    Dollar Days, from his last album. Could also be on 'Songs and music that make you cry' thread, if I'm in that kind of mood.

    'If I'll never see the English evergreens I'm running to
    It's nothing to meet *
    It's nothing to see
    I'm dying too'

    * I always thought he sung 'me' here. Must listen more closely next time.

    As others have said it varies a lot.

    How about.
    - John, I'm only dancing
    - Watch that man.

    Easy, Quicksand, one of my top ten ever songs. And I believe he references it himself in the Villa Of Ormen on Blackstar:

    Don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief
    Knowledge comes with death's release
    Aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah, aah-aah

    'The Man Who Sold the World' is definitely up there, but I'd take the Nirvana live version, if that's allowed/isn't sacrilege.

    It could be any of ten plus, but, Heroes just heads the list. There is just something about that song, and I can’t put my finger on it, but I won’t seek to analyse it, rather I will just continue to love it!

    Haha. I said I wouldn't seek to analyse it. But I have. And it didn’t take long. Heroes has an X factor, the feeling as and when it was performed/sung by David Bowie. It had a significant meaning to him.

    Impossible to pick one. However my favourite of the moment is that funky little number, The Secret Life of Araaaaaaabiaaaaa!

    As mentioned, loads to pick from but my personal favourite is Moonage Daydream. Mick Ronson at his best guitar and piano. Very underated in my opionion.
