    She wants to know: Why she's given half her life up for people she hates now? She's not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska, Between worlds so the people ask her, Cos it's all in her mind...(She put her fist through the window pane; it was such a Funny feeling) It's so cold in Alaska...

    "It's so cold in Alaska". The Velvets are the best, and this is as good as it gets.

    DAT Viola. I mean seriously, this arrangement is so subtile.The background vocals, Lou's bittersweet lead vocal, the rhythm guitar, these subtile drums (seriously i didn't recognize them till now), the glockenspiel, the lead guitar...this melody is so charming. And this with such a quality that you can even hear the guitar pick strumm the guitar slightly (usually that shouldn't be in the song! at least from studio record guy's POV). Face it - the quality is not the best. But this makes it even greater. And Lou's songwriting qualities. And then the reprise - this viola! It's like a lightflash from the sun glimpsing in your eye while you face the world. By the way - Popular tag for this song: "Women saying things to Lou reed" - made my day! Though this is my favourite one of the "xxx says" songs. (Lou did a lot of them...Lisa says, Stephanie says, Candy says, Caroline says...this old dandy!) One of my favourite songs ever. SO beautiful.
