‘Lust For Life’

Total Film - - Tf List - by Iggy Pop

To the propul­sive thud of Pop’s 1977 punk an­them, Danny Boyle’s Trainspot­ting can­ters to life like the rac­ing pulses of flee­ing junkies Renton (Ewan McGre­gor) and Spud (Ewen Brem­ner). All Mo­town drums and gut­ter­snipe sneer, it em­bod­ies the out­law spirit of Irvine Welsh’s text per­fectly, re­mind­ing us that Renton and co are not put-upon vic­tims, but a bois­ter­ous new breed of Brit­pop cin­ema an­ti­heroes. MEM­O­RABLE LYRIC “I got a lust for life/ Got a lust for life/Oh a lust for life” HIGH­EST CHART PLAC­ING No. 28 (UK)
