Wind Beneath My Wings  

I just made this Bowie 'cover' of Bette Milder's 'Wind Beneath My Wings'.

The lyrics:
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly high than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Note: I couldn't find a suitable "Higher", so I changed it to "High"

Now, can anyone tell me which Bowie songs I took each word from? Every single word is from a different song (although one of them is arguably the same song as another... you'll understand if you find out which one it is).

I think this is quite difficult, I'm not sure. The third line seems the easiest.

Note: This is my first try at such a thing, go easy on me.

10 out of 10 for originality, but being perfectly blunt with you syndrome, to my ears it's an audible mess, sorry.

As you say it's your first go, maybe better luck next time.

Bit of fun there.

It also raises what could be done with Bowie's speech (as opposed to singing).

What, like, talking?

Anyway, isn't anybody going to satisfy me and guess a few? At least guess where I got "Hero" from.

It's too annoying to listen to more than once. Sorry.

Clue time! new [re: syndrome]  

Here are some clues:
There is a word from an Outside segue.
There is a word from Helden (and that's the song I was on about as being arguable used twice)
Just listen to the pitch of the second My, it's quite revealing. Bowie sings at this kind of strange pitch (and manner) throughout the whole song.
If you simply listen to the You're, you can hear just a little bit of the next word... And someone's already guessed this song for a different word (they were wrong).
