3735. “Some Weird Sin” by Iggy Pop

Album cover video:

“Some Weird Sin” is something of a paean to being an outsider. While it wasn’t a single or a hit, it did have a certain amount of influence, especially among the ’77 punk rock scene according to AllMusic’s Dave Thompson.

When I listen to it, it suffers a bit because I am already hearing the next track from Lust for Life – “The Passenger” – in my head and am thinking of skipping ahead. Good song, though, and reminiscent of some of Bowie’s work on Heroes. I hear echos of it in “Joe The Lion,” but that could just be my brain forcing one song on top of another.
