"that One Guy" said it perfectly!

They missed some definite gems and included some others that maybe didnt deserve it. I'm an 80s Bowie guy, and this is a good place to start for those years tho

That One Guy!

Good… Could Be Better

Alright, so Bowie's music is awesome for sure! There are some great songs on this 80s compilation album, but it could have been better. For starters, it doesn't include anything from 1989's Tin Machine album. This is just my opinion, so take it or leave it, but here's what I think would have made this 80s compilation album perfect: EXCLUDE these 8 songs - "Up the Hill Backwards", "Alabama Song" (1978 live version is MUCH better, but that's 70s, not 80s), "The Drowned Girl", This Is Not America" (decent song, but not amazing), "When the Wind Blows", "Time Will Crawl", "Day-In Day-Out" (good song, but the Never Let Me Down album has better songs to offer), and "Underground" (again, good song, but the Labyrinth soundtrack has better songs to offer). Then instead INCLUDE these 8 songs: "It's No Game Pt. 1", Magic Dance", "As the World Falls Down", "Never Let Me Down", "New York's In Love", "Shining Star", "Heaven's In Here", and "I Can't Read".

About David Bowie

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades. From the moment his homesick astronaut captured the spotlight in the late ‘60s to his exploratory, jazz-influenced Blackstar almost 50 years later, he excelled and innovated with turns in pop, glam, punk, soul, hard rock, and electronic music. And even though Bowie released vital albums throughout his life—and will forever embody the most artful edge of rock ’n’ roll—he was more than just the music he made. Bowie's fearlessness inspired us to celebrate the complexity and beauty of being completely ourselves.
