Sunday Song Lyric:

The VC may have a new blog platform, but I thought it was a good day for a classic song lyric.  David Bowie is among my favorite artists and songwriters of all time, and “The Man Who Sold the World” is among my favorite Bowie songs, even if the original studio version is a bit off.   The song begins:

We passed upon the stair
We spoke of what 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

Here are the song, the  full lyrics and a live version from a few years back.  (I’ve always preferred live versions – I particularly enjoyed hearing this song at a 1995 concert when Bowie was touring with Nine Inch Nails.)
