“Station To Station” Songs Ranked

This is easily one of my favourite albums of all time (probably top 3), and it’s definitely the best Bowie record in my eyes. All 6 songs are just sublime, but how would I rank them?

Check out my other Bowie list, where I ranked all of his albums:


6 – TVC15

I genuinely think every song on here is at least an 8 or 9 out of 10. If I had to pick a worst, I’d probably cry to myself for a bit before reluctantly picking this one.

The little piano riffs are great, and that chorus is catchy as hell. I just don’t really connect with this one as much as the others (a terrible excuse I know, I really can’t think of anything else wrong with this song).

5 – Stay

George Murray’s bass work is stellar throughout this album, and that’s perhaps most prominent on this banger.

This is really a chance for the band to have some fun, and Bowie’s vocals aren’t half bad either.

4 – Wild is the Wind

I had a really tough time picking between 3rd and 4th, and sadly it’s “Wild is the Wind” that has to lose out.

This is a very strong contender for Bowie’s best vocal performance ever, and it’s always been a favourite of mine ever since I heard the album all the way through for the first time. A beautiful way to close the album.

3 – Word on a Wing

Turns out this was my most played song of 2019 on Spotify, so bonus points for that.

This has to be one of the most beautiful songs Bowie ever wrote, and the key change half way through is euphoric. No wonder I’ve had this underrated gem on repeat for ages, it’s brilliant.

All-Time Great

2 – Station To Station

Bowie managed to fit two all-time classics on this album, and taking the silver medal is the titular epic that opens the record.

This is probably the best song over 10 minutes in music history – the way it seamlessly progresses from its slow and methodical opening to its frantic finale is spectacular. You can definitely tell Bowie was high on coke when he made this masterpiece.

1 – Golden Years

Bowie purists would probably choose the title track over this, but “Golden Years” has always held a special place in my heart.

It’s a Bowie song that I’ve always loved, long before I properly delved into the Thin White Duke’s catalogue. It has one of the best guitar parts I’ve ever heard, and all the parts just come together so wonderfully. Definitely one of the best songs ever made.

Aaaaaand that’s my ranking. I’m planning on doing a lot more album track rankings in the near future, so make sure you look out for those. In the meantime, here’s my latest posts:

“Conflict of Interest” – Cases Ranked / Review

After playing and loving “Contempt of Court”, I decided to play the other renowned Ace Attorney fangame – “Conflict of Interest”, itself inspired by the former. It got off to a shaky start, but I was thoroughly impressed with it by the time the final credits rolled. Before I give a quick review, let’s rank…

Super Mario Galaxy – 10 Best (& Worst) Stars

Super Mario Galaxy is easily one of my favourite games of all time, and I’ve already ranked each galaxy, but that doesn’t tell the whole story – I’m going to pick my 10 favourite (and least favourite) stars / levels. As an added challenge, I’m not going to pick any of the purple coin levels.…

The Office (U.S.) – Season 2 Episodes Ranked

Here it is ladies and gentlemen – this is where The Office became one of the best comedy shows of all time. Rarely has a leap in quality between seasons been so enormous! Before I rank every episode, here are a few of my related blog posts: 22 – Christmas Party Rating: C A fan-favourite…

  1. Interesting. I’ve long considered Golden Years my least favourite track on the album. It just feels a bit out of place, seems more of a Young Americans track. Otherwise pretty much agree with the rest of your ranking, just moving every other song up a spot!
