Probably not a popular choice but a song that struck me from first hearing as being quintessential Bowie.

Have to say though that it has many challengers and it could change but I give you...

That documentary last night. I was amazed at how many songs he wrote and how most of them flopped - even Hunky Dory. Many of the songs had very intricate lyrics if not all.

He was a very driven man in the pursuit of success and if I had to judge between his natural talent and his determinedness to succeed it would be a close run thing.

Even in the early days it was always David Bowie and the "???" The "???" numbered more than 10 different line ups. He was ruthless when sacking musicians. Many found out during a live performance on stage.

A truly great performer and writer has to be said

Bowie got into Jacques Brel through his adoration of Scott Walker.

Brel was Belgian not French.

When he tried to meet up with Brel in Paris, Brel refused, calling him a ďfaggotĒ

Before his passing I would always have said Queen Bitch was my favourite Bowie song, but since then there is something very poignant about Life On Mars that I never noticed before.

All the songs on this thread and no-one has said Suffragette City!

It's very hard to pick one but that would be up there for me.

He`s a bit like Dylan, in so much as he has some many great songs you can change a favourite every week.

Probably not my favorite, but an honorable mention to Little Wonder which is from the mid 90's album Earthling and although it's "heavily" influenced by drum & bass it never falls into pastiche, and demonstrates how he didn't just churn out the same thing even later in life.
