Great discussions. Don't forget it was a recorded session for Transpotting 2. The plot of the movie was more and less the you can't do that part. 20 years later: what has changed and what not. Guess the song would have been a much better fit on the soundtrack than a stand alone EP.

the headline of the upcoming Q magazine says "Iggy Pop joins Underworld" and my gut reaction was 'i hope not!' (yes, i know what they mean by it)

Was watching Wimbledon coverage on the BBC on Monday and they did a little focus on Roger Federer; they used Bells & Circles as the music bed, The "sunlight on my wings" bit was used to glorify Rogers' admittedly glorious career/ability.

You could hear bits of Iggy in the background too, so I guess the BBC haven't been sent an instrumental. Anyone holding their breath for an Iggy-free instrumental may want to um, manage their expectations.
Must say the track has really grown on me since its release. I like Iggy (Post Pop Depression was the best Rock album of 2016) but some of the lyrics do feel a bit incongruous. I remember smoking on airplanes from when I was a very small boy. If you were in the non-smoking section, you were still effectively smoking.

New lyric suggestion: inflicting carcinogenic fumes on people forced to sit in the same metal tube as you for many hours? You can't do that.




EDIT: Oh I've just read this on the EP thread:

So, those of you who wanted the tracks without Iggy Pop may be interested in that.
Well I guess that's good news for some of y'all.

A friend happened to post this elsewhere. The glory days Iggy fondly recalls, when you could bully young women without consequences because you’re rich and famous (and white). Alas, what a sterile and repressive society we’ve become.
