The world was shocked on Monday to hear that pop superstar David Bowie passed away after “a courageous 18 month battle with cancer”, his team said in a statement.
As most fans reminisce with some of his classic hits, here's one you probably haven't heard – Heroes in French (or Héros as it was called here).
The song was released in 1977 along with a German version called Helden. Listen here:
The video below is another version of the same song, in both English and French, along with French lyrics on the screen so you can sing along at home.
RIP David Bowie. 1947 – 2016.
We can be heroes, just for one day.
Or as the great man sang himself – “On peut être héros, pour juste une journée.”
