The Passenger è un successo di Iggy Pop del 1977, scritto assieme al compositore scozzese Ricky Gardiner e pubblicato con l’album Lust For Life dello stesso anno. Non ne fu promosso il singolo, ma fu pubblicato come B-side dell’unico estratto “Success”.
Il testo fa riferimento al personaggio del “punk outcast”, ovvero il punk che si sente alienato dalla società; i backing vocals del ritornello sono cantati da David Bowie.

Am F C G I am the passenger Am F C E I ride and I ride Am F C G I ride through the city's backsides Am F C E I see the stars come out of the sky Yeah, they're bright in a hollow sky You know it looks so good tonight I am the passenger I stay under glass I look through my window so bright I see the stars come out tonight I see the bright and hollow sky Over the city's a rip in the sky And everything looks good tonight Singin' la la la la lalalala... Get into the car We'll be the passenger We'll ride through the city tonight We'll See the city's ripped backsides We'll see the bright and hollow sky We'll see the stars that shine so bright The sky was made for us tonight Oh the passenger How how he rides Oh the passenger He rides and he rides He looks through his window What does he see? He sees the stars and hollow sky He see the stars come out tonight He sees the city's ripped backsides He sees the winding ocean drive And everything was made for you and me All of it was made for you and me 'cause it just belongs to you and me So let's take a ride and see what's mine Singing... la la la la lalalala... Oh, the passenger He rides and he rides He sees things from under glass He looks through his window's eye He sees the things he knows are his He sees the bright and hollow sky He sees the city asleep at night He sees the stars are out tonight And all of it is yours and mine And all of it is yours and mine So let's ride and ride and ride and ride... Singing... la la la la lalalala... [Iggy Pop]
