Description

Combine your love for vibrant prints and a sporty style with a cool drawstring bag. It’s a must-have gym essential that From David Bowie’s third album of the same name, The Man Who Sold the World was never released as a single by Bowie. In 1974, Scottish singer Lulu released a cover of the song at Bowie’s urging. David Bowie produced the single with the original guitarist Mick Ronson. The remake reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart.
The Man Who Sold the World was later rediscover when Nirvana included it in their 1993 MTV Unplugged performance. The song was released as a single the following year when the MTV performance was released as an album. Nirvana’s cover went into heavy rotation on MTV and alternative rock radio introducing it to a new generation. Although David Bowie was honored by the Nirvana rendition, Bowie found himself in the odd position of having young people think he was covering Nirvana when he performed his own song.
The Man Who Sold The World by David Bowie
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
