Lou Reed was never afraid to swing for the fences.
I adore all these horrible songs. RIP Lou.
8 – The Day John Kennedy Died
Maybe this just had the misfortune of coming right after “Waves of Fear” on THE BLUE MASK. But, even with the cool guitar & bass going on here. . .ugh.
7 – What’s Good
What good’s a computerized nose?
6 – Gimme Some Good Times.
The opening, where he quotes his own old songs, is the most embarassing thing ever. Worse then when Sting did it, even.
5 – Harry’s Circumcision.
Coulda been cut.
4 – I Love You Suzanne.
3 – Pumping Blood.
Like a colored man’s dick.
2 – I Wanna Be Black.
And fuck up the Joooooooze!
1 – Edgar Allen Poe. By a country mile.
Everything about this rules. It RULES!
Bonus points! This awesome Velvet Underground 1993 atrocity.
