#48. David Bowie – ‘V-2 Schneider’ (1977)

I can’t just post the obvious Bowie tracks.

This mostly-instrumental jam was written as a tribute to Kraftwerk founder Florian Schneider, and for me has always been a highlight of the “Heroes” album, the middle album in Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy. But you probably knew that.

This song was also the b-Side to the ‘Heroes’ single, which, incidentally, is the Bowie ┬ásong that people are listening to the most in the wake of his passing.

    1. Yeah, I’ve always loved this song but didn’t realise that connection until the day I posted this and did a quick Google search for any fun facts about the tune – the Kraftwerk reference seems so obvious in hindsight, ha.

      Maggot Brain is my desert island album – I’ll never get tired of it.
