Oh Nooo. Lou Reed - RIP

by Salman Hameed

Well this sucks.


Here is Lou flying into the Sun:



An excerpt from Fly into the Sun:

The earth is weeping, the sky is shaking
the stars split to their core
And every proton and unnamed neutron
is fusing in my bones

And an unnamed mammal is darkly rising
as man burns from his tomb
And I look at this as a blissful moment
to fly into the sun

Fly into the sun
fly into the sun
I'd burn up into a million pieces
and fly into the sun

To end this mystery
answer my mystery
I'd look at this as a wondrous moment
to end this mystery

Fly into the sun
fly into the sun
I'd break up into a million pieces
and fly into the sun
----

And here are couple of great songs (from many many others) for a taste and a reminder:



from his Velvet Underground days:



And how can we not end with A Walk on the Wild Side:
