  1. I dunno. I really liked Peter Gabriel’s version of “Heroes.” Of course, no one can do it better than Bowie. But do check out Gabriel’s version. And since it was also in Stranger Things, it can’t get any cooler than that.

    1. I didn’t even know that Peter Gabriel did a version! I LOVE Peter Gabriel…. I’m probably one of the only people who hasn’t watched Stranger Things. I started the 1st season and loved it. Stopped to watch it with my man….. then never started again! Lol! Now, he’s been a jerk and passed me and I’m alone in my dark corner…. Adding a write in vote!

      1. Why don’t you suggest that your bar have a Stranger Things Trivia Night? Then you have an excuse to watch it. I dare say your bosses would even let you watch it at work in preparation for the event. Just a suggestion…..

  2. The Wallflowers – well bless them, they tried, but a pointless cover as they just are not in Bowlies league.
    Peter Gabriel – well trust him to take a great swing rhythm and f**k it up, no wonder Genesis did better when Phil Collins took over. Needs to remember K.I.S.S. (keep it simple,stupid).
    Bowie- This is one of the few songs of his that I love to bits. Great lyrics, compelling riff, lush swing rythm and builds beautifully. A masterpiece. Wins my vote
    .Great story about how the song came about here- https://www.loudersound.com/features/the-story-behind-the-song-heroes-by-david-bowie.

      1. Motorhead did a version?!? Geez…. This is what I get for putting up a Music Monday from work. Usually I do my research!!! I might have to add that! I agree about the wallflowers. But, it’s nostalgic 90s for me!! Bowie is the love of my life… So, it’s difficult to pit anyone up against him. He’ll always be my one and only (well… Him and Kevin Hearn from BNL.. 😘) And, I found Peter Gabriel’s version very… Eerie.
