I, I will be King And you, you will be Queen Though nothing will drive them away We can beat them, just for one day We can be heroes, just for one day. And you, you can be mean And I, I'll drink all the time 'Cause we're lovers, and that is a fact Yes we're lovers, and that is that. Though nothing, will keep us together We could steal time, just for one day We can be heroes, for ever and ever What d'you say? I, I wish you could swim Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim Though nothing, nothing will keep us together We can beat them, for ever and ever Oh, we can be heroes just for one day. I, I will be King And you, you will be Queen Though nothing will drive us away We can be heroes, just for one day We can be us, just for one day. I, I can remember I remember Standing, by the wall by the wall And the guns, shot above our heads over our heads And we kissed, as though nothing could fall nothing could fall And the shame, was on the other side Oh, we can beat them, for ever and ever Then we could be heroes, just for one day.

It was released on 23 September as the lead single from his 12th studio album of the same name , backed with the song " V-2 Schneider ". A product of Bowie's "Berlin" period , the track was not a huge hit in the United Kingdom or the United States after its release, but it has since become one of his signature songs. Inspired by the sight of Bowie's producer-engineer Tony Visconti embracing his lover by the Berlin Wall , the song tells the story of two lovers, one from East and one from West Berlin. Bowie's performance of " 'Heroes ' " on 6 June , at the German Reichstag in West Berlin has been considered a catalyst to the later fall of the Berlin Wall. The song title is a reference to the track " Hero " by German krautrock band Neu!
The Grateful Dead considered "whipping that chain" and "lugging propane," but settled on "high on cocaine" for "Casey Jones. The Phoenix song "" is about Paris.

Eddie played by Johnny Depp in the video found fame fleeting, but Chuck Berry's made-up musician fared better. The Red Hot Chili Peppers have some rather unusual song titles - see if you can spot the real ones. An interview with Frankie Valli, who talks about why his songs - both solo and with The Four Seasons - have endured, and reflects on his time as Rusty Millio on The Sopranos.
I think possibly his marriage was in the last few months. And it was very touching because I could see that Tony was very much in love with this girl, and it was that relationship which sort of motivated the song. The basic track had already been started by Bowie and Brian Eno in the weeks before, with Visconti behind the mixing desk. So that particular dogma would dictate how the song is going to come out, rather than me and my sense of emotional self. On a broader level, living in Berlin itself was an oblique strategy for Bowie. Bowie threw his restricted chord progression out to the band, and they ran with it, building an eight-minute groove into a triumphant crescendo. The underlying riff of Heroes came from guitarist Carlos Alomar, with the hypnotic pulse provided by bassist George Murray and drummer Dennis Davis. The final touch was added by guitarist Robert Fripp. Fripp marked with adhesive tape the spots on the studio floor where he could lock into certain singing tones.
