Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

"What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word
It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd"
– Joe Cocker (well technically Elton John who is the composer of the song, arg)

The saxophone makes the song slightly dated to my ears but Joe Cocker's husky voice and quirky arm movements – not without reminding me of those of Radiohead's singer Thom Yorke – still manage to move me.
