Good song. The whole song only has 5 chords, I can already play it guitar :)

I thought it was three chords, but then I'm only musical when I listen or *art. Is this your site? Because I really like it. Have you seen Two Smoking Barrels or some movie name? Great soundtrack for a director with only two good ones, one with Iggy. Am honored, and love the site.

Yeah d3rr and I run the site. Glad you like it!

I have not seen the movie. I really haven't listened to much Iggy music at all, but I liked this song so I'll probably check out more of it.

Iggy doesn't make a lot of songs but—now I remember—the movie was Lock, Stock and two Smoking Barrels, directed by Guy Ritchie, who was briefly married to Madonna. It was a dramedy about some bumbling British hoods.The soundtrack, with that Iggy song was really good, since then Ritchi just hasn't been the same. Probably Madonna was the cause. Iggy's other good one was China Girl, but he gave it to David Bowie to record. Anyway, it's a pleasure to meet you. I know this site will make it because there is no real competition nowadays. thanks.

I wonder if this one of those songs that Bowie "gave" to Iggy

He gave Iggy China Girl and the lyrics are just as repetitious. I saw David in Tokyo about two months before "you know." I had a twenties, hetero crush on him back in the day. Love them both. Keep on going Iggy, and you too.

In fact, I was way wrong. Iggy wrote ChinaGirl and Davy made it a hit.

Good call. Yeah I guess Iggy had this on his album like 5 years earlier. The Iggy version is good too, it's got some more screeching and wailing.

Congrats on the site. Me like. The other two are a battleground and a hatefest. Here, I feel right at home.

I let slip with one obscenity the other day, but did an edit. You two are doing a great job.
