Music Monday and Heroes ~ #DavidBowie

Co-written with Brian Eno, “Heroes” is considered one of Bowie’s most inspirational songs. The tune contains a certain sense of irony but also holds an optimistic, hopeful message.

Bowie opened the benefit Concert for New York City following the 9/11 attacks with two songs: Simon and Garfunkel’s “America” and “Heroes.” His song was performed to honor the first responders from the New York City Fire Department and New York City Police Department.

May “Heroes” inspire you to have a creative and productive week,

Music Monday celebrates Memorial Day in #NYC with #America

This is the third time I’m featuring First Aid Kit, Swedish sisters who sing wonderful harmonies. I’m in New York City enjoying the Memorial Day long weekend, Fleet Week, and time with family and friends.

This classic tune written by Paul Simon is a reminder that the themes of optimism and hope never grow old. I thought its melancholic mood a fitting one as Americans remember those who died serving in the United States armed forces.

Enjoy the sweet sound and lyrics of “America” and have a good week ahead,
