|Adam Faith singles chronology|
"Poor Me" was released when the previous single, "What Do You Want?", was still at number two in the UK Singles Chart. The song was originally rejected by several music publishers in its original incarnation as "Poor Man". It was felt by some that Faith and Barry contrived a backing and singing style that leaned too heavily on the style of Buddy Holly, and "Poor Me" was likened to his hit single "Heartbeat".
Faith made a guest-appearance on the Beverley Sisters' Television Show on 25 January 1960, performing this song.
