How does Reed manage to get away from with writing a simple song without being simpleminded ? ! ? ! M i n i m a l in its arrangement with a lead, and rhythm guitars and a tambourine percussion and his lone vocals signing straightforw a r d declarative sentiments. Far from sentimental, it almost seems aloof! Thank you Lou for killing all the hippies!

When I listen I this radio station I feel like a college girl in California who goes for walks at the park and spends all day painting her apartment walls, watching Netflix and eating a lot of cheese balls. I feel the future I want in this music.

This feels so good to listen to. It makes me feel fuzzy and amazing.

A stupid heroin junkie singing about an affair, that did not last, and will never happen again. The guitar is beautiful, but some things just do not work out.

Just wonderful. Most of it conveys the emotions I've felt (and probably plenty of peoples' as well), except the "Pale Blue Eyes" part. I haven't really been interested in many people with pale blue eyes. Come to think of it, the amount of people I've been interested in amounts to two. But, "Pale Brown Eyes" wouldn't seem to go right with this song.

Patti Smith used this in her setlist in 1978. Lenny Kaye's version of John Cale's solo is great.

Beautiful song. Purely about love, without being cheesy. Just, so real.
