=Lust for Life is a 1977 album by Iggy Pop, his second collaboration with David Bowie following The Idiot, released earlier in the year. As well as being a critical success, it was Pop's most commercially popular album to date. The title track gained further exposure two decades later when it was featured on the soundtrack of the film Trainspotting (1996).
The album is generally considered to be more of an Iggy Pop record than the Bowie-dominated The Idiot, being less experimental musically and having more of a rock and roll flavour. However some of its themes were similarly dark, as in "The Passenger", long regarded one of Pop’s most haunting tracks, and "Tonight" and "Turn Blue", both of which dealt with heroin abuse. Balanced against this were more optimistic songs like "Success" and "Lust for Life", the latter promising “No more beating my brains / With the liquor and drugs”. The cover photo, featuring the singer's maniacal grin, was taken by Alan Kent, who also shot the cover for The Idiot.
David Bowie, Iggy Pop and engineer Colin Thurston produced the album under the pseudonym "Bewlay Bros." (name via the final track on Bowie’s Hunky Dory). Recording took place at Hansa Studios in Berlin and featured Ricky Gardiner and Carlos Alomar on guitars with Hunt and Tony Sales on drums and bass, respectively. Trivia buffs have noted that, with Bowie’s presence on keyboards and backing vocals, the band included three-quarters of the future Tin Machine line-up, missing only Reeves Gabrels; in fact it was the Sales brothers’ hard-rocking contribution to this album that led Bowie to invite them to join Tin Machine twelve years later.

The bass sound of Tony Sales is such a monstrous, in-your-face, driving, lust-for-life melodic piece of art...
It just scares you.
This is the best Iggy-without-Stooges performance by far
