Best Velvet Underground Songs

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Run Run Run

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

22What 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!

23How Do You Think It Feels
24Stephanie Says

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.

25European Son
26That's the Story of My Life
27Beginning to See the Light
28I Heard Her Call My Name

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

29I 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!

30The Gift

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

31The Murder Mystery
32Here She Comes Now
33New Age
34Foggy Notion

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

36Lady 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.

37The Black Angel's Death Song

Great viola driven song
