One of These Things

Here's a sampling of some of the music I've been listening to lately,
All these songs are fairly typical of the music that I most enjoy. Well, except one. Can you determine the outlier? For bonus points, can you tell me how I first became aware of and interested in this tune?

* Darling Violetta also performed the theme to Angel.


  1. Hmm... Mel C certainly isn't an artist who I would have thought would produce Michael-acceptable music, but that song seems to be right in your stike zone. Bowie is clearly the time period outlier here, and "Life on Mars?" might very well be a Rock Band track, so that would be my first guess.

    Of course, Bowie's influence on a lot of your favorite music is pretty strong...

  2. Bowie is indeed the correct answer. However, "Life on Mars?" is not, to my knowledge, a Rock Band track. Instead, I first became interested in it after it was used in the British TV series of the same name.
