Is There Life on Mars?

"and you, you can be mean, and i, i'll drink all the time"

You wish you could swim, like dolphins can swim. You're "Heroes". In an attempt to cleanse yourself, you isolate yourself away with iggy pop in berlin, and along with tony visconti, brian eno, and friends produce a few of your finest works to date. You're a song of desperation, that has grown in time into a work of inspiration and strength.

Released on the album of the same name in 1977, the song has gone on to become an anthem of sorts for bowie. when it was initially released as a single, it had been done so in three languages: english, french, and german.
