“Your high class games of sorrow”
Originally released on October 12th 1973, Sorrow was Bowie’s inimitable take on The Merseybeats’ version of the song originally released by The McCoys.
The single reached #3 in the UK, staying in the charts for 15 weeks, and was the perfect taster for Bowie’s upcoming covers album, the too frequently underappreciated, Pin Ups.
Bowie’s version is an exceptional interpretation of a fine song, so successful in its execution that it has become THE definitive version.
