Uncle Arthur (Bowie): from the 1967 David Bowie album. The mono edition uses a slightly different mix, omitting the hand claps in the intro and outro. Also see the Early Works section.

Uncle Floyd (Bowie): recorded for Toy but as yet unreleased. A reworked version appeared on Heathen as 'Slip Away'.

Under Pressure (Bowie/Queen): this co-operation with Queen was released as a single in 1981 (EMI 5250) and on the Queen album Hot Space. The original single version was reissued in 1988 as a 3" CD-single (Parlophone QUECD9) and reappeared on The Platinum Collection and Nothing Has Changed. A slightly edited version (3'57" vs. 4'05") was included on the Queen Greatest Hits II compilation, while a 4'04" remix was released on Classic Queen. Both eventually found their way onto Bowie compilations: the edit from Greatest Hits II was used for The Singles Collection and Best Of Bowie, while the remix ended up on The Singles 1969-1993. In 1999, yet another remixed Rah Mix was released as a single (EMI CDQUEEN 28) from the Greatest Hits III compilation. A second CD-single (EMI CDQUEENS 28) featured a Radio Edit of the Rah Mix and a Mike Spencer Mix; the video contains a version of the Rah Mix that is slightly longer (4'10" vs 4'06"). A Club 2000 Mix appeared exclusively on a white-label 12" (EMI QUEENWL 28). An instrumental version has appeared on the Greatest Karaoke Hits CD (TOCP-65061/2) and on one of the menus of the Greatest Video Hits II DVD. In 1991/2, Brian May toured radio stations in the US to promote new releases, during which he added extra guitar to album tracks, including 'Under Pressure'. Such a recording has been released as a "studio rehearsal with Queen" on the Alternative Biography (Alter Ego Records) 2CD. A genuine demo of the track in very early form, supposedly including Bowie on piano, circulates as 'Feel Like'. Bowie performed 'Under Pressure' live, in duet with Annie Lennox, on the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert (London, Wembley Stadium, 20-04-92), which has been released on The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. A recording from the Outside tour (Birmingham, National Exhibition Centre, 13-12-95) is officially released on the 'Hallo Spaceboy' CD-single (Arista/BMG 7432211 35382 2). It was also played on the Earthling tour, the shows Bowie did in 2000 and on the Reality tour (included on the A Reality Tour 2CD/DVD). The video, which features neither Bowie nor Queen, has been released on The Best Of Bowie 1980/1987. The video clip for the Rah Mix features live footage of Bowie and Freddie Mercury; it is available on the second CD-single and on the Queen video Greatest Flix III.

Under The God (Bowie): the first single from Tin Machine (EMI MT 68). A US advance cassettecontains an edit fading at 2'17". Live versions (Sapporo, Hokkaido Koukseinenkin Kaikan, 10-02-92 and Hamburg, Docks, 24-10-91) are found on the Oy Vey, Baby CD and video respectively. 'Under The God' also appears on several 1989 and 1991/92 bootlegs. The video trailer of the Tin Machine album features excerpts from Tin Machine/Prisoner Of Love/I Can't Read/Working Class Hero/Bus Stop/Pretty Thing/Video Crimes and Under The God in full length. The Under The God segment (but not the entire trailer) is available on iTunes.

Underground (Bowie): from the Labyrinth soundtrack. An edited version (4'25" vs. 5'57") was released on 7" (EMI EA 216), backed by an Instrumental. An Extended Dance Version, Dub Mix and a different Instrumental can be found on 12" (EMI 12 EA 216); the latter is longer (5'54" vs 5'36") and lacks the gospel choir present on the single B-side. The single edit initially was reissued on CD only on a Unistar 3CD from 1993, but later was included on the Chile and New Zealand editions of Best Of Bowie and The Platinum Collection. The Extended Dance Version unofficially appeared on Dancing Queen (Westwood One WWI vol. 56). In 2007, four versions were officially re-released as the Underground EP; the single B-side Instrumental remains unreleased in digital form. A small piece of a studio outtake of this song was featured in a TV special on the making of Labyrinth. The video clip of this song (4'38") is featured on The Video Collection and the Best Of Bowie DVD. Note: the official lyrics provided by EMI include a verse between the first and second refrain that is unavailable in any of the above mentioned versions: When will I afford you/Don't turn around/You're turning slower/That's underground.

Untitled No. 1 (Bowie): from The Buddha Of Suburbia.

Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed (Bowie): from the 1969 David Bowie, which was re-titled later in 1972 as Space Oddity. Many sources claim that the US version of David Bowie (often referred to as Man Of Words, Man Of Music) features a longer version of this song, but 'Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed' on this album is exactly the same. The confusion probably has arisen from the fact that the song duration on the sleeve incorrectly adds the time of 'Don't Sit Down' (which has been left off the US version). BBC live versions from 1969 and 1970 (the first is available on the 40th Anniversary Edition of Space Oddity, the latter on Bowie At The Beeb) are discussed under BBC Performances.

