94. 7. David Bowie - "Heroes"
“We can be heroes… just for one day.” The title track from the ultimate Bowie “Berlin” album was recorded in the West German city in the shadow of the infamous wall. It depicts the crumbling relationship of two lovers, trying for one last stab at reconciliation. Surprisingly, it wasn’t a huge hit at the time, but the song’s reputation is assured in the wake of Bowie’s death in 2016.
