Riff: Iggy and The Stooges – “Unfriendly World”

Apr 30, 2013

An old magazine/Go and wrap it in between/Pages yellowing like me/Will I ever be free?

from Unfriendly World lyrics by Iggy and The Stooges

Don’t fight it, Stooges – the slow-groove slide-guitar with deep bass vocal introspection really kills for you guys. These sounds also give the sepia taste of “yellowed pages” as Iggy goes on nostalgia overload, pining to leave “sickening, unfriendly world” of “fame and fortune” behind; [LISTEN].
