DAVID BOWIE Released His Classic Anthem ‘HEROES’ 42 Years Ago Today…

Knockouts from the past

23 September 2019


Artist: David Bowie
Song: Heroes / B-side: V-2 Schneider
Released: 23 September 1977, 42 years ago
Album: Heroes
Note 1 : Bowie wrote the song after seeing his producer/engineer
Tony Visconti and his girlfriend by the Berlin Wall. The song tells the
story of two lovers, one from East and one from West Berlin
Note 2 : It was co-written with Brian Eno and recorded in July
and August 1977 in the legendary Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin
Note 3: Despite the fact that it wasn’t a big hit (reached only #24
in the UK and didn’t chart in the USA) it became one of Bowie‘s most
famous and most covered songs. An epic diamond, a solid gold and
timeless achievement with the immortal line for all lovers, then and
now: “We can be heroes, just for one day…”

Here’s the masterstroke…
