The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
I heard another version of that David Bowie song you put here along with the Nirvana version. 'The Man Who Ruled The World?' Meh, I forget the whole title. Anyway a group called Ultravox covered it too. Theirs is more fast paced and techno-sounding.
I know Ultrvis well. They had a lot of success after the original singer John Foxx left and he was replaced by Midge Ure. Both JF and Lutravox are favourites of teh not-wife. I didn't realise they did a cover of teh man who sold teh world. If I remember rightly I think Midge Ure did a solo cover of teh song.
