Janelle Monae- “Heroes” (David Bowie cover)


I can’t hear this song without thinking of the “tunnel scene” from the movie “The Perks of Being A Wallflower.” Even before that movie gave the song a renewed popularity, it had always been near and dear to my heart.

Janelle Monae has done a great job with her electro-poppy cover of this classic David Bowie song. She allows the listener to experience the song in quite a different way; the vocals and instrumentation are more upbeat and sunny, and the whole arrangement feels refreshing.
