"Heroes" by David Bowie (my favorite songs)

billkozyBillkozy on 08/11/2015

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!!

Beats Prog Rock hands down but not one of Bowie's best.

Great song! I didn't do great, couldn't remember all the lyrics. I could've had the lyrics right in front of me, I own the "Heroes" cd, but what would be the point of that? Other players WILL have the lyrics right in front of them, and that's a shame. Thanks for this Kerblunk, it brought back great memories of a wonderful song!
