Guess it's moot, but "Save The Life Of My Child" certainly isn't. (And it's a favorite of mine. Great album.

I think S&G are a much, much better singles act than albums but what singles!! FWIW my fave album is Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme.

My thinking on Golden Years was that although it was a popular album cut, it's not Heroes/Space Oddity/Man Who Sold The World level of recognisability,


"Golden Years" is much better known to me than "Heroes" or "The Man Who Sold The World." I know each of them is a Bowie track, but I can't remember how either one sounds, while "Golden Years" was a top ten hit, I heard it all the time when it was current.

"Heroes" and "Man Who Sold" did not even crack the top 100 in the USA.

yeah but DDD =/= mainstream 70s perspective. no matter where they charted, both Heroes and The Man Who Sold the World got covered by 90s bands right as 90% of DDD's membership was growing up (Heroes by The Wallflowers for the Godzilla soundtrack when most of us were about 8-10 years old, and Man of course by Nirvana which almost everyone under 40 has heard).

It's so good. I almost picked The Stars In His Head, but I nommed that for an earlier song tourney so I decided I'd go with my second favorite of his instead.
