“Tonight” – Iggy Pop


From 1977’s “Lust for Life” comes Iggy’s “Tonight,” a rare gesture of warmth from the chief Stooge, even if the subject matter is admittedly grim. Later covered by David Bowie in 1984 who also named his album “Tonight” in honor of the song.

“Success” – Duran Duran

OK, I realize I may be raked over the coals for this by the true believers of the church of Iggy, but I think this is a really good cover of Iggy Pop’s “Success” done with a swinging Gary Glitter-esque beat.   From the Durannie’s hit or miss covers album “Thank You” from the 1990s.
