"Conversation Piece" was the b-side to the original 1970 version of "The Prettiest Star" (which featured Marc Bolan on lead guitar) and came out inbetween his second (eponymous) album (aka "Man of Words/Man of Music", or Space Oddity) and "The Man Who Sold The World". Bowie recorded a new version for his unreleased 2001 album "Toy", which later found release on the bonus disc of Heathen.

    Toy version is one of my favorite Bowie songs.

    Amazing song! Superb vocals and lyrics. Great stuff. Both versions are extremely different, which makes the song even better. How come it was never released on an album? I found it in Heathen's bonus disc, why wasn't it included in the actual album along with other tracks from Toy? It's way better than some of the stuff on Heathen.

    How is this song so beautiful?

    The Toy version is OK, but in my opinion the original is much better. I think, with it's simplicity, it better conveys the feeling of abject dissociation from the day to day world.
