Iggy Pop – Lust For Life – Live 1977


Recorded at a concert in Manchester, 1977.

“Lust for Life” is a 1977 song performed by Iggy Pop, featured on the album Lust for Life. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked it #147 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Co-written by Iggy Pop and David Bowie, Bowie providing the music (written on a ukelele), and Pop the lyrics, the song is known for its opening drumbeat (played by Hunt Sales). The drumbeat has since been imitated in numerous songs, including “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” by Jet, “Selfish Jean” by Travis, and “Town Called Malice” by The Jam; however, Sales’s use of the drumbeat was not original, as it was itself derived from “You Can’t Hurry Love”, recorded in 1966 by The Supremes.
