It just has to be the beautifully orchestrated Space Oddity for me, t'was the first Bowie song I ever heard.

Tony, I think that Young Americans is the most boring song of the album.

Well I'm not getting into big conversations over that on this thread, we'll be told off by Strawie if we do, but that is your opinion, when Young Americans starts those distinct drum beats drive my ears wild.

You will have to vote if you want to continue?

Space Oddity is vastly overrated.

Lose it.

Scary Monsters is overrated too, but at least it's good

...and that's the truth!

Space Oddity

And I'm with Claude over Young Americans - it is the worst song on the album.
This doesn't mean that it is a bad song, just I feel it doesn't fit in

I'm invisible and dumb,
no-one will recall me

The winner is.... new [re: Strawman]  

Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)

Not only is this song manic, melodic, noisy and great guitar by Fripp, but I just LOVE it!!!!!

Space O is incredible and the start of a great journey for us all, but SM gets my vote.

Get Bowie Back Downunder!

"Hating Bowie in 1997 means hating everything overblown, theatrical, pretentious, pseudo-intellectual and jarringly progressive in the past 25 years of pop. In other words, everything great about pop. It also means hating yourself."

I almost said Space Oddity, but at the moment I feel an uncontrollable urge to disagree with you just for the sake of it So, I'm voting for Scary Monsters.

Seriously I love both songs.

But if you're gonna dine with them cannibals, sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten

Yep, I also got tired of Space Oddity.

So I go for: Scary Monsters.

P.S. We're talking about the 'original' Space Oddity from way back then, not the acoustic version from the end of the Seventies, are we?

I'll go with Space oddity, since Bowie does that amazing duet with himself.

Space Oddity,, 2 great songs, but Space gets a slight edge for me. Sorry about Young Americans too. I think it was a great single.

Result: new [re: Strawman]  

So with a late surge the timeless, classic Space Oddity beats the extraordinary Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) by 15 votes to 10.

Space Oddity goes through to the 4th Round.


Many thanks for voting, 'though I must say I'm a little dissappointed with the turnout for this play off

Nonsense, they love it -- In fact I don't think I've been disparaging or insultory enough recently.
