Good gods, where do you even start with such a grand, momentous statement? This is my favorite David Bowie song. By such a huge margin that it’s not even close.
From the moment I heard it, “Heroes” utterly floored me like very few songs ever had, so much so that “Heroes” was the first David Bowie album I ever bought.
Put it this way: if David Bowie had been some guy who happened to collaborate with Brian Eno for this one record and then died in a car crash, there would be “Heroes.”
