I thought this would be a nice little tie-in as I’m doing a review of a children’s title about David Bowie today as well.
Music Monday is a meme started by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. Pick a song you really like and share it.
I hope it will always be that David Bowie’s music transcends time. You don’t listen to many songs recorded in 1977 and feel that they could be played on today’s radio, but “Heroes” definitely could.
“‘Heroes'” has received numerous accolades since its release, as seen with its inclusion on lists ranking the “greatest songs of all time” compiled by the music publications; Rolling Stone named the song the 46th greatest ever, and NME named it the 15th greatest. Bowie scholar David Buckley has written that “‘Heroes'” “is perhaps pop’s definitive statement of the potential triumph of the human spirit over adversity”.
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
Then we could be heroes just for one day
from Heroes, written by David Bowie and Brian Eno

I was a big fan and I still have difficulty with the fact that he is gone.
I know a lot of people who were affected by his death. He was a powerful talent and seemed like a very kind individual.
Though he’s gone, his music will live on.
