AbaOblongata's current selection is:
"Heroes"
by David Bowie
The twelfth studio album by the English musician was the second installment of his "Berlin Trilogy." It continued the ambient experiments of his previous album Low (released earlier that year) and featured contributions by King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp. Of the three albums, it was the only one wholly recorded in Berlin.

The title track remains one of Bowie's best known and acclaimed songs, and has been cited as his second-most covered song after "Rebel Rebel." The song tells the story of two lovers, one from East Berlin and one from West Berlin, inspired by the sight of Bowie's producer and engineer Tony Visconti embracing his girlfriend by the wall. The quotation marks in the title of the song, a deliberate affectation, were designed to impart an ironic quality on the otherwise highly romantic, even triumphant, words and music. Bowie scholar David Buckley has written that "Heroes" "is perhaps pop's definitive statement of the potential triumph of the human spirit over adversity."
