Tom Chaplin of Keane - Hunky Dory
The first Bowie album I got into and still my favourite just because it's got so many good songs. It's quite a long album, and he went so many different places afterwards, but that kind of version of him is the one I can most identify with. It's almost like a greatest hits in itself with an unbelievable number of proper classics on it! One of my favourite ones is 'Kooks', which is about having a kid and being a couple of kooky and alternative parents and wondering how the fuck you're going to bring it up.
