Music Monday: The Man Who Sold The World

"The Man Who Sold the World" is a song by David Bowie released in the U.S. in November 1970 and in the UK in April 1971. A live rendition of the song was recorded by Nirvana in 1993 during their MTV Unplugged appearance. I hate a David Bowie version, just love a Kurt Cobain in a acoustic version. I can feel a sadness in his voice. R.I.P Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994.)

The Man Who Sold The World - lyrics

We passed upon the stare
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone
A long long time ago

Oh no, not me
We 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 gazeless stare
At all the millions here
I must have died alone (Alt: I must have died along)
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
