    iSelect (or iSelectBowie)[1] is a David Bowie compilation CD first released 29 June, 2008 in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland only.

    This CD is a collection of personal favourites compiled by Bowie himself [2] and was available exclusively as a free gift with the June 29th edition of British newspaper The Mail On Sunday.

    The compilation is notable for two reasons. Firstly that Bowie avoided the usual greatest hits route and instead compiled a selection of favourite album tracks. Indeed the album contains only three singles (Life On Mars, Loving the Alien, and Time Will Crawl).

    Sorry if we did this before. I thought we had. But I couldn't track it down.

    What would be your 12 song Bowie 'iSelect' type compilation and running order?

    Apparently that was deliberate.

    Oh well, it's just that it happens to be quite frustrating that my taste doesn't match with Bowie's taste... er... regarding... er... Bowie himself.

    Would you be so kind to psychoanalyze me?
