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.

26 Beginning to See the Light Beginning to See the Light
27 I Heard Her Call My Name 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

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!

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

31 Here She Comes Now Here She Comes Now
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
