Seventy-five years ago today Elvis Presley was born, and in 1947 a man named David Robert Jones—or David Bowie as we know him—arrived, too. (Also celebrating birthdays today: The Doors’ Robby Krieger, Jenny Lewis and R. Kelly. January 8th rocks.) As a gift to the Thin White Duke on his 63rd birthday, this weekend’s Rock List is dedicated to David Bowie songs. Leave your picks in the comments, and on Monday we’ll reveal an awesome playlist. Until then, re-familiarize yourself with Bowie’s catalog — Tonight is pretty damn underrated — and check out some of our faves below:
