Song Of The Day - "Funtime" by Iggy Pop

Song Of The Day - "Funtime" by Iggy Pop from the album "The Idiot"

"FUN! We want some! We want some!" Words to live by from the Iggster with an assist from David Bowie.  Bowie came along to offer a little career rehab for Iggy whilst meanwhile rehabbing his own addictions of the time.  Recorded at their getaway retreat in Hansa, Germany, this album was sandwiched in between the recording of Bowie's "Low" and "Heroes."  This track sounded modern at the time of its release back in 1977 and it still does today, capturing the Teutonic Kraftwerk-inspired sound of Germany and mixing it up with the drug-fueled exuberance of a late-'70s night on the town clubbing.
