The Man Who Sold The World covered in many different ways…

The Man Who Sold The World is one of the hundreds of hits by David Bowie.

It’s the title track of Bowie’s third album and was released in the U.S in November 1970 and in the U.K in April 1971.

The song was covered by a few artists including; Lulu (who had a U.K No. 3 hit with her 1974 version), Midge Ure in 1982 and Nirvana in 1993 on MTV Unplugged.

I’ve been listening to Bowie a lot recently and spoke about Nirvana with a cab driver a few weeks ago – coincidence or fate, I don’t know – put one and one together and you get this gem and I wanted to share it with you all.

Have a look and listen to David Bowie perform The Man Who Sold The World Live at the Beeb back in 2000 and Nirvana’s cover on MTV Unplugged, below.
