I think that more people need to be aware of Lou Reed and Velvet Underground. I've only just started really getting into them.
Not the greatest example of Lou Reed's creativity but a great piece of music, from David Lynch's 'Lost Highway' OST. The original was by Ben E King and The Drifters. I think this is one of those rare occasions where a cover is better than the original.
By the way, happy 70th birthday John Lennon, and my respects go out to Yoko Ono, a true Real Music fan!
