Iggy Pop – Pumpin’ for Jill (1981)

In the winter of 1981/82, the two best songs of all time were “Temptation” by New Order (the 12″ version) and “Pumpin’ for Jill” by Iggy Pop from his wildly underrated “Party” LP.

Still remember hearing this for the first time on the school bus – unparalleled genius!

And, apparently, all about a chap who worked at a petrol station and enjoyed ensuring that his customers’ fuel tanks were properly filled…… I think.

You don’t get that sort of customer service outside of the excellent folk who keep Pret a Manger going these days.
