David Bowie - Heroes (live) How a song makes the connection to a Place and Time

I was fortunate enough to see
Bowie back in 1983 on his 'Serious Moonlight Tour" in Toronto.
The concert was beyond amazing and his live performance

was so outstanding that it
felt at times was watching a Shakespearean play.

If given the right character
to play he would undoubtedly be magnificent.Maybe American Horror ;)

As for this song I posted, I
will always associate with a memorable event in my life that took
place in 1981 in Ottawa..

A movie night with work
friends from the British American Banknote turned into a nightmare
after leaving the cinema where we had just finished watching
'Christiane F' with Bowie's soundtrack 'Heroes'. Our van was stolen
that night but what really became the nightmare was later that
morning when my boyfriend ( my husband) and I received a call from
the Ottawa police informing us that our van was involved in a serious
crime which later discovered the crime committed was a drive by
shooting between two very prominent known gangs in the city. The
situation only worsened with the ongoing investigation and were
advised by RCMP to go into hiding for a few weeks until things
settled down.

It was like living a scary
movie . Anyway, to this day I still adore the song : )

All's well that ends well : )
