Nirvana, The Man Who Sold the World. (Cover of 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 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
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.

 

David Bowie was interviewed by Mary Anne Hobbs and was asked about the song. He commented: “I guess I wrote it because there was a part of myself that I was looking for. Maybe now that I feel more comfortable with the way that I live my life and my mental state and my spiritual state whatever, maybe I feel there’s some kind of unity now. That song for me always exemplified kind of how you feel when you’re young, when you know that there’s a piece of yourself that you haven’t really put together yet. You have this great searching, this great need to find out who you really are.”

Kurt Cobain dresses the “man who sold the world” in the best way. His life, his career, his thinking, his existence. Kurt Cobain has sold the world and has become legend.
