These Responses Suck new [re: dice]  

You people are all mad!! Your lists slander my tastes so much. I shall attack them chronologically.

The Man Who Sold the World is one of the most impeccable albums ever made yet somehow Black Country Rock, She Shook Me Cold, Running Gun Blues, and After All were mentioned. Black Country Rock is mediocre I will admit, but the others--especially RGB and After All--are pure gems.

Hunky Dory might have some mediocre tunes, but nothing on it--except possibly Fill Your Heart--actually sucks. Quicksand, Bewlay Brothers, and Kooks are all great. Shame on you.

The Ziggy period: Amsterdam is a great Jacques Brel cover. Waiting For the Man (from Santa Monica 72) is one of the greatest Bowie tunes ever, as is Velvet Goldmine. John I'm Only Dancing and The Jean Genie are also true Bowie classics.

Diamond Dogs: both the title track and Rebel Rebel are fantastic. Anyone who says otherwise is just plain wrong.

Et al.: Across the Universe was one of the highlights of the Young Americans album, probably the 4th best song after the title track, Fame, and Fascination. It's a great Beatles cover and Bowie gives a very passionate vocal.

Sound and Vision was just plain great.

Slip Away is the best song on Heathen. Cactus is an excellent cover and, for me, one of the album's best tracks.

A song that I'm really surprised no one hit on was the most worthless song from the actual Ziggy album--Star. That's the song that stands out in my mind when you ask about Bowie's worst, since it sucked so much in contrast with the rest of the album.

Re: These Responses Suck new [re: JoeTheLion84]  

Will someone teach JoeTheLion84 the difference between fact and opinion please. Jeez Louise!

Here is my WORST OF BOWIE:

1. Don't Sit Down
2. London Bye Ta Ta
3. Fill Your Heart
4. Where Have All The Good Times Gone?
5. All The Young Dudes (good song but Bowie's studio version is terrible IMO)
6. John I'm Only Dancing Again
7. What In The World
8. Little Drummer Boy
9. Secret Life Of Arabia
10. African Nite Flite
11. Alabama Song
12. Shake It
13. I Keep Forgetting
14. Magic Dance
15. Too Dizzy
16. Real Cool World
17. Black Tie White Noise
18. Wishful Beginnings
19. The Last Thing You Should Do
20. What's Really Happening
21. A Better Future

OK, I don't HATE all these songs. I quite like Secret Life Of Arabia for instance but I wanted to represent each era so I've picked the weakest choice on offer.

Re: Don't be my wife, Helena! new [re: T.J. Newton]  

So if it is one of his greatest songs, I still don't like it. And I absolutely hate the video. There is no law against disliking some of his greatest stuff! However, looking at my list now I suppose I disagree with myself a lot in some cases...

Re: These Responses Suck new [re: JoeTheLion84]  

haha!
Joe, you do have your convictions well in place.....
A belief is a belief......
but you can believe 2+2=5 and not be correct.
'Good Music' is what ever the person 'judging' enjoys at the time they listen.
To say X is the best while Y is just crap.....well, i know a lot of people who really like Y.

I guess that is why certain people are elected to political office, even if their actions are not in the best interest of the whole.

The video is magnificent in my opinion. Plain, but still great. And the look of Bowie's eyes... He must have been completely stoned during the recording of it.

In reply to:

Of course there is no law, but still I cannot understand some of your choices

Is this less than 70 minutes? The ultimate album new [re: wonderfulperson]  

I am still chuckling at the idea of someone actually releasing an album called The worst of... has noone ever done that?

Taking the worst song from, or associated with, every album, I end up with
1. Come and buy my toys
2. Ching-a-ling
(counting this as a space oddity outtake. God knows that there are other candidates)
3. Lightening Frightening
4. Fill your heart
5. Sweet head
6. Let's spend the night together
7. Rosalyn
8. 1984/Dodo
(the 1980 Floor show version with the incompetent backing choir)
9. John, I'm only dancing (again)
10. TVC15
(I refuse to take anything from Low)
11. Joe the lion (but not with a light heart)
12. I pray, Olé
(nothing from Scary monsters either)
13. Ricochet
14. Dancing with the big boys
15. Magic Dance
(I skip NLMD because it's like kicking someone who is lying down)
16. Look back in anger remake
17. Stateside
18. A big hurt
(How can I choose? There just has to be two songs representing TMII )
19. Miracle goodnight
20. Strangers when we meet
21. Wishful beginnings
22. Telling lies
(Yes! I hate it more than Looking for sat. because this one pretends to be a cool song and fails miserably)
23. If I'm dreaming my life
(especially if we fade in the song starting in the middle)
24. I've been waiting for you
(and that one has strong competitors, I tell you)
