I held out hope, because it had to be a new master, I don't think it's ever been released in 1:85 before.

The director would've had to sign off on it, right?

JSYK.
You're right. The you tube is a fake. They have the cues all wrong.

The original version, Winkler exhales, the intro to the song begins -

"Carry on my Wayward Son
There'll be peace when you are done"

Sally Field says "You're okay."

"Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you Cry No More"

The guitar riff is edited out as they cut to long shot - "Once I rose above...

Pull back on the line -"I was soaring ever higher..."

Credits begins as- "Though me eyes could see...

Thanks all for pointing out that the YouTube version is not in fact the original ending.

I asked the film's director about the DVD and he said that he had no input on the song replacement and he too was disappointed that the song was dumped.

I did an IMDB and he's had an interesting career.

I'm going to ask one more time for people to write Universal at the following link to voice their displeasure.

That was the one and only thing that comes to my mind when I think of that movie. The t.v. spots were good with that song.
Is there a thread for movies with replaced hit songs?

There is a country song I'm not familiar with playing in the bar scene. I wonder if it has been replaced as well.

Just emailed Universal Home Video. Hope it sheds some light for them that the core audience for this film - the people who would have bought this on release day - are not going to settle for second best.

They did this same thing for the first release of "Sixteen Candles", but when it was re-released in 16x9 and 5.1 they DID restore the original soundtrack completely. So there is some hope...

BTW, I DVR'd "Heroes" off of the Sundance channel, and I was shocked to see the version they showed also did not include the song at the end. Especially now knowing that AMC has shown the film with the proper ending music in tact...but that channel sucks regardless, simply because they edit content, and have commercial interruption. No one wants that. Seems the only movie loving channel out there is Turner Classic Movies.

Re: Heroes - Henry Winkler Song Replaced?

The Kansas song was in the original and Henry wrote me some time back saying something about legal problems so the song was removed. I agree that it isn't the same without that song but there is nothing we can do about that apparently. Darn...

Take care,
