    I don't want to go out, I want to stay in and get things done...like beating you up for omitting "Modern Love." Nobody respects the Thin White Duke era...

    Just kidding, man. Great bracket, and you're never going to make everyone happy when you're trying to condense a 30 year career into eight songs...

    No blaming Taumpy for the choices. It was all me.

    (And it was insanely difficult to narrow it down.)

    Sorry Zuul, but Space Oddity should really be there. So I will at least write it in to the two hole and waste my vote.

    Man, Life on Mars is a better song than Space Oddity any day. Put your write in vote in bracket 4. I could get behind Space Oddity being better than Rock and Roll Suicide (but only just).

    For the record, write in votes aren't going to count. If you want to pick songs, do it next song battle. OCS, Modern Love is in fact a great song. You should be glad I didn't pick the songs for this one because they'd all be from the 80's. You'd be cursing me for including China Girl.

    1a) Ziggy Stardust

    2a) Life On Mars?

    3a) Let's Dance

    4a) Rock 'n' Roll Suicide

    I love Ziggy Stardust. That album is probably the first record I ever really fell in love with.

    That said, there is no way the song Ziggy Stardust is better than Life on Mars? Y'all are insane.

    1b) Life on Mars?
    2a) Heroes

    Heroes

    I agree with you, NAF. Although Life on Mars? doesn't win against Heroes anyway, so it doesn't matter.

    Probably not. Still, it should have had the chance.
