Song of the Day: Iggy Pop – “China Girl”

On this day 40 years ago, Iggy Pop released his solo debut The Idiot, which was written in large part with David Bowie. This track of course became a hit for Bowie in 1983, but it first appeared on this album. This version rocks a bit more than Bowie’s Nile Rodgers-produced pop version, although I like the vocals better on Bowie’s version. It’s said to be about Vietnamese woman Kuelan Nguyen, who Pop had eyes for at the time.
