1. Suffragette City
2. Modern Love (don't judge -- I love this song)
3. Ziggy Stardust
4. Ashes to Ashes
5. Space Oddity
Modern Love almost made my top 5, but ended up choosing Under Pressure instead.

I got no problem with those being top 5 picks either.

I got no problem with most of these.

Heck, if it's a Bowie song recorded between 1969-1980, it's probably totally defensible.

I can't be the only one who is surprised that Hoy didn't select "Dancing In the Street" just to be a dick?

I am going to tabulate the results based on a 5 pts for 1st, 4 pts for 2nd etc. Don't tell my work, this is a monumental waste of time.

I thought he'd use it for at least three of his choices.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed
