Sunday offering: “Kicks,” by Lou Reed

Kicks


 

I know I’ve posted “Heroin.”  As far as I’m concerned, this song is much darker than “Heroin.”  Listen closely to the lyrics, and you’ll figure out what’s going on.  And it ain’t very nice.

 

Hey, man, what’s your style?  How do you get your kicks for livin’?

Sunday blog: “Heroin,” by the Velvet Underground

Velvet-underground-and-nico


I’ve been posting too many music videos lately.  How about a nice song?

 

 

Here’s the Velvet Underground, back in their earliest days, with Lou Reed singing the creepily beautiful vocals and playing lead guitar, backed by Maureen Tucker on drum, John Cale on electric viola, and Sterling Morrison on rhythm guitar.

 

 

Happy Sunday.
