David Bowie – Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing (Reprise)
The David Bowie songs ‘Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing (Reprise)’ with some pictures of him through the years. Possibly the best song on the Diamond Dogs album, If not one of his best ever, and very beautiful… One thing : If you don’t like the slideshow I’m dreadfully sorry but it’s the best I’ve got, and I’m not going to take it down and change it because that would be stupid. I don’t own David Bowie or any of his music, exept copies of his CDs, because that would be silly. If you do own the music and want me to take it down, go ahead.
What is your favourite David Bowie song? One of my favourites is Candidate off the Diamond Dogs album, I love the lyrics.

That dance magic dance song from The Labyrinth; “you remind me of the babe, what babe, babe with the power, what power, power of the voodoo, who do, you do, do what, remind me of the babe”
I’ve been going through his discography recently. So far, my favourites are ”Wild is the Wind” and ”Five Years”.
Five Years is one of the great songs to start an album, I also really like The Man Who Sold the World which has spawned some interesting covers.
What’s your favorite song by David Bowie? I absolutely love him.My parent’s think I’m a total nutter because I listen to what they used to my age, but mine would have to be either Teenage Wildlife, Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing or Let’s Dance :’)How can I choice a best answer, all the songs are amazing!
Space Oddity. A timeless classic.youtube.com/watch?v=cYMCLz5PQVwIts great that you listen to Bowie, shows that diversity does exist in the younger generation.

My boyfriend and I love Bowie, our song is Space oddity, it isn’t really a love song. But on our first date it came on and we sung it to each other . 10 years ago lol. *tears up* lol
