iggy pop – the passenger

“The Passenger” was recorded and released by Iggy Pop on the Lust for Life album in 1977. The lyrics, written by Iggy Pop allegedly aboard Berlin’s S-Bahn, have been interpreted as embodying the nomadic spirit of the punk outcast. Guitarist Ricky Gardiner composed the music. While it possesses a distinctive riff, “The Passenger” is perhaps most recognizable by its chorus, on which David Bowie sings back-up.
