Enjoyable reading but meh cuts, for the most part. I think we should do our own. Perhaps I'll have some suggestions later.

Some rather obvious choices for deep cuts ( 'Win', 'Queen Bitch'..did the journalists not get the memo?), but I'll be checking out some of the 90s selections as my knowledge of his albums from then is still pretty patchy.

The loneliest guy is a bloody good call , Sons of the silent age is sadly missing , it's a giant of a song.

Enjoyed reading that. There’s so much depth to that catalogue, you can just get lost as if wandering in a glorious museum or art gallery. I just listened to The Lonelisest Guy and it’s a magnificent, entirely realised prototype of the tropes he returned to on Blackstar - and yet, I’d never really focused in on that one despite having a lot of time for Reality. I can see yet another Bowie jag approaching...

The Loneliest Guy? ... oh dear Lord that one is awful ... a turgid maudlin affair, so cliched. The worst track on the underrated ‘Reality’ ... I sort of assumed Bowie was contractually obliged to perform it on tour to increase sales of beer in the foyer!

Yes, I don't understand the appeal of that song either
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.
