  • I love Lou Reed with all my heart, but I haven't listen to even the 10th part of his discography (cause I listen music by albums, and I get bored at the third track (not because they are boring, but because I listen superficially)). And it seems to me that I like the least loved Lou Reed albums. I mean I adore LULU! So I would like to ask old hardcore fans of Lou Reed, to recommend me songs that are close to their heart. Not best known ones, but songs that did something to them. For example, I first heard Ride Sally Ride, after a very painful break up, and listening to this song made me understand her and eased my pain. I think that there are a lot of songs like this in Lou's discography, and we walk past them because we are not in the right state of mind. So if you wanna share with me songs and your experience with them, please do it, I would really like to hear them.
