The 'Songs From A to Z' covers songs written, recorded, covered, produced or played live by David Bowie, either by himself or for other artists. Except in cases of exceptional interest the material covers from 1964 - ie. The King Bees - onwards. Some Bowie books have cited long lists of numbers mooted for Bowie's 1968 cabaret act; the songs contained here are those that David actually rehearsed, omitting the many that never went further than Kenneth Pitt's notebook. Where appropriate, prominent cover versions of Bowie 's songs are mentioned, but there is no attempt to include every last one; among those not included are covers found on 'tribute albums' recorded by obscure bands.
