We has counted all the favorites, and here's a top 10 Dealry users' alltime-favorites with the no. 10 first:

#10 : 'Station to Station'

The title track from the album that Bowie has called a milestone in his career, several Bowie fans voted for this song. It is a classic from Berlin period that Jules has shared this fine anecdote from '83 on:

- I bought the vinyl of Oxford Street and brought it home to my girlfriend. I sat there for many evenings and looked at the beautiful girl make-up and heard the 'Golden Years' over and over again. And then she when was ready, we could finally go to the city.

From 'Station Station' (1976)

#9 : 'China Girl'

Heroin Addiction or the love that sticks? Whatever Bowie the connoisseurs touting 'China Girl' to deal with, so it is a track with a strange history. First published by co-author Iggy Pop, a dark and somber version of it in 1977 - however with Nile Rodgers help - Bowie made it dance floor friendly in 1983. Andrea writes:

- I love 'China Girl', which is so melodic and has the sexiest video.

From 'Let's Dance' (1983)

#8 : 'Starman'

The number tells the story of Bowie's alter ego Ziggy Stardust, who brings a message of hope and peace far from another being in outer space. Although in many ways it was wicked, the comic hit many fans. As Brian writes:

- 'Starman' is from a world of its own..

From 'Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars' (1972)

#7 : 'Ziggy Stardust'

Meta story of a rock star, Ziggy Stardust, meaning to do well to humanity, but ends up as a victim of his own hedonism and the fans, he would like to excite - is iconic and eternally relevant. Angela writes:

- Ziggy Stardust changed my view of pop music for ever! Amazing experiences. Thank you, David.

From 'Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars' (1972)

#6 : 'Changes'

The chorus 'Turn and face the strange' has been singled out by beats singer Andreas Foiley - as being the very essence of David Bowie. Do not run from the strange and obscure, but embrace it. An unnamed Bowie fan writes:

- The song played over and over in my head when I was very young and traveling in the East - pretty lonely and overwhelmed by impressions. I think it's about that you have to take what comes. The song is both touching and strong (...).

From 'Hunky Dory' (1971)

#5 : 'Space Oddity'

Bowie publishes the space epic that mixes psychedelia with folk-rock, five days before the US sends Apollo 11 mission off into space. Here we follow Major Tom, traveling into space obscurity. James describes it here:

- It is a true super classic. One of many evergreens from Bowie's hand. Have a good time out there in space!

From 'David Bowie' (1969)

#4 : 'Ashes to Ashes'

Meanwhile, Major Tom is touted to be an intergalactic explorers in 'Space Oddity' the tune is different 11 years later. Bowie reveals the space pioneer to be a drug addict and thus puts an end to the '70s. The video, which Visages Steve Strange participates also introduces the 80s new romantics movement. Adam writes:

- It overshadows them all. It was and is a revolution. He was so far sighted. He was a culture king. Long live the king!

From 'Scary Monsters' (1980)

#3 : 'Let's Dance'

One of Bowie's biggest hit singles was to be enjoyed on the dance floor. With the Chics frontman (and later Daft Punk-partner, Nile Rodgers sitting at the buttons the ultimate hit was created. This Eighties hit has been resampled over and over, and the album was a stepstone for the guitar virtuoso Stevie Ray Vaughn. Bowie later even called the album as its 'Phil Collins -year'. Glen writes:

- I was on holiday in southern France the year it was released, and Bowies voice was playing from all of the speakers at the cafes and transistor radios at the resort - and you really had to dance when he sang 'Put on your red shoes'.

From 'Let's Dance' (1983)

#2 : 'Life on Mars'

A cross between a Broadway musical and el Salvador Dali painting. This was how the single was described by a BBC radio host. This description hits the feeling very well, the number mixes surreal text with musical happiness and drama. A combination that makes it almost impossible to sit still. Norman loves it:

- The first love is always the one they remember best. With David Bowie was the 'Life on Mars', which I heard in my big brother's cassette player when he was not home. It opened a whole new musical chapter in my life.

From 'Hunky Dory' (1971)

#1 : 'Heroes'

It's hard to find *THE* Bowie signature, but only a few numbers set equal imprints as 'Heroes'. Created by Bowie in coorporation with Tony Visconti and Brian Eno and sung in French and German - in addition to English in the original - was 'Heroes' already tipped off to a very good start. Today, 'Heroes' appear on most Top lists of the world's best songs and is also what our users favorite the most. Here is a selection of recitals, fans have shared with us:

- 'Heroes', because that was what he was and is. (Peter )
- The best song ever made of the greatest musical artist ever lived. (Randall)
- It is distilled youth: love, hope and faith in life - and an awareness that everything must end at some point. (Audrina)
