Best Velvet Underground Songs
The Contenders: Page 2XW
The electric guitar solo says it all. Run Run Run Run Run!
This song is definitely deserving of being amongst they're best, it's a travesty that it's not even in the top 10!
The way the song uses the double meaning of Alaska as a name and a place at the end is brilliant! ITS SO COLD IN Alaska!
Completely overlooked song. Should be at least top 20.
Although Heroin and I'm waiting for the man are great, you have to give this solo credit
My vote is for this song. Proto-Grunge in 1968! - somekindofaguy
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!
This'll ever be my first place... I can't believe it's so damn low... This is ART
An under appreciated song by velvet that is just simply beautiful.
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.
Great viola driven song
