Send Iggy Pop an e-card for his 60th!

Posted on

So, apparently, some German guy has set up a site for you to send godfather of punk Iggy Pop an e-card for his birthday. (The Stooge turns 60 on Saturday, April, 21.) Me? I just wrote him a song. And a-one, a-two, a-three…

“Ig’s Still 59”
Sung to the tune of the Stooges’ “1969”
(You can sing along with Iggy via the clip below. Warning: there’s some NSFW language in the video.)

Well Ig’s still 59 okay
On tour across the USA
Saturday’s another year for the aging Stooge
Another year for Robert Smith too
Saturday’s another year for the aging Stooge
Another year for Robert Smith too

In 1968 he was 21
He didn’t have a lot of fun
And now he’s gonna be 60 dude
He say oh my and a woo hoo
And now he’s gonna be 60 dude
He say oh my and a woo hoo

Well he’s still 59 okay
On tour across the USA
Saturday’s another year for the aging Stooge
Another year for Robert Smith too

Ig’s still 59
Ig’s still 59
Ig’s still 59 baby
Ig’s still 59 baby
