This is a Lou Reed song done by Bowie, NOT written by Bowie. He does it justice for sure, but I'm not sure why Pandora doesn't credit Reed!

Arguably better than the Velvet Underground original, and I LOVE the original.

I prefer Bowie's cover of Iggy Pop's China Girl.

Bowies at the Beeb CD is probably one of the best recordings I've found in 34 years. Just raw, straight up, and in your face. Nothing fake, made up, no studio tricks, no pro tools, just raw instruments and the ever talented Bowie at his best.

Lou Reed hands down.

Never heard this version before. Nice find.

I never heard Bowie's version of "I'm Waiting for the Man" before today. Dare I say, better than Velvet Underground' s ? Is that blasphemy?

Dang best version of "I'm waiting for the man" I have ever heard. Even better than Lou's.

I like the music of the rest of the Velvet Underground behind this song a bit better, but I do have to agree that having the Bowie twist on it is nice. Very good cover.

I love how straight he does his Lou Reed cover. Absolutely respectful. Just leave it the way it is. Let anything else come through inflection, alone.
