"Heroes" by David Bowie (my favorite songs)

|Some songs don't jump out huge right out of the box, and then some time passes and after a while people catch up to the song, and lo and behold it perhaps even becomes that singer's signature song. I guess such is the case with "Heroes" by David Bowie. |
The song is so ... well, heroic sounding, as it unrolls the Bowie/Brian Eno Wall of Sound concoction that features a wave of rolling guitars and synthesizers and percussion. To me, it's such a great masterpiece of a song that even a movie like The Replacements (Gene Hackman, Keanu Reeves), which at times seems like a good movie and at times doesn't, wins you over in the end with the use of this Bowie song in the climax.
There's a Wikipedia article about how the song was created, technically speaking, in the studio that is, and I think it's a fascinating read if you're interested.
Rolling Stone magazine has it ranked at #46 on its "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list.
You can be heroes!!
