David Bowie – Heroes/Helden / Heroes/Héros (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 27th January 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1977

A. Front

“”Heroes”” is a song by English musician David Bowie, written by Bowie and Brian Eno. Produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti, it was recorded in July and August 1977, and released on 23 September 1977. A product of Bowie’s “Berlin” period, the track was not a huge hit in the UK or US at the time, but has gone on to become one of Bowie’s signature songs. In January 2016, following Bowie’s death, the song reached a new peak of number 12 in the UK Singles Chart. “”Heroes”” has been cited as Bowie’s second-most covered song after “Rebel Rebel”.

Bowie’s performance of “”Heroes”” on June 6, 1987 at the German Reichstag in West Berlin was considered a catalyst to the eventual fall of the Berlin Wall, similar to that of Bruce Springsteen’s concert at Radrennbahn Weissensee a year later.

In Germany a 12″ single was released which featured the song performed in English and German as well as English and French.
