Ryuichi Sakamoto & Iggy Pop - Risky

I have always loved Risky and it should have been a hit, in my humble opinion. Maybe someone should do a cover. Iggy does a great job of being the crooner on this track, I don't know if he was trying to do his version of Sinatra or just listening to some of his buddy David Bowie for inspiration, but it works. Built on a simple drum pattern with atmospheric keyboards and a little guitar this is a great late night ballad. Don't these guys look like the romantic type to you?

Born in a corporate dungeon
Where people are cheated of life
I knew I could never stay home
As you lie in the dark
With your pink dress on
You look risky lovely risky lovely
Child of the whispering skies
Risky that's your name.......

I saw a 12" vinyl version of this used a couple of months ago and now I wish I had bought it.

Buy it here.
