Favorite Velvet Underground songs


I dont see them talked about a lot on here. They've got a lot of good ones.

1. Sweet Jane (in my top 10 all time)
2. Waiting For The Man
3. Heroin

Was going to list Perfect Day but I'm pretty sure that's a solo Reed song.

What Goes On
Venus in Furs
Sunday Morning
Sweet Jane
Oh Sweet Nuthin

eta: What Goes On has one of my favorite music moments of all time at 1:09 LINK although that youtube version isn't the best quality

The first minute or so is amazing. When the screech hits it loses me.

How did I forget to list Pale Blue Eyes. Easily one of my favorites from them. Love REM's cover too.

That's simply a ripoff of the Velvets' original live version
