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.
