Riff: Iggy and The Stooges – “Sex and Money”

Apr 30, 2013

Like swallowing razor blades/To live in this mess I’ve made/It’s something to see for sale

from Sex and Money lyrics by Iggy and The Stooges

Iggy and The Stooges expose their tired, drug-addled remains uncovered, admitting to having little left to offer outside of “sex and money” as Iggy’s insomnia serves as a jumping-off point to reflect on their infamy and spectacle. Sonically sags like the coming-and-going “nipples,” though.
