Nice idea for a quiz. Might be better with a line from each song though. (Maybe use a subset of these.) The color scheme is very Bowie-esque as well!
Sep 15th, 2009 at 02:25 GMT
Thanks. I usually try to have a color scheme that fits the quiz. For this one I used the colors for the letters on the Ziggy Stardust cover.
Sep 16th, 2009 at 23:56 GMT
Love the color scheme, especially the idea behind it, although it is a little blinding at first. Nice quiz though!
Sep 22nd, 2009 at 19:00 GMT
By the way, the US songs all made the top 20 on either the Hot 100, or Mainstream Rock or Modern Rock charts. We are still waiting for Bowie to make the top 20 on the Country charts.
Sep 22nd, 2009 at 22:24 GMT
I feel like I would like this better if US and UK were organized into separate columns. Other than that, it's a cool idea.
Sep 23rd, 2009 at 01:06 GMT
@Annie: It certainly would, but that would take administrator intervention. I can't control that, but I've requested it.
Sep 24th, 2009 at 06:01 GMT
A whole lot of songs here that I didn't know, and I was shocked not to see Suffragette City.
Sep 25th, 2009 at 17:55 GMT
Great quiz! I was kicking myself over some that I missed. The color scheme is a bit blinding though, but I appreciate the Ziggy-esque sentiment. Perhaps you could also note what number each song reached on the charts? And maybe it would be better to do alphabetical instead of by year? (matter of preference, I guess)

America really loved Bowies 80's MOR phase.
Sep 26th, 2009 at 19:15 GMT
Surprised that Changes and Ziggy Stardust didn't chart that high.
Sep 28th, 2009 at 15:27 GMT
What shocks me is that no one has yet been able to identify Bowie's Christmas Classic - there are alternatives that match just the separate titles, so it's not impossible.
Sep 29th, 2009 at 23:59 GMT
wow, no "changes"
Sep 30th, 2009 at 00:01 GMT
also kind of ironic that "young americans" charted in the UK but not in the US
Sep 30th, 2009 at 17:54 GMT
His duet with Jagger on "Dancing in the Street" is quite possibly the worst song ever recorded.
Oct 7th, 2009 at 07:33 GMT
my feelings are hurt at how many of my favorite bowie songs aren't on here, haha. changes, ziggy stardust, suffragette city, heroes. oh well. great quiz!
Nov 16th, 2009 at 20:05 GMT
I did embarassingly bad on this haha. But I tend to like all the songs that no ones ever heard of. Got the Laughing Gnome though, that makes me happy.
Dec 3rd, 2009 at 02:34 GMT
how is "changes" not anywhere on this. That has to be in Bowie's top 5 most popular songs.
Mar 27th, 2010 at 18:29 GMT
I agree with everyone who mentioned "Changes." Surprised "Heroes" isn't on either list too.
Mar 27th, 2010 at 18:33 GMT
@zertrudetrout: Bowie only had 5 top 20 hits in the 80s on the Hot 100. The rest were on the Mainstream Rock chart. @marpocky and @biskutt: Ziggy Stardust was not released as a single.
Jun 4th, 2010 at 20:57 GMT
Maybe Changes has become more popular over time. You know, things ch-ch-change!
Jul 8th, 2010 at 20:43 GMT
That American column seriously depresses me. I'm a Bowie fanatic and I only got over 50% of these.
May 10th, 2011 at 01:59 GMT
I pretty much blanked on all of the 80's. Oh well.
Jun 21st, 2011 at 00:21 GMT
I really hoped for Heroes, Changes and Suffragette City too. I didn't get many of these...most of my favourites are ones that people don't seem to know.
