Όχι από τα πιο γνωστά τραγούδια του, αλλά από τα καλύτερα της περιόδου… Το New Values ήταν το πρώτο σόλο άλμπουμ του Iggy χωρίς βοήθεια απ’ τον Bowie.


Not one of his best-known songs, but one of the best from this era… New Values is Iggy’s first solo album without Bowie on his side.

❝ Oh baby, what a place to be
In the service of the bourgeoisie
Where can my believers be
I want to jump into the endless sea
Oh, oh the endless sea
Oh, oh the endless sea
I want to jump into the endless sea
Let it wash all over me
Above us is a dirty sky
Full of youths and liquors
A little girl, a little guy
This air can’t get much thicker
Oh, oh the endless sea
Oh, oh the endless sea
Oh, oh the endless sea
Let it wash all over me
And when you’re tight for the rent
You think you’re gonna break
But you know it’s no damn good
Just one more phony on the take
You better go home, buddy
I really think,
You better go home, buddy
You better go home, buddy
The endless sea ❞

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
