Quick story on Bowie’s 75th bday:

He wrote “Heroes” about a German couple so determined to be together that they meet everyday under a gun turret on the Berlin Wall

“Though nothing
will drive them away
We can be heroes
just for one day”

In 1987, he sang “Heroes” in a landmark concert at the wall in West Berlin.

He said, “We send our wishes to all our friends who are on the other side of the wall!”

1000’s of East Berliners couldn’t see — but they could hear. They cheered and shouted “The wall must go!”

“God, even now I get choked up,” Bowie later recalled. “It was breaking my heart. I’d never done anything like that in my life, and I guess I never will again.”
