I was never too enthralled with Iggy Pop's catalog growing up, but even I can admit when he hits one out of the park. "The Passenger" is a traveling song (upbeat and full of motion) that is equal parts goofy and spooky, with Iggy's over-the-top inflections belting out simple lyrics to the accompaniment of cow bells and noisemakers that contrast nicely with a rich full echo and simple guitar that melts away to reveal a very pain-filled revelry that will send shivers down your spine.

In short, I like it.

There might be edgier versions out there, but this filled a hole in my collection. He might not have been making Commercial S***, as one of his albums was called, but it's ironic this hit is making it into mainstream ads for movies and rum (you know which ones).

I downloaded this because my band was considering covering it. We didn't but it is a great great! It is simple but that simplicity gives it likability. A great track for riding around in the car.

For you old schoolers to hear a little Iggy on the "adult" beverage commercial brings back some good memories... it's a fun song and worth $.89c

I first heard this in a commercial. I don't know of other versions, but this one is the one I heard and I enjoyed it. A good buy.

This is the perfect addition to any road trip playlist. It's pretty laid back and all about cruising around town after hours.
