Lou Reed

Post  Guest on Fri Sep 02, 2011 7:51 pm

This is from the VU period.



I wish he had recorded more songs in this style because I like it.

It seems to me that when he sings "I" he means "I".



From "Magic & Loss", an album that deals with death much.

^ it sounds very eighties to be by Lou Reed, no?
I don't like fretless basses as much as he seems to like them

I read something too. But I think I heard Andy saying that he's not good live these days Question

And did Blue Moon said that he saw him live with the vu, or even before? or did I dream it?

that wasn't a favourite or anything, i just found it on the spur of the moment


Yes, i think andy did say that. i am sure when he sees the title of this thread, he will say something.

not sure about Moony.

i have been listening to his music since i was a teenager.

I'm not a fan of his 70's albums but I do like Perfect Day very much. It's nice to hear those 1998 versions. Satellite of Love has a more melancholic touch there... thanks for posting it, I liked it a lot.

Make Up is my other Transformer favorite. I didn't found it live but here's this peculiar version:



I never thought I would hear it played on ukelele.



I've been listening to Lou Reed since I was a 22 years old teenager I think. Now I'm a 27 years old teenager and still like him Cool
Haven't seen him in concert.

Indeed--the duet with Pavarotti was about as strange as it gets.

...so very formal...you used to call me Moony.

...but an excellent memory. Yes, Lou Reed supported by Split Enz (a New Zealand band...their first gig in Oz) was the first live concert I saw, at Festival Hall in Brisbane in the early 70s.

...I remember it feeling like a giant barn...we were way up the back. I'd never heard of Lou Reed. I was just tagging along with a gaggle of excited friends. Lou was just a tiny figure on the stage in dark glasses. He did Walk on the Wild Side.. I never forgot him after that.

I saw Lou perform twice. I'm not a great fan, though I like a fair bit of his work. First gig was in London (at the Palladium if memory serves me well) in the mid 1980s, at the time of 'New York', which was well represented. The gig was based on a 'return to rock n roll roots' - two guitars, bass and drums - and was one of the loudest shows I'd heard. Painful, but Lou was on form and the show was oddly enjoyable. Next time was early 2000s on London's South Bank (Royal Festival Hall? Queen Elizabeth Hall?) Less memorable, less aurally painful, but I seem to recall enjoying the gig.

I think both, the 80's and the early 70's were a good period in Lou Reed's music. Lucky you both.

hahaha not only I called you Blue Moon, I also said "he" instead of "she" (and combined "did" and "said" Rolling Eyes )
... maybe I wasn't really talking about you, Moony

...I typed without thinking, as.
I suppose I meant it's very quiet here...you know, not many posters etcetera. And eddie's having a spell at the moment.

From curiousity I consulted the book of changes about him...the keyword was ELEGANCE...one part of the text said "the delay...was not due to an obstacle, but a betrothal"... and another part: "[his]...loitering is not sinister, but honourable". Shocked

edit: and there was a white horse.
edit2: sorry...just realised this is Lou Reed's thread.

I don't know wtf you are talking about but right now I'm trying to explain the world taking this...

blue moon wrote:"the delay...was not due to an obstacle, but a betrothal"
... as a maxim.

And I think no sinister people are sinister.

What would Lou Reed say?

Edit: I've just googled "book of changes"... and now I know
But I didn't know nuns can marry

...I will try very, very hard to be clearer.
I should have said: "I looked in the I Ching while asking 'where's eddie?' and the answer was 'he's at a wedding'.
...I'll stay on track in future.
