Great call on Pale Blue Eyes - one of the best ever songs, ever.

I went to see John Cale last night (in Milton Keynes - England) and the only Velvets song he did was Venus In Furs - which was truly excellent. Apparently (someone said) his current UK tour is the first time he has played the viola live on stage since the sixties.

Pale Blue Eyes is definitely one of my favorite songs of all time. I can't really imagine the past few years of my life without the song, actually.

Wow, like dc's Young list, this one looks very close to what mine probably would. Great songs!

The Velvs' third album has always been oddly dismissed or ignored. Glad to see it well-represented here.

Shalom, y'all!

Well, The Velvet Underground has one of the most interesting, and smallest, song catalogs of any "classic" band. I can't say that if you were to tell 10 year old me that the same band that created Femme Fatale also created Stephanie Says, I would call you crazy...and then go back to my 5th grade classroom.
