    Rest In Peace Lou Reed.

    Discussion in 'Entertainment' started by Nameless Wildflower, Oct 27, 2013.



    I absolutely adore Lou Reed's work and I love The Velvet Underground. This song is my favorite that just so happens to have my name in it. Maybe I'm a little biased. He will be missed dearly.
    What are some of your favorite songs by Lou Reed?

    'Perfect day' is my favorite song by Lou Reed. I'm not a huge fan of his later stuff, but ... wow am I depressed by this.

    "Perfect Day" for sure. Great song. "Walk on the Wild Side" is another good one. Man, he will be missed. RIP.

    if you asked me an hour ago to name 5 of his songs I'd have struggled. Now they're all coming back. Rip Lou, gonna go make a mixed cd for the car!

    everyone together - what do the coloured girls say?

    Sad news indeed. That 60-70s lifestyle caught up with him. I guessed hep C led to the liver transplant before I looked.
    I agree with the quote and will add, I liked the sound of his vocals, they were unique. It never crossed my mind they lacked range.

    This is so sad :(

    I adore the Velvet Underground. When I was a teenager, I was borderline obsessed with Lou Reed and Nico (among other awesome artists of the time), and lamented the fact I was born a few decades too late :( For some reason I haven't listened to them in a while though. Only two songs have prevailed: All Tomorrow's Parties and Pale Blue Eyes.

    To be honest, when it comes to Reed's solo stuff, I was more into the stories he told instead of the music.

    The Metallica-Lou Reed collaboration was something horrible, but it's cool they ventured to less trodden avenues with their music. It was like mixing ice cream and pizza. Some love it, but I prefer to eat them separately thank you very much.

    I must admit, the Metallica - Lou Reed collaboration was exactly what I had in mind when I said I was not a fan of his 'later stuff'. But still, aside from that, my god was Lou Reed good. He'll be missed.

    Unfortunately, my main experience of Lou Reed stems from Lulu, but I understand he was a great figure, and unfortunately it's only after his death that now I'm now taking a more serious interest is his early work.
