Best Velvet Underground Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Run Run Run Run Run Run

The electric guitar solo says it all. Run Run Run Run Run!

22 What Goes On What Goes On

This song is definitely deserving of being amongst they're best, it's a travesty that it's not even in the top 10!

26 That's the Story of My Life That's the Story of My Life
27 Beginning to See the Light Beginning to See the Light
28 I Found a Reason I Found a Reason

The best velvet underground song ever! Totally underrated. It makes me feel things I've never felt before. I always heave a deep sigh every time I listen to this song.

The best of their overlooked material! Those harmonies!

29 The Gift The Gift

This'll ever be my first place... I can't believe it's so damn low... This is ART

30 Here She Comes Now Here She Comes Now
31 New Age New Age
32 Foggy Notion Foggy Notion
33 Ocean Ocean

An under appreciated song by velvet that is just simply beautiful.

34 Lady Godiva's Operation Lady Godiva's Operation

I'm Waiting for the Man is my favourite VU song, but this comes close. John Cale said White Light/White Heat was anti-beauty, but I think this is about as beautiful as VU, or many other bands get. Although the lyrics are somewhat disturbing, the music and the singing, as well as the melody, which has echoes of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" are amazing.

35 The Black Angel's Death Song The Black Angel's Death Song

Great viola driven song

36 Jesus Jesus
