This is a cover of the late great David Bowie’s 1970 release “The Man Who Sold The World”. I grew up in the time of Nirvana, and was 17 when he died, but I wasn’t a very big fan at the time, as I grew older they grew on me more, and this cover in 1993 was one of the songs that I always liked from them, and prefer it over the David Bowie version (but the Midge Ure version is my favorite)

The Lyrics

We passed upon the stair
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn’t there
He said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone
A long long time ago
Oh no, not me
I never lost control
You’re face to face
With the man who sold the world
I laughed and shook his hand
And made my way back home
I searched for form and land
For years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazley stare
At all the millions here
We must have died alone
A long long time ago
Who knows
Not me
We never lost control
You’re face to face
With the man who sold the world
Who knows
Not me
We never lost control
You’re face to face
With the man who sold the world
