No, this is not a joke! American actor (????) and part time singer (????), David Hasselhoff has only gone and released a cover version of Bowie’s “Heroes”. How did this come into being? Well, I’m still scratching my head too! Who gave this the green light?
The now 66 year old American has even recorded a German version otherwise known as “Heldon”. I’m just hoping he steers away from the French version to spare us all the pain and suffering. You can catch a live performance of the song recorded earlier this month and the studio version is available on Spotify as well as the other usual streaming outlets.
The Hoff was best known for his TV roles in Knight Rider and Baywatch but also shot to fame in 1989 with Looking For Freedom. The song was played far too many times to remember when the Berlin Wall can down in the November of that year.
I can’t see this latest Hoff release putting too much pressure on the pop charts though stranger things and all that in this age of viral fads.
