The song and the album Heroes Are Hard to Find - Fleetwood Mac

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIARC-2ji6I

 

A nice song and album, all around (1974)

 

Edit:   That was the last album with Bob Welch and just before Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks

My very favorite version of Heroes by David Bowie is the English-German version, with a video extracted from a German movie "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo" about a young girl's true story of falling to heroin addiction.

Edit:  my German co-worker was astonished when I asked him about the movie a couple years back. He was astonished that anyone here in the US had even heard of the movie. Made me happy to see him so excited about this.

"You've Made Me So Very Happy"

       by Blood, Sweat and Tears

 

"I lost at love before
Got mad and closed the door
But you said try just once more
I chose you for the one
Now I'm having so much fun
You treated me so kind,
I'm about to lose my mind
You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life"
