Best Velvet Underground Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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!

22 How Do You Think It Feels
23 Stephanie 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.

24 The Murder Mystery V 1 Comment
25 European Son
26 That's the Story of My Life
27 Beginning to See the Light
28 I 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

29 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!

30 New Age
31 The Gift

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

32 Here She Comes Now
33 Foggy Notion
34 Ocean

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

35 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.

36 The Black Angel's Death Song

Great viola driven song

Needs to be higher
