Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Fame

Answer: Young Americans

The 1975 album "Young Americans" saw Bowie leave behind his glam rock roots and experiment with soul and R&B music. The album made number two in the UK and number nine in the USA. "Fame" was released as a single and gave him his first US Billboard number one, although in Britain it stalled at number 17.
2. Starman

Answer: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

"Ziggy Stardust", as the album is usually referred, to was released in 1972 and reached number five in the UK. "Starman" was the only single taken from the album, and it cracked the top ten in Britain.
3. Drive-In Saturday

Answer: Aladdin Sane

"Aladdin Sane" was released in 1973 and was Bowie's first UK number one album. "Drive-in Saturday" was set in the year 2033 and reached number three on the UK singles chart.
4. Golden Years

Answer: Station to Station

The 1976 album "Station to Station" saw Bowie introduce a new persona, "The Thin White Duke". The album reached number three in the USA and number five in Britain. "Golden Years" was released as a single, making it to number eight in the UK.
5. Ashes to Ashes

Answer: Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)

Released in 1980, "Scary Monsters" gave Bowie his first UK number one album since "Diamond Dogs" in 1974. "Ashes to Ashes" was released as a single and was also a British number one. The lyrics to this song reference Major Tom, the protagonist of his previous UK number one hit, "Space Oddity".
6. 1984

Answer: Diamond Dogs

"Diamond Dogs", released in 1974, gave Bowie his third UK number one album. It also reached number five in the USA, his highest placing there to that date. The album is influenced by George Orwell's novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four", with "1984" and "Big Brother" taking their titles directly from that book.
7. Modern Love

Answer: Let's Dance

Released in 1983, "Let's Dance" topped the UK album chart and made number four in the USA. The title track also topped the UK singles chart, whilst "Modern Love" and "China Girl" both reached number two. All three tracks made the US Billboard top ten.
8. Life on Mars?

Answer: Hunky Dory

"Hunky Dory", released in 1971, made it to number three on the UK album chart. "Life on Mars?" wasn't released as a single until 1973, when it also made number three in Britain. The surreal lyrics have nothing to do with the planet Mars!
9. Blue Jean

Answer: Tonight

"Tonight" was released in 1984 and topped the UK album chart. "Blue Jean" was released as a single and reached number six in the UK and number two in the USA, his highest placed single there since "Fame" topped the Billboard chart in 1975.
10. Sound and Vision

Answer: Low

Released in 1977, "Low" was the first album in Bowie's "Berlin Trilogy", the others being "Heroes" and "Lodger". "Low" made it to number two in the UK and number 11 in the USA. "Sound and Vision" was released as a single, making number three in the UK.
