Oh @50yearslate it's so much better in context. Go listen to Station to Station and you'll understand it*... which is why I don't understand why they'd single it out like that. It simply isn't meant to be. It isn't nearly great enough on its own to attain such a prestigious rank...

*or maybe you won't, it's a pretty odd album

It's also my favourite, mostly. ahdn_george_08

Anyway, I can think of at least three songs from the album that would have been better candidates for Best Bowie Song Ever (title track, Golden Years, Word on a Wing), and I'd personally have nominated/expected "Heroes"...

...back on topic, I need to listen to something besides my sister singing the same thing over and over and over and over and over a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Word On A Wing is so beautiful, definitely one of Bowie's best tracks.rnI'm completely addicted to this song since I watched Lost In Translation for the first time in a while and realised what song Scarlett's Johansson's character was singing in the karaoke scenern

@Beatlebug does this belong to you?

Edit: Nevermind, this post belongs to QuarryMan.

Had a very strange glitch:

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Hehehe I'm not sure what happened, since I don't remember typing the mention of Beatlebug at the bottom, so I guess that part must be you. Looks like our posts merged, but you were credited paul-mccartney-thumb_gifahdn_george_06

@QuarryMan  The flood-control thingy happened and your post showed up in my reply box, and I added the Beatlebug part because it mentioned Bowie and so I assumed it was Beatlebug. I only posted it because I didn't want her/you to lose your response. Guess it was you though, sorry for the mistake paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Love one another.

This is like the third time today that it's happened, so strange and confusing paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Anyways, to get this thread back on topic, I'm listening to Reality. David's version of Try Some Buy Some is not at all bad but it just makes me want to listen to George a-hard-days-night-paul-8

I went hunting for this clip that I had a vague memory of discovering in my early days of Beatles fandom and found it. Maybe this isn't the perfect thread to post it in but I'm sure anyone who hasn't seen this will want to, it's the Anfield crowd singing She Loves You . Gives me goosebumps every time, since I'm so used to hearing large crowds singing Oasis songs over and over.
