my hero

Today I just want to share with you a great song by one of my all time favourite singers - Bowie. This is a little known version of "Heroes", a german one. The song was also recorded in french, but I don't think it sounds as good.
This song is my idea of classic Bowie, and every time I hear it it reminds me of Christiane F. I must have read the book when I was 15 and shortly after that I saw the movie on the franco-german channel on TV. This story has marked me a lot, and I often wonder what has happened to Christiane since leaving crazy 70s Berlin. Bowie was a major star in Germany at the time, even more than in England I think.

Don't you just love Bowie? Anyway, what's everybody else been listening to?

  1. When I was in my teens I also read a book called "PregĂșntale a Alicia", it was written as a journal of a teenager who was iniciated in drugs as well. It's also from the 70s, don't know what the real title was. I'll try to find it out. What I remember is that that story marked me as well.
    Heroes! what a classic! "Starman" is my favourite though.
