Comments
Harmonically identical to My Way , because it was written by Bowie as a revenge song. He had written his own English adaptation of Comme d'habitude titled "Even a Fool Learns to Love", but it wasn't picked up by Frank Sinatra . This is also why the back cover of Hunky Dory reads "Inspired by Frankie".
