We can be heroes

I heard Depeche Mode do their cover of Bowie’s Heroes as part of their live tour last year, and finally they have put out a version online as part of the Highline Sessions. The song has a particular history in Depeche Mode, it’s the song he sung at his audition to get into the band, him and Martin bonding over a mutual love of Bowie. There have been many covers of this song, but probably none more emotional than the last half – as the interview I linked pointed out, he sobbed when Bowie died and knew him socially/casually as both their kids went to the same school.
