Released: September 1977

‘Lust For Life’ hums with skid row defiance, wrapped up with a seductive jangle pop bow. Little wonder it was later co-opted by Trainspotting - Bowie and Iggy reference heroin stalwart William Burroughs and dead dealers - but aside from the rattling hedonism of the track's percussive backbone, the song is as life-affirming as a gospel track.
