Because Mr. Bowie has offered an eclectic mix of sounds during his 40-plus year a career and is frequent selection on the Del Ray Patch HQ playlist, we reached out to Del Ray Patch Twitter followers for their favorite Bowie tunes.
Here’s what was offered:
@DelRayPatch: #DavidBowie turns 66 today. What's your favorite Bowie tune, #DelRay? This is a tough one for me. I'm going to go with "Sound and Vision."
@Kiskadee_Shop: Had such a crush on him in the 80s. Too hard to choose just one!
@AtomicOvermind: Either "Heroes" or "5:15 The Angels Have Gone."
@SGerock: Has to be "Let's Dance" @DelRayPatch #DavidBowie
@Igotnuthin333: "Heroes" or "Rebel Rebel." Depends on the mood. Looking for wallow or classic rock and roll.
@Shawn_Mullins: Rebel Rebel, or Ashes to Ashes.
@PorkyHops: I’m afraid of Americans.
@MidgetInn: Have to go with the classics: Space Oddity and Starman. Hard to believe these Bowie songs came out ~40 years ago.
@Gtwodagee: Conversation Piece is an awesome DB classic.
@tinagee: "China Girl," followed closely by "Blue Jean."
@jalynhenton: "Stay" off of Station To Station. It's the first Bowie song that I instantly loved, at age 7. Still dig it after all this time.
