T. Nathan Roane - SongStealer - 04 - The Man Who Sold the World

David Bowie, Nirvana

Written by David Bowie (1970), I'd not heard The Man Who Sold the World until covered by Nirvana (1993). Here with Erik Redford dueling himself on violins and viola, I've given it more gypsy flavor, especially at the closing. Still unsure of the meaning of Bowie's lyrics, I yet tried singing them convincingly.
