Songs about Heroes or Heroines

Just trying to think up a new song topic, so maybe try this one. Think of songs about your heros or heroines. Songs may have hero in the title or lyrics (those are easy), but others may be inferred by something a person has done, or be in reference to a particular person. Be creative! 

 

So here are my first picks to get started -

 

Holding Out for a Hero - Bonnie Tyler

 

Candle in the Wind - Elton John (in reference to Marilyn Monroe and later Lady Diana)

"Music can change the world because it can change people." - Bono
