Try and find a current song writer that even belongs in a conversation with lou reed. Where have all these types gone? There might be room for reznor and keenan. That's it.

Morphine does a rendition of this song and made it theirs as far as "candy says"......n o t h i n g like originals though it makes you feel some how connected to something larger. When you stumble on to them.

I did not know Yule sang lead in Candy Says. I'll give him more credit now, but his backup vocals were weak on a couple VU songs. Regardless, I prefer the post-Cale VU era. The music is better.

Perhaps equalled by "Pale Blue Eyes", another gem of perfection from this very same same album.

I own over 700 CDs and I am hard-pressed to find a finer song than this one in my collection. Truly a perfect song.
