currently listening to 'after hours'
has some lovely memories haha
by a mile
Though if they'd ever recorded a proper version of "Guess I'm Falling in Love", that'd probably pip it. The two versions I've heard (a vocal-less studio take on Another View and a scrappy live recording on the box set) indicate a lost masterpiece.
'Foggy Notion' and 'I Can't Stand It' and 'What Goes On' and all the above.
All Tomorrow's Parties
my favourite song ever, so that
now my choice looks 'well gay'
but i stand by my answer...
See also: one of the best songs ever
is pretty, er, sweet
I want to cover it in an ultra droney style.
All Tomorrow's Parties for me.
i don't really like them in general.
or Sunday Morning I reckon.
The first half of European Son (especially the build-up to the smash!)
I Heard Her Call My Name
The Murder Mystery ftw
I won a copy of the book the Velvet Underground named themselves after from the Velvet Underground forum (fourth edition!). It's just this trashy sexposé paperback from the sixties, but I read it all the through anyway.
i am tireddd
i am wearyyyy
for a thousssssand yearsss.
without a doubt...
Pale Blue Eyes is also nice.
Is a fucking bad-ass motherfucker of a song!
Waiting for the Man
All Tomorrows Parties
Pale Blue Eyes
Satellite of Love
White Light/White Heat
fuck it....they're all great.
Pale Blue eyes
All tomorrows parties
Venus in furs
White Light/White heat
but it fluctuates
is complete genius.
'white light' for party times
orrrr the gift...
I really like that song. Also Pale Blue eyes, Waiting for the man and I'll be your Mirror.
reminds me of a beautifully twisted relationship I have with someone
is my second
my typing! only just realised....what a fool i am
or 'Sister Ray'.
There she goes again (I may have got this title wrong)
I'll be your mirror
or Who loves the sun?
Listening to the whole thing through is like aome sort of cleansing ritual!
or you know, Venus in Furs.
or Femme Fatale.
The first few seconds of Femme Fatale are brilliant.
the ones I skip on the debut are:
Venus In Furs
when the aliens land and ask "lemme hear the coolest muthafuckin song you got", i'll say "that'll be sister ray, mate".
Sweet Jane, Rock and Roll, Pale Blue Eyes etc are more Lou Reed solo songs than VU songs.
With Heroin you get the full works.
for "lonesome cowboy bill"?
When Lou sings about his head splitting open. Then its just a stream of guitar notes and noise, like your brain melting and pouring out fo your skull. Awesome!
and pale blue eyes
because, if anything, the world needs more noise-pop songs about drag queens getting lobotomies.
But I'd go for something like
I'm set free
or what goes on. or sister ray.
...its fantastic to dance to. Its played at a great club called National Pop League if any of you south of the border visit these homelands (no, its not a plug for the club)
and Heroin. Between those two songs I believe I can support a civil suit against VU as a causal effect on how my promising life went horribly wrong.
European Son are their two best
and Sunday Morning.
Sweet Jane, i forced as busker on Northumberland Street in Newcastle to play this at 3am with me singing. The look on that kids face.........
