HE MIGHT HAVE FLOATED himself on the stock market recently, but there was a time when David Bowie was close to the zeitgeist. In 1976, he introduced himself as The Thin White Duke and managed somehow, unlike his peers, not to totally alienate the outrageous, safety-pinned and body-scarred punk youth. As a rock star who personified otherness and inspired clones by the thousand, Bowie...

David Bowie - "Heroes": Wikipedia Album Entry
"Heroes" is an album by David Bowie, released in 1977.
The second installment of his "Berlin Trilogy" with Brian Eno (the other releases being "Low" and "Lodger") "Heroes" developed the sound of "Low" in a more positive direction. Of the three albums, it was the most befitting of the appellation "Berlin", being the only one wholly recorded there.
The title track remains one of Bowie's best known, a classic story of two lovers who meet at the Berlin Wall. The album is considered one of his best by critics, notably for the contributions of guitarist Robert Fripp who flew in from the U.S. to record his parts in one day. John Lennon was quoted as saying that when making his album "Double Fantasy" in 1980, his ambition was to "do something as good as "Heroes".". It was named NME Album of the Year.

Joe the lion, went to the bar
A couple of drinks on the house
An' he said, "Tell you who you are
If you nail me to my car"
Sons of the silent age
Stand on platforms blank looks and note books
Sit in back rows of city limits
Lay in bed coming and going on easy terms
The secret life of Arabia
Secret secrets never seen
Secret secrets ever green
John saw a golden city
New Jerusalem come down.
Twelve jasper walls and gates of pearl, such splender all around.
And He tells about a river of live, the flows beneath the thrown.
The Bible it tells us in God's words so true
The sweet Holy Spirit is promised to you
It sat upon Jesus in the form of a dove
When John was baptizing God's dearly beloved
