"Success" is a cover song by Duran Duran, released on the album Thank You by Capitol-EMI on 4 April 1995.

About the songEdit

Written by America rock singer Iggy Pop, the original music was composed by David Bowie and guitarist Ricky Gardiner. The song was the first and only single released from Iggy Pop's 1977 album Lust For Life.

Duran Duran recorded the song for their cover album Thank You, which was an attempt to keep the peace among band members who had increasing trouble writing music together.

During the post punk days of the late 1970s, Duran Duran were the resident band at Birmingham's Rum Runner nightclub. This was a venue where Nick Rhodes would deejay for £10 a night, spinning records including Iggy Pop's that would later feature on Only After Dark.
