We Will Fall

Album: The Stooges (1969)
Play Video


  • "We Will Fall" is a 10-minute ethereal piece that is completely out of place on The Stooges' first album. It's driven by a yogic background chant and the viola of producer John Cale. The spoken word lyrics are Iggy Pop describing a night at the Chelsea Hotel waiting for his girlfriend (Nico from The Velvet Underground) to arrive.
  • The background chant is "Om Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram," though "Jai" is mispronounced as "Jah." >>