Up The Hill Backwards (Bowie): the fourth single from Scary Monsters (RCA BOW 9). Two alternative versions are released on the Vampires Of Human Flesh (Midnight Beat MBCD 021) CD, one of them being very close to the original version. Partly used in the opening of the Glass Spider tour (and released on the Glass Spider video and in two live versions on the Special Edition DVD)

Waiata (Bowie): on 23-11-83, David attended a Maori welcome of songs, speeches and traditional food at the Takapuahia marae in Porirua, New Zealand. At the ceremony, he sang a self-composed short song, which was aired on Radio New Zealand 25 years later.

Waiting For The Man (Reed): a 1967 studio version, recorded the The Riot Squad, was released on Audiodisc acetate and later appeared on the Little Toy Soldier (Albino AL 7153 HC 3104) bootleg. In 2012, it was officially released on The Riot Squad compilation The Last Chapter: Mods & Sods. The sound quality of this version, however, is much worse than the bootleg version, plus it contains an intro from an entirely different source. A better sounding version, that still doesn't manage to match the sound quality on the bootlegs, appeared one year later on The Toy Soldier EP (Acid Jazz AJX329S). Bowie recorded 'Waiting For The Man' for the BBC Sound Of The Seventies program in 1970 (on BBC Sessions 1969-1972 Sampler) and twice in 1972 (the 18-01-72 performance is featured on Bowie At The Beeb); it has also been played live on the 1971, 1972 and 1976 tours, just once on the 1991/92 Tin Machine tour (Vancouver, Commodore Ballroom, 21-12-91), and on the 1996/97 tour. Lou Reed joined Bowie on stage in London, Royal Festival Hall, 08-07-72 (on Bowie With Reed (DB72-5-4/DB72-7-8)) and on Bowie's 50th Birthday Concert in New York, Madison Square Garden, 09-01-97 (on 50th Birthday Bash (BPCD 973282-1/2), etc.). Officially released on Live Santa Monica '72, the 'Ziggy Stardust' (Golden Years GY CDS 002) promo/CD-single released from the semi-official Santa Monica '72 (on which it lasts 5'33" instead of the album's 6'01"), the BBC Sessions 1969-1972 Sampler and Live Nassau Coliseum '76.

Wake Up (The Arcade Fire): performed live with The Arcade Fire at Fashion Rocks (New York, Radio City Music Hall, 08-09-05) and at an Arcade Fire concert one week later (New York, Central Park SummerStage, 15-09-05). The first was released as Live EP (Live At Fashion Rocks).

The version used in the Omikron: The Nomad Soul game is identical to the hours... version. According to the booklet of several localized versions, also an Easy Listening Version should appear in the game, but this is incorrect.

We Are Hungry Men (Bowie): from the UK edition of the debut album David Bowie; it was omitted from the US edition.

We Are The Dead (Bowie): from Diamond Dogs. The same version was used as B-side of the 1976 'TVC 15' single (RCA 2682), but was more correctly credited 4'57" (instead of 4'48" on the Diamond Dogs LP).

The Wedding (Bowie): opening track...

The Wedding Song (Bowie): ... and closing track of Black Tie White Noise.

Weeping Wall (Bowie): from Low. An early version of this song is supposed to be released on the rumoured bootleg The Visitor (NWE Records NEWT 1) mentioned in "An Illustrated Record", but this LP does not exist. Performed only on the Heathen tour, together with the rest of the Low album; available on On Broadway (DB110602; New York, Roseland Ballroom, 11-06-02) and Total Meltdown (Switch On! SO 2002-06-1/2; London, Royal Festival Hall, 29-06-02).

What's Really Happening (Bowie/Gabrels/Grant): as a contest, Bowie put the music to this song on BowieNet, providing fans the possibility to write the lyrics (BowieNet - Cyber Song Contest). The song, with lyrics by winner Alex Grant, appeared on hours... with a different backing track.

When I Live My Dream (Bowie): the most familiar version of this song is found on the 1967 David Bowie debut album. A re-recording, intended as a single, eventually was released on the Love You Till Tuesday LP and subsequently on the The Deram Anthology and the Deluxe Edition of David Bowie. A third version, using the same backing track as the single version but with a slightly different vocal, was issued as a test pressing only. This version has unofficially been released as 'My Dream' on the Te Amo Hasta Martes (DREAM DM-100) 7" and later also appeared on The Forgotten Songs Of David Robert Jones (SPQR Records SPQR5CD). Two versions used in the 1970 mime performance for 'The Looking Glass Murders' are found as bonus tracks on the Love You Till Tuesday DVD. Yet another version, recorded in 1969 for a German TV program and partly sung in German, is discussed as 'Mit Mir In Deinem Traum'. Bowie performed 'When I Live My Dream' live for the BBC in 1967 (see BBC Performances). The session was officially released in 2010 on the Deluxe Edition of David Bowie.

When I Met You (Bowie): from the Lazarus musical. The cast version, sung by Michael C. Hall and Krystina Alabado, and Bowie's own version have appeared on Lazarus. In 2017, Bowie's interpretation was issued on the No Plan EP.

