I recently heard Nirvana Unplugged after some time of not listening to it.  I didn’t notice before how beautiful The Man Who Sold the World is…

We passed upon the stair, we spoke in 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 a foreign land, for years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazeless stare, we walked a million hills
I must have died alone, a long long time ago

Who knows? Not me
I 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

Here is the original David Bowie version:

Here is Nirvana’s cover:  I sorta like Kurt’s voice.  Although you have to pay homage to David Bowie for writing such a great song.
