David Bowie – Heroes (live)


David Bowie – Heroes (live)

You, You can be mean

And I, I’ll drink all the time

‘Cause we’re lovers, And that is a fact

Yes we’re lovers, And that is that

Though nothing

Will keep us together

We can beat them

For ever and ever

Yea, We can be Heroes

Just for one day

What d’you say, I say

I

I wish you could swim

Like dolphins

Like dolphins can swim

Though nothing

Will drive them away!

We can beat them

For ever and ever

Oh we can be Heroes, Just for one day

What d’you say, I say

I, I will be king

And you, You will be my queen

Though nothing

Will keep us together

We can beat them, For ever and ever

We can be Heroes, Just for one day

I, I can remember [I remember]

Standing, By the wall

And the guns

Shot above our heads [over our heads]

And we kissed, As though nothing could fall

And the shame

Was on the other side

we can beat them, For ever and ever

we can be Heroes, Just for one day

What d’you say, I say

We can be Heroes, I say

We can be Heroes, I say, I say

We can be Heroes, Just for one day

We can be Heroes, But We’re nothing

And no one can help us

Maybe we’re lying

Then you better not stay

We can be Heroes , Just for one day

William Shatner’s Own Space Oddity

a new, space-themed spoken-word album, Seeking Major Tom.
The two-disc set features a laundry list of popular musicians, from Lyle Lovett and Peter Frampton to Sheryl Crow and members of the prog-rock bands Asia and King Crimson.

Seeking Major Tom tells the story of the fictional astronaut in David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and what happens after he steps out of the space capsule.

At 80, Shatner shows no signs of slowing down. Where does he find the energy for a third album?

Well, as you get older, you become more sensitized to the fact of how ephemeral life is.
So that relishing life, every moment, like talking to you right now is the most enjoyable thing I can imagine because it’s what I’m doing right now. That’s the way I think we should feel.

The spaceman altered some of the lyrics of Bowie’s 1969 version, singing “Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing left to do.” The Bowie version goes “… and there’s nothing I can do.” And instead of “Take your protein pills and put your helmet on,” it became, “Lock your Soyuz hatch and put your helmet on.”
