37 years ago Iggy Pop released his second solo album, Lust For Life, co-produced by David Bowie.
Written by Bowie (the mastermind behind Lust for Life AND Iggy’s previous album, The Idiot) this is my personal favorite tune of this album. Enjoy!
favourite right now, might post on facebook haha
We want people with college degrees, drug use experience and STD’s.
People with open-minded philosophies, come hug California trees.
"No longer svelte, they gotta punch new holes in the Bible belt"

Or do the ends justify themselves?
I never wanted to hurt you.
I didn’t plan to desert you.
I couldn’t possibly express how much I care.
So turn your back on me.
Come on turn your back on me.
To survive turn your back on me.
We’re the same as far as I can see,
So come on turn your back on me.
Well I’m low on motivation
But I’m high enough on hope
Gonna do it all for Jesus
'Till I ain't got no more dope
Lord Have Mercy, Glory Be.
Well I’m getting high for Jesus
'Cause he got so low for me
Wild Billy Childish And The Musicians Of The British Empire - Joe Strummer’s Grave
Plug in your iPod and sing along with me
I saw your daughter getting gang-fucked on MTV
It’s the middle of the night and not a policeman in sight
Get your knives out, baby, come on, let’s fight
Cool Britannia, Jesus saves
Rupert Murdoch rules the waves
Richard Branson doesn’t shave
And Joe Strummer’s spinning in his grave
