“Sorrow” is a song first recorded by the McCoys in 1965 and released as the B-side to their cover of “Fever“. It became a big hit in the United Kingdom in a version by the Merseys, reaching number 4 on the UK chart on 28 April 1966. A line from the song – “With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue” – is used in the Beatles song “It’s All Too Much” which was featured on their 1969 album Yellow Submarine. David Bowie’s remake of “Sorrow”, recorded in July 1973 at Château d’Hérouville, Hérouville, France, was the only single released in the UK from his Pin Ups covers album, reaching No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart, and staying in the charts for 15 weeks. It was also Bowie’s first number one hit single in Australia, where it topped the charts for two weeks in February 1974.
