GettyImages-477990713_NEW_ORDER_IGGY_POP_1000It’s almost perfect watching Iggy Pop perform She’s Lost Control at the 50th anniversary concert of new York’s Carnegie Hall – the song was initially sung by Ian Curtis singing that Iggy baritone and tapping into the inner darkness of the Stooges and here we are decades later watching Iggy do Ian Curtis – and it sounds fantastic. Iggy has been surfing  career high since last year’s album and now there is this – someone get this into a studio and get iggy defining this song…

  1. Agree with the previous comment – can’t believe that New Order could do the song so badly and Iggy’s contribution does nothing for it

  2. Great version – Iggy sounds fantastic and it’s sung in the way that ian Curtis intended. Hope they get in the studio and record it.

  3. Ian would of loved this .. seeing iggy singing with Bernard could you image iggy n Ian on stage… it would be awesome

  4. If She’s Lost Control is now ‘She’s Lost Control Again’, is Love Will Tear Us Apart, Love Will Tear Us Apart Again? Or am I being a bit pedantic?
