Permit me to offer a rival favorite:

When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you're twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands 'cause I see you


Some people they like to go out dancing
And other peoples they have to work
And there's even some evil mothers
Well they're gonna tell you that everything is just dirt
You know that women never really faint
And that villains always blink their eyes
And that children are the only ones who blush
And that life is just to die
But anyone who ever had a heart
They wouldn't turn around and break it
And anyone who ever played a part
They wouldn't turn around and hate it

The most sympathetic song I can think of. He's gone into the infinite Sister Ray, which is probably....fun?


I'll go with:

I'm only young once
I want to taste it all and have fun
I have no real feelings in my soul
Where most have passion I got a hole
I really got nobody else

I want lovers like the rain
So many of them, so much the same
You say you love me, I know it's true
But I, I, I don't love you

I have the drive
I got the scope
If I, if I, if I, could I give you a rope

Why, why, why
Do I cheat on thee
Oh why, do I cheat on me
Why do I cheat on myself
Well I got nobody else


I went straight to the Street Hassle album too when I heard the news.


So, here's my semi-recent Lou in his Dotage / Cinema story:

We ended up sitting directly in front of Lou and Laurie, two rows ahead, at Film Forum for an evening show with the house about half full.

Every twenty minutes or so, Lou would fall asleep and start loudly snoring. At which point Laurie would loudly say, "Wake up, you're snoring." Lou would wake up, and we could pay attention to the movie again until the next twenty minute snore/wake up episode.

Of course, it kinda killed the movie. And, of course, we could've moved, should we have wanted too. But it was Lou fucking Reed, and Laurie was trying to be a good cinema citizen. So we didn't move, and it was a nice night out at the movies.

The full-on Lou Is Your Grandpa at the movies experience. Good stuff.
