FlinterFile: David Bowie- Heroes

David Bowie moved to Germany in 1977, to record the album Heroes.Actually there are three albums (Low, Heroes and Lodger) which are counted to the Berlin Trilogy, but only this one was fully recorded in the Hansa studio’s in Berlin. He worked on the album with Tony Visconti and Brian Eno, who wrote this song with him. The couple by the wall, which inspired Bowie, were actually Visconti and Antonia Maass, the back-up singer who also translated the song to German. The song was recorded with the synthesizers of Brian Eno and Robert Fripp (King Crimson) on guitar, and Visconti banging an ashtray. The song would make number 24 in the UK after the release in 1977. After his death, the song returned to the charts und made number 12. Enjoy
