The Catholic League did David Bowie a huge favor this week. Just as his new album was falling off the charts, they released a statement saying that his new video for "The Next Day" was the work of a "switch-hitting, bisexual senior citizen from London" that "is strewn with characteristic excess." Just as the Italian-American organizations that protested Jersey Shore helped turn that show into a giant hit, the Catholic League almost certainly brought a ton of eyeballs to Bowie's video.

Now we have a question for you: what is your favorite David Bowie song? It can be anything out of his huge catalog, from "Space Oddity" to "Let's Dance" to "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)." You can opt for a super rarity like "We All Go Through," a fan favorite like "Station to Station," a huge hit like "Modern Love" or a new song like "Valentine's Day." Vote for whatever you want, but please only vote once and only for a single song. We know it's hard to select just one Bowie song, but please do your best.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
