Highest - Aladdin Sane. Also the piss take of Ricky Gervais on Extras.
Lowest - The Christmas thing ^^ with Bing Crosby where Crosby obviously had no idea who Bowie was. Also thought the Alabama Song was dreadful.

I liked and still like "Dancing in the Street", Great driving version which doesn't take itself seriously.

Yep - me too. I like his version of the Alabama Song as well, but i think its one of those 'marmite' pieces of music that really divides opinion​...
So many basses, so little time...

Space Oddity, tho it's really Herbie Flowers' bassline that kills it, one of the most complex basslines to learn note for note as it travels over every inch of the fretboard.

No-one else in my Bowie covers band seems to believe me when I tell them what hard work that line is! I've tried and given up learning it a few times now and they still insist I could do it standing on my head.

Lots of highs for me, anything with Carmine Rojas playing on it is a joy to play, adore Blackstar. Too many to mention really.

We always start our set off with Station to Station which I'm not a fan of but that's a personal low. I find some of his later output a little MOR but none of it's bad as such. Never heard Tin Machine so maybe I should just to have a definitive answer here!

Glad it's not just me then. :D
