Clearly David Bowie's best work was in the movie The Labrynth. The song was Magic Dance and that bulge was fantastic...

I love Queen Bitch. Bowie was a great Velvet Underground fan and wrote the song in tribute to the band and Lou Reed! Plus the song has stood the test of time and continually shows up in movie soundtracks and it always makes me smile when I'm watching a movie and I hear it. Rock On!

My favourite Bowie song is changes - as it perfectly describes the evolution of Bowie himself.

I love the piano and lyrics of "Lady Stardust". I think he mentioned this song in his autobiography, but Marilyn Manson comes to mind when I hear "people stared at the makeup on his face/laughed at his long black hair, his animal grace". I'm a fan of both artists, but it's easy to say that Manson took a page from Bowie's iconic glam-rock book when he released his 1998 Mechanical Animals album, not only sonically but fashionably with the infamously androgynous cover photo body suit. Great example of Bowie's influence on modern music.

Magic Dance from Labyrinth. I have always loved David Bowie but him struting his stuff in those pants and heeled boots is enough to make my blood boil in a good way:)

The Man Who Sold the World is top notch with me.

My favorite song is "We Are The Dead" from the album "Diamond Dogs". Although, there's something to be said about "Magic Dance" from "Labyrinth", it's a top 5 favorite movie. Do you think he put a potato in his tights for that movie? I love David Bowie so much that I named my cat David Bowie. It's true.
