Iggy Pop – Lust for life


Hace tiempo que no cuelgo algún temazo, así que aquí van dos de Iggy Pop, una de las figuras más destacadas e innovadoras dentro del punk rock y sus variantes.

Esta primera canción, del mismo nombre que el disco, Lust for life, quizá os suene por la banda sonora de Trainspotting, peliculón donde los haya.

Here comes Johnny Yen again
With the liquor and drugs
And a flesh machine
He’s gonna do another strip tease

Hey man, where’d you get that lotion?
I’ve been hurting since I bought the gimmick
About something called love
Yeah, something called love
Well, that’s like hypnotising chickens

Well, I’m just a modern guy
Of course, I’ve had it in the ear before
‘Cause of a lust for life
‘Cause of a lust for life

I’m worth a million in prizes
With my torture film
Drive a G.T.O.
Wear a uniform
All on government loan

I’m worth a million in prizes
Yeah, I’m through with sleeping on the sidewalk
No more beating my brains
No more beating my brains
With the liquor and drugs
With the liquor and drugs

Chorus
Well, I’m just a modern guy
Of course, I’ve had it in my ear before
‘Cause, of a lust for life (lust for life)
‘Cause of a lust for life (lust for life, oooo)
I’ve got a lust for life (oooh)
Got a lust for life (oooh)
Oh, a lust for life (oooh)
Oh, a lust for life (oooh)
A lust for life (oooh)
I got a lust for life (oooh)
Got a lust for life

Well, I’m just a modern guy
Of course, I’ve had it in my ear before
‘Cause I’ve a lust for life
‘Cause I’ve a lust for life.

Well, here comes Johnny Yen again
With the liquor and drugs
And a flesh machine
I know he’s gonna do another strip tease

Hey man, where’d ya get that lotion?
Your skin starts itching once you buy the gimmick
About something called love
Oh Love, love, love
Well, that’s like hypnotising chickens.

Chorus

Un personaje curioso. No parece tener mucho que ver la felicidad que irradia en la portada del disco con su expresión y pose en la siguiente imagen…

Os dejo con esta estampa y con el segundo temazo que quería poneros: The Passenger, que ha sido el que ha amenizado profundamente unos minutillos de mi paseo de vuelta de la universidad.

Además, la canción aparece acompañada de un video-montaje bastante curioso. Podéis ver en la descripción de youtube, al desprender la pestaña, la lista de películas en las que se ha basado el autor para elegir y utilizar las escenas editadas.

I am the passenger
And I ride and I ride
I ride through the city’s backsides
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, they’re bright in a hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight

I am the passenger
I stay under glass
I look through my window so bright
I see the stars come out tonight
I see the bright and hollow sky
Over the city’s a rip in the sky
And everything looks good tonight
Singin’ la la la la lalalala…

Get into the car
We’ll be the passenger
We’ll ride through the city tonight
We’ll See the city’s ripped backsides
We’ll see the bright and hollow sky
We’ll see the stars that shine so bright
The sky was made for us tonight

Oh the passenger
How how he rides
Oh the passenger
He rides and he rides
He looks through his window
What does he see?
He sees the stars and hollow sky
He see the stars come out tonight
He sees the city’s ripped backsides
He sees the winding ocean drive
And everything was made for you and me
All of it was made for you and me
‘cause it just belongs to you and me
So let’s take a ride and see what’s mine
Singing… la la la la lalalala…

Oh, the passenger
He rides and he rides
He sees things from under glass
He looks through his window’s eye
He sees the things he knows are his
He sees the bright and hollow sky
He sees the city asleep at night
He sees the stars are out tonight
And all of it is yours and mine
And all of it is yours and mine
So let’s ride and ride and ride and ride…
Singing… la la la la lalalala…

    Temazo donde los haya, bueno, en general la banda sonora de esa peli me gusta, aunque los temas electrónicos pueden ser un poco repetitivos…la peli también me encanta 🙂
    La otra canción es otro gran tema de este hombre, personaje que para ser sincera siempre me ha dado pelín de grima xD
