“Hey, you know what, you can call me Jim. I mean, ya know, my friends call me Jim, Jimmy, or Iggy, or Jiggy. Call me J… call me Iggy, call me Iggy.”
“Okay, alright, which ever way you’re comfortable, I’ll go either way. Jim or Iggy…”
“Iggy… you call me Iggy.”
“Look I’m sorry I’m late Jim…”
Taken from Jim Jarmusch’s short film Coffee & Cigarettes: Somewhere in California, the start of an awkward but amazing scene between Iggy Pop and Tom Waits. Yes, Iggy Pop is our Friday track this week. Some consider the innovator of punk rock, some might not. Whatever you think, his 1973 album with the Stooges Raw Power surely has made its mark in punk rock history and will stay put forever. That is the album in which our Friday track comes from. So sit and back enjoy the sweet sounds of ‘I Need Somebody’.
