Nowhere near as neat this round!

Two songs are safe on a vote each
One song safe on 4 votes. One song out on 5 votes.

So - we lose our second highest entry for David Bowie - the absolutely wonderful "Starman". Is it glam? Well, I'd guess so - not the most blatantly glam, but who cares, it's pretty glam, and it's a fantastic track.

Well, from early on it was looking like this might happen, and this round confirms it.

One song got 3 votes. One song got 4 votes. One song leaves with 6 votes.

In third place, we lose our highest entry from an act for whom their entire career qualified as glam. Beating the likes of the Sweet, Slade, Gary Glitter, Alvin Stardust, Mud, Wizard et al, we have our highest entry for the band originally called Tyrannosaurus Rex. It's a great rock classic, but in the end "Get It On" bows out in third place.

"Life On Mars" is one of my top 5 songs of all time. I can appreciate that Bowie had a very definite glam era, and "Life On Mars" was released during it - but I just can't see it as glam rock.

"Killer Queen" is again from a definite glam rock era of Queen, but I wouldn't question (not that I'd really considered it as such before) that it's a glam rock song - and a great one at that, so my vote is for the Queen classic.

Bowie though I wish T. Rex had made the final.

Agree with Matthew though, Life On Mars? isn't really glam so much as that it was issued as a single during the glam period (as it came out as a single two years later than the album) even though the Hunky Dory album was decidedly un-glam.
