Interestingly, the one likely to chart highest this week, Heroes, only at No.11.

Heroes and Life On Mars are way too low considering they're in the top 3 Bowie songs in the midweeks. At least the radio stations got 'Starman' and 'Let's Dance' right.

Baffled that Heroes was only 11th?!

Surely the most remembered track of the 21st century by him after its use at the olympics opening ceremony!

Is Changes his most famous track that didn't chart?

It's that or Ziggy Stardust really. Although Ziggy did for Bauhaus in 1982

Changes just seems like part of the cultural make up of the country can't believe this week will be its first charting if it goes top 75!
