I initially intended to do a music round-up of all my favorite Jewish musicians, but in light of Lou Reed's passing, at age 71, on Sunday morning (The Velvet Underground fans will understand the meta nature of that) I've decided to bring you a few of my (and my colleagues') favorite Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground songs.
If you haven't listened to Lou Reed or The Velvet Underground before, now's the time to start.
1. Sunday Morning (1970)
2. Pale Blue Eyes (1968)
3. Lady Day (1973)
4/5. Caroline Says I and II (1973)
6. Who Loves the Sun (1970)
7. Take a Walk on the Wild Side (1972)
8. The Murder Mystery (1968) *Make sure you listen to this one in stereo
