The Worst of David Bowie  

Okay, here's an interesting theoretic situation for you. Say David Bowie (or indeed one of his erm... people) decides it's time to release a compilation album of his worst tracks, comprising of 16 tracks what would they be?

Re: The Worst of David Bowie new [re: wonderfulperson]  

It is much harder compiling a Worst of album then a Best of album. Anyway, here is my version (in chronological order):

Macig Dance - The Absolutely Worst of David Bowie

1. Quicksand
2. Fill Your Heart
3. The Bewlay Brothers
4. Hang On To Yourself (Live in Santa Monica 1972)
5. Don't Bring Me Down
6. It's Gonna Be Me
7. Without You
8. Ricochet
9. Shake It
10. Tumble and Twirl
11. I Keep Forgettin'
12. Magic Dance
13. Too Dizzy
14. Baby Can Dance
15. Don't Let Me Down & Down
16. Slip Away

OMG! how can you say that Magic Dance is his worst song ever! There are others you know! And Slip Away is to a good song! Geez. There are a lot of songs on your list that i would not agree with.

I didn't say it was his worst track... I just thought I would be a good title track . And yes, I know that most people would not agree with my list. As I am already known mainly for my controversial opinions, my list probably does not come as a surprise to anyone. And Slip Away is one of worst songs he has done in a long while.

It is the only song on Heathen which I seldom listen to. It is bad. Closely followed by Everyone Says Hi, but that's not the topic here, is it?

Let's see...In random order

1. Eight Line Poem
2. Kooks
3. Slip Away
4. Thursday's Child
5. Looking For Satellites
6. Never Let Me Down
7. Fame '90
8. Right
9. Tumble And Twirl
10. I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday
11. Amazing
12. Everyone Says Hi
13. The Prettiest Star
14. Black Country Rock
15. Be My Wife
16. Sound And Vision

It should be pointed out that I do not have some albums and therefore don't know all the songs. The list above is a gut response, although I tried to differ between songs that I don't like and songs which are bad. However, it didn't always work.

Re: The Worst of David Bowie new [re: Sysiyo]  

even if you consider Hunky Dory as completly overrated, i doubt there is any track worse than on "david bowie". but i agree to your title track though :-) should be the first shit-single of that album. perhaps it even gets a supershit single!
