One of a kind song. Stuck in my head the first time it played. Years later and it has only gotten better. Now a classic, just the background music makes me want to go do da do da do do ...........a l s o makes me think of my older brother when he learned to play the sax.

I think we should force Sean to chug Lou Reed's bong water as a penance for his sin.

Dean B. here on Dave's computer . This is a great song . Love the interaction between the upright bass and the electric bass. Very cool.

Sean- You are an idiot. If you think the fore fathers of everything that is cool sounding today are vapid, and that Frank Zappa would have done a better job at Lou Reed song you are truly stupid. You got a lot to learn pal. By the way, if you think drugs were only popular in the late 60's and 70's then you are even more stupid than I thought. Go listen to ,what is it...? Zappa.

oh yeah, lou is laughing, he's cooler than most.

How has this one not made it onto my 70's and 80's station until now? I don't get that.

I think it's great!

This song is kinda' bullshit. I get it, and I get that Lou was ahead of his time, but the time he was ahead of was a douche-y, derisive, coked-out indie extravaganza of pretension. There aint much genuine about Lou Reed. I feel like he is laughing at me for never being able to be as cool as he. The song is easy to listen to and cute, but if you listen closer, it's a vapid, snark-y, posturing song that wants to be written by Zappa, but sounds like the Stones... who I f**king hate.

David is right, but this song is still good.

If you like this and you don't know the Velvets you need to dig deeper.
Start with the '69 live album. Tracks like Sweet Jane, Rock and Roll, Heroin etc.

I'm sorry, I never understood all the fuss. Velvet Underground has better stuff, but they come off as a one-hit wonder because this song is the only thing people have heard.

one of a kind, great song.

This is not one of the finest songs ever. It is THE finest song ever created.

I am also surprised at the lack of responses here. One of the finest pieces of music ever created!

No comments, really? Extremely vulgar, yet excellent song.
