Bowie on Springwatch

A British program, Springwatch, recently name checked 49 Bowie song titles in one television episode. The host, Chris Packham has been playing this game, unbeknownst to the other stars on the show, for several episodes now. On other shows, he mentions The Smiths and Manic Street Preachers song titles. He does this entirely ad lib, because the show is filmed live, so he has to have a good knowledge of the artist's catalog. He says Bowie is one of his favorite artists. Can you guess them all? See below the video for complete listing. Here is a link to the story.
