This is the 6th
entry for Bowie
in The Definitive 1000 [6 if you include the song with Queen
]. This clearly makes Bowie the leader so far with only the Beach Boys
, Neil Young
all sitting on 5 entries. Don't worry Beatles
fans, they are sitting 4. Which just goes to show you that this "countdown" is not packed 40 entries deep with just the likes of the Doors
, Led Zeppelin
, Beatles and other artists of that ilk.
It was always the desire we had to keep this countdown balanced and especially acknowledge the songs and artists who were not favourable in Rolling Stone magazine
the one hit wonders, songs not
from just the USA
and most of all, the artists that Rolling Stone magazine simply choose to ignore. For a classic example of that i only have to mention Neil Diamond
and to be blunt [& no not James
], we could possibly name a 1000 more.
