Abstract

‘Heroes’” is a song written by David Bowie and Brian Eno in 1977. Produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti, it was released both as a single and as the title track of the album “Heroes”. A product of Bowie’s fertile ‘Berlin’ period, life in the city was crystallized into a tale of two lovers who come together in the shadow of the ‘Wall of Shame’ (though here “the shame was on the other side”). While not a huge hit at the time, “Heroes” has gone on to become one of Bowie’s signature songs and is well known today for its appearance in numerous advertisements. It has been cited as Bowie’s second most covered song after “Rebel Rebel”.

It was the lead track on Peter Gabriel’s 2010 covers album, Scratch My Back. Among other notable covers, The Wallflowers recorded a version of the song for the soundtrack to the film Godzilla. This version peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart in 1998, as well as number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart, and number 23 on the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream charts.
