Actually, this is just a favorite songs comp. However, the set was released in 21 different regions with 21 different track listings (and there were also single and double disc versions for many regions). The track listings were determined based on which Bowie songs were most popular in each of the 21 regions. So a Best of Bowie purchased in Chile would be different from one purchased in Germany, because, apparently, Chileans like different Bowie songs than Germans. The track listing here is the UK and Europe 2 disc version. My version (US 2 disc) has Moonage Daydream on it (among other differences).

An excellent overview. In response to yeyemy34, moonage daydream, was not a single. It's a singles compilation, not a favourite songs album. You can't complain with the quality of songs. Brilliantly entertaining.

Bowie is a hit and miss for me. Young Americans, Golden Years, Heroes, Ashes to Ashes, Fashion, Modern Love, This is Not America, and Blue Jean just don't do it for me. Maybe it is because of the whole 80s not being my thing, thing. The rest is amazing. Space Oddity, Changes, Fame, Under Pressure, and I'm Afraid of Americans are my fav of his best of stuff.

I guess this is a deluxe version or something, as Spotify version has 20 songs, and a different listing.

Decided to pick this up to nab some of his well-known non-album and soundtrack-only songs. Also I don't have the album Space Oddity was on so that alone made it a worthy buy. Worth it if you want an okay beginner's guide to Bowie.
