Weekend Video - Lou Reed




I'm a sucker for violins, cellos, etc. playing behind a song. So when I heard this performance by Lou Reed on a recent David Letterman show it jolted me out of my dozy state into one of rapture. If you don't like slow songs, I understand, and I'll make up for it with something more upbeat next time.

Happy pre-Christmas weekend.

Lou can't sing anymore - never was much good, but it didn't matter when he was young. Now he sounds even worse than Keith Richards, which is saying something ...

LOVE it! "Waterfalls" by Jimi Hendrix has the same effect to me, in comparison to his other "upbeat" songs.

Oh..I probably won't be back to your blog until 2009, so I wish you a Happy, Bright, Magical, Holiday Season!
