One of Iggy’s more upbeat numbers, and despite it being a lead single, it is often overshadowed by ‘Lust for Life’ and ‘The Passenger’ due to their use in pop culture. However ‘Success’ stands on it’s own as probably the most simple, rock and roll based songs, and as one of my personal favourites. The call and response with Iggy, David Bowie, and the rest of his backing band is one of the best examples of both Pop’s ability to spontaneously improvise long stretches of lyrics and of the strong chemistry between the whole band.
