    What's your favorite Lou Reed song? (including Velvet Underground etc.)

    I expect to see plenty of "Satellite of Love"s, "Pale Blue Eyes"s, and "Walk on the Wild Side"s, but I think I'm going to say "Femme Fatale".

    Lou Reed solo: Perfect Day
    VU: After Hours
  4. junkmanserenade

    Where are your friends tonight?

    Perfect Day for solo, Heroin for VU. Those might be the cliche answers, but for good reason.
  5. Anti-Counter-Culture


    Not nearly as well-versed in Reed's solo career or Velvet Underground as I'd like to be, but for now I'll go with...

    Solo: "Andy's Chest"
    VU: "Heroin"

    Fuckin' hell, Berlin is incredible. I feel like only break it out once every other year, but when I do...

    My mom rode in my car today to take my brother to school and when I drove it I noticed the velvet underground and Nico CD was on "Heroin" so I can only wonder what she thought about it at 6 am

    Gave Street Hassle a first listen yesterday and it's a really good record. Very ambitious but still loose and live.

    Animal Serenade coming to vinyl on Record Store Day 2018 inspired me to dive into that album and Ecstasy

    incredibly strong stuff tbh, dunno why these weren't heralded more as late career resurgences for him

    Rock n Roll Animal is just such a special record. Hunter and Wagner have such an incredible chemistry, as good as any guitar duo in rock, and hearing all these incredible songs performed in the arena-filling, grandiose style they deserve just never gets old for me.

    The Transformer episode of Classic Albums is really such an essential watch. You realize what a magic, fleeting moment they caught.

    I know I'm the only one bumping this but:

    Hot damn is The Blue Mask fantastic. Not sure he ever played with a more sympathetic pair than Quine and Saunders.

    I'm making an effort to pace myself with his career cause I don't want to rip through his whole career in a few years. I need to know there's more Lou on the horizon for me.

    I've started reading Victor Bockris' Transformer biography and it's fascinating thusfar.

    I just bought that too, excited to dig in after watching a bunch of hilariously antagonistic interviews

    Transformer is my favorite album by him. Underrated musician.

    Seriously. For all the love The Velvet Underground gets, it still seems like his solo work flies a little under the radar. Especially stuff like The Blue Mask and Coney Island Baby
