17. ‘The Passenger’ by Iggy PopThe Passenger

Get into the car / We’ll be the passenger / We’ll see the stars that shine so bright / Stars made for us tonight /And everything is made for you and me / ‘Cause it just belongs to you and me / So let’s take a ride and see what’s mine. ‘The Passenger’ is the stand-out track from Iggy Pop’s sophomore Lust For Life LP. Pop croons seductively about the late-night drive over the repetitive guitar lick of Rick Gardiner and a forceful drum and cymbal attack, before David Bowie joins the fray for the memorable chorus. A thrilling back-seat ride with the original rock ‘n’ roll rebel. Available on: Iggy Pop Lust For Life (RCA, 1977).