When I'm Five (Bowie): two demos of this song circulate. A 1968 demo is found only on an acetate, coupled with 'April's Tooth Of Gold'. In 1969, Bowie re-recorded the song with John 'Hutch' Hutchinson. This demo is found on The Beckenham Oddity (Leisure Records 005) and its re-releases. The best known version was recorded for the BBC on 13-05-68. As it was used in the 1969 film Love You Till Tuesday, the BBC recording appeared that film's soundtrack LP and CD. The song was even released as a single in the Philippines (Decca DEC-08-A), backed by 'The London Boys'. Oddly enough, it is the only song from the 1968 Top Gear session omitted from Bowie At The Beeb, but fortunately it was included as a bonus track on the Deluxe Edition of David Bowie.

When The Boys Come Marching Home (Bowie): a Heathen outtake released on the 'Slow Burn' (ISO/Columbia COL 672744 2) and UK 'Everyone Says 'Hi'' (ISO/Columbia 673134 3) CD-singles. Reissued in the Sony box with five Japanese mini LPs.

When The Wind Blows (Bowie): released as a single from the soundtrack of the same name. It has been re-released on the 1995 Virgin re-release of Never Let Me Down, the Chilean and German/Swiss/Austrian editions of Best Of Bowie and recently on The Platinum Collection and The Best Of Bowie 1980/1987. The single (Virgin VS 906) contained an Instrumental on the B-side; the 12" (Virgin VSG 906-12) featured an Extended Mix. All three versions were reissued in 2007 on iTunes as the When The Wind Blows EP. The 3'33" video clip largely uses scenes from the film; it can be found on The Best Of Bowie 1980/1987.

Where's The Loo (Bowie): from the Ernie Johnson rock opera.

White Light/White Heat (Reed): only live versions are available. Bowie played this song on two 1972 BBC radio sessions (one of which is featured on Bowie At The Beeb; also see BBC Performances). Two Ziggy Stardust tour live versions (Kingston, Polytechnic, 06-05-72 and, together with Lou Reed, London, Royal Festival Hall, 08-07-72) have appeared on the Bowie With Reed (DB72-5-4/DB72-7-8) 2CD. It also has been performed in 1973 (released in 1983 on RCA 372 as a single from Ziggy Stardust - The Motion Picture with a 3'54" video clip), 1983 (Serious Moonlight DVD), 1987 (Glass Spider video), 1990 (Milton Keynes 5th August 1990 (GEMA BOW 003/004)), 1997 (including a duet with Lou Reed on the 50th birthday concert), 2002 (with the Dandy Warhols in London, Royal Festival Hall, 29-06-02) and 2003/04.

The Width Of A Circle (Bowie): opening piece of The Man Who Sold The World. Compared to the RCA CD, the version on the 1990 Rykodisc/EMI edition has slightly been speeded up (8'05" vs 8'12"). Two early versions Bowie recorded in 1970 for the BBC clearly show the song progress into the epic it eventually became; the performance for the 1970 The Sunday Show has been released on Bowie At The Beeb. Also played on most of the live shows between 1972 and 1974. Live versions appeared on Live Santa Monica '72, Ziggy Stardust - The Motion Picture (the full length version not appearing until the 30th Anniversary Edition) and David Live.

Wild Is The Wind (Tiomkin/Washington): originally from Station To Station, it was released as a single and 12" (RCA BOW 10/T10) in 1981, as an eye-catcher for the ChangesTwoBowie compilation.

Wild-Eyed Boy From Freecloud (Bowie): the acoustic version of this song (4'42") was released on the B-side of 'Space Oddity' (Philips BF 1801). In several territories, the B-side was in stereo and included a spoken introduction. The US single (Mercury 72949) contains an edit that fades in at the start of the second verse (3'14"). Initially released on Sound + Vision I without the spoken intro, but the 2003 Sound + Vision reissue and 40th Anniversary Edition of Space Oddity both have the complete version; the original UK mono version was included on Re:Call 1. A fully orchestrated version appeared on the 1969 David Bowie, the 40th Anniversary Edition of which also features an alternate mix. Finally, a live version was released as part of a medley also featuring 'All The Young Dudes' and 'Oh! You Pretty Things' on Ziggy Stardust - The Motion Picture. See the BBC Sessions section for two 1970 BBC versions, one of which has appeared on Bowie At The Beeb. Also played sporadically on the 1972 Ziggy Stardust tour.

Win (Bowie): from Young Americans. A remixed version, in which the synthesizer effect in the intro no longer travels from speaker to speaker, appeared on the Rykodisc reissue. Later EMI reissues restored the original mix. The Dolby 5.1 and DTS 5.1 remixes on the 2007 Young Americans Special Edition do not fade out.

The Australian single (RCA 102584), which listed the track as "The Young Americans", first contained the full version, though this was switched to the US edit; label timings for both issues indicate the full version. A unique 4'02" edit is included on the Australian/New Zealand editions of The Best Of Bowie LP. The single edit was re-released on a/o Rare and Best Of Bowie (but clocking 3'16", the running speed having been readjusted).

The performance on the Dick Cavett Show (02-11-74) has been released on the Best Of Bowie, Dick Cavett: Rock Icons and the 2007 Special Edition of Young Americans.
