Neuköln

  • Co-written with Brian Eno, this is the last of three consecutive instrumentals on Heroes, following "Sense of Doubt" and "Moss Garden."
  • The song was named after the mainly Turkish Neukolln district of Berlin (correctly spelled with a double "L"). Bowie lived in Berlin between 1976-78, although not in Neukölln but in Schöneberg.
