Week 39 - "Heroes" (David Bowie, 1977)

He would have been 70 tomorrow.  It’s hard to believe that he’s been gone for almost a year.  In the madness that followed through out that year and the strange political climate that continues to this year, I realized I really needed to sing this song.  This song, originally recorded in the 70’s in Berlin depicts lovers separated by the Berlin Wall.  His performance of the song in West Berlina decade later is considered a catalyst to the eventual fall of the Berlin Wall.   

Happy almost birthday, Starman.  We miss you dearly.


Week 6 of 52 Weeks - The Man Who Sold the World (David Bowie, 1970)

What can I say about David Bowie?  The man was a visionary, a genius and a true artist.  It’s his otherworldly-ness that attracted me to his work.  He also told such great stories through his songs and his style moved with the times but yet he remained, well…David Bowie.  This is one of my favorite songs.  Thank you, Bowie.  We miss you.
