Union City, Indiana's favourite sons The McCoys, notable for recording what I consider the best take on the Dorothy "Sloopy" Sloop story (Hang On, Sloopy) wrote Sorrow, which became a #4 hit for England's The Merseys, was covered by David Bowie on his Pin-Ups album, and, if my ears are correct, influenced Billy Bragg's A New England and Taken by Trees' Too Young TTA Way. (Yes, Goldkicks is as much for pedantic music lovers as it is for intellectual property lawyers.)
