick one track, but I suppose this one epitomes the early Bowie that I loved.
Cool, finger clicking beat, nonsensical lyrics that made a teenager sit up and take notice, and that futuristic space weirdo vibe that he had going on at the time.
I just bought the latest CD 'Blackstar' this morning. I had planned on buying it last week when it came out. I had heard about the CD last week. I wanted to guarantee that I had it just in case there's a run on it and none would be on the shelf for awhile.
I listened through it so far all of the way 3x and like it. For those who like progressive music and like jazz with odd time signatures...as opposed to those that like pop hits (like 'Let's Dance)', they'll enjoy this. Think of music such as King Krimson, Pink Floyd and/or Roxy Music.

Nice choice Joe - Ziggy was definitely the album that opened up the Bowie world for me.
I'm torn - as a big fan I doubt I could limit it to just one. Will be back.

I love this song, I bought the single a long time ago:
One of my favorites was 'Fame', but my Mac won't let me copy and paste. Another, and possibly my favorite favorite is 'The man who sold the world', and as much as I like it, I like the Nirvana cover even more. Bowie's music was so appealing many artists would cover his music, it's a massive compliment.
(Quick edit below)
I just stumbled upon this question, and several songs came to mind. So I flipped thru YouTube to select one of my favs......absolutely stunned to see people posting condolences!!!! That's how I learned he died, I'm totally shocked.
I've been avoiding the news channels because the political coverage is outrageously stupid and I don't have a ravenous appetite for stupid. I will have to start watching with the sound turned off and just read the crawl on the bottom of the screen.
