MOJO'S LATEST COVER STAR David Bowie has spent the last five decades exhilarating, entertaining and occasionally confounding fans with his extraordinary music and pivotal evolutions in image. To celebrate his unique journey, MOJO's staff and writers have compiled the ultimate run-down of Bowie's 100 Greatest Songs, each of which is expertly re-evaluated and probed in a 32-page special at the heart of our new issue, available from Tuesday, December 30.
From Bowie's 1966’s coming-of-age The London Boys and the glam riff-ola of Hang On To Yourself, to the theme tune to Absolute Beginners and this year's B-side ’Tis A Pity She Was A Whore, our list includes timeless classics, out-there surprises, and perhaps the odd track that has so far eluded your Bowie radar (please feel free to test yourselves, Dame fanaticos).
So scroll through the list below, ranked in reverse order of Bowie brilliance, and let us know on Twitter (@MOJOmagazine) and MOJO’s Facebook page what choices you agree with, what you take umbrage at and – gadzooks! – what you think we may have missed out.
Whatever, you're in for a Bowie treat…
