Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word

Song written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. Marty, Ricky and Kim Wilde performed this song at the Action for AIDS concert at Wembley Stadium in London, April 1987. A video recording of this song was released on a video called 'Stand by me'.

In 2007, Marty Wilde released a career-spanning compilation album to celebrate his 50 years in the music business. The cd, Born to Rock 'n' Roll, featured a new recording of Kim and himself singing 'Sorry Seems to Be he Hardest Word', which was released as a promotional CD-single only.

Kim about 'Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word'

It was nice to be able to sing with [Marty] at last. I know if I'd done it earlier in my career I'd have been flogged mercilessly, even more so than I have been. I'm not saying I want to be taken seriously, I don't want that at all, but I do love being in music and I'd like people to believe that. Whatever you lot think about me, I'm still around.
