Repeating the formula of Low's rumental structure, Heroes develops and strengthens the sonic innovations David Bowie and Brian Eno explored on their first collaboration. The vocal songs are fuller, boasting harder rhythms and deeper layers of sound. Much of the harder-edged sound of Heroes is due to Robert Fripp's guitar, which provides a muscular foundation for the electronics, especially on the relatively conventional rock songs.
Heroes – David Bowie From the Album Heroes – 1977 (Bowie/Eno). This is the Album version. All the other versions on this site are the single version.
In 1977, David Bowie was in the middle of yet another transformation. With the October release of Heroes, he took further steps into a more electronic-flavored sound that first reared its head on the Low album issued earlier in the year. Often referred to as his "Berlin Trilogy" due to the influence of the city where much of the recordings were made, the trio would be complete with Lodger from the 1978. All three albums are distinctly different, yet have a unifying sonic theme. This is most evident on the album's title song. Heroes" is one of the most perfectly beautiful songs ever recorded. It practically glows as it emanates from the speakers. Based on a simple Velvet Underground-esque riff, the haunting quality envelopes its own simplicity.
Album: Heroes (1977). Charted: 12. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. David Bowie told Q magazine's 1001 Best Songs Ever: "It's a bitch to sing, 'cos I really have to give it some towards the end. I pace myself throughout the show and often place it near to a point where I can take a vocal break afterwards. As long as I'm touring I don't see a time when I won't be singing 'Heroes. It's a good one to belt out and I get a kick out of it every time. This was originally an instrumental composition, whose title was a reference to the 1975 track "Hero" by the German Krautrock band Neu!.
