R.I.P. Lou Reed (1924 - 2013)

Lou Reed passed away yesterday. Obviously The Velvet Underground had a huge impact on rock musicians far and wide. Brian Eno famously said "The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band." You can read plenty of articles about his life and death here, here, or any number of other places, so I'll just post a few of my favorite songs.

What I assume is the most well-known Velvet Underground song

 Another favorite of mine

And because I'll sneak M. Ward in any place I can... M. Ward covering "Pale Blue Eyes"

And the first Lou Reed song I remember hearing. I remember my parents playing this song in the car when I was young, which in hindsight is kinda weird...
