While everybody was into flower-power in the 60's. Velvet were dark and gloomy. God bless them.

I had the Lou Reed album "Street Hustle" when I was a kid in 1978. One of the songs lyrics is "suitcase in my hand". I didn't realize at the time that was a clever refrence to this song.

Of all the versions of this song (other Lou/VU versions or covers) this is the most pure........

Who's better than Louis Reed, maybe sweet Jane.

I start a Velvet Underground station after hearing the sample of this song and this is the first song that plays! Incredible.

Happy Lou makes me happy.

F**k you fc662004. This song is amazing. This is one of the best songs ever. And, about the covers, Mott the Hoople's version is good, but this is the best version.

Listen Lou Reed do it live on Rock n Roll Animal. It is great!

is there another VU song where Lou gives a more spirited vocal effort? i don't think so.

blakepayne is correct, the Cowboy Junkies version of this song is one of the best covers of any song I have ever heard - they truly made the song their own. and dylanmbond is an idiot - people are talking about covers of a particular song (which nearly every band does), not cover bands or tribute bands. go upstairs and ask your parents to explain if you can't grasp that difference.

Truly one of the greatest bands of all time. And certainly one of their greatest songs. This is the definitive version and take of the song. I like this lengthier version a lot better than that damn edited shorter version on some albums.
Report as inappropriate
One of their best

Sorry, but I have to disagree with the other posters: my granny does the best cover of this song.

This song is TOO COOL. Didn't know 'bout it, hadn't heard it 'til I did some research after hearing, the song Benecio del Toro, "Jerry" was listening to on the movie "things we lost in the fire". Catchy.

greatest cover of this song is by the cowboy junkies hands down
