OK, this format has been on hold for a while, we previously had an Abba quickie rate and an ABC vs Adam Ant quickie rate, but that was so long ago a refresh of the rules is needed!

It's a vote system designed to force you to pick tracks you are passionate about - there's no giving a dozen tracks the same rate, there's no junking of tracks that might polarise opinions, it's totally about how much you love just a few tracks.

The Points go:

1. (Your fave track) 10 points
2. (Your 2nd fave) 7 points
3. 4 points
4. 2 points
5. 1 point


So your absolute fave matters, it will get lots of points, and you can't say you love them all the same, you have to choose.

David Bowie's career spanned from the mid-60's to his death in 2016, and he recorded a vast amount of material, which you can find here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Bowie_discography

I'm not going to list and cherry-pick any tracks to try and rig the voting, it's all up to you! Got about a week to vote then the results.....

OMG Bowie is one of my favourite artists of all-time so condensing his entire discography down to just a few songs is beyond difficult. But nonetheless here are my faves:

1. Ashes to Ashes
2. Modern Love
3. Beauty and the Beast
4. Moonage Daydream
5. Cat People (Putting Out Fires)
6. Rebel Rebel
7. Fashion!
8. Fame
9. Letís Dance
10. Starman
11. Space Oddity
12. Heroes
13. Sound and Vision
14. Lazarus
15. The Jean Genie

I love Slow Burn, it was the song that got me back into his newer stuff again and showed he could still do it!
