Vicious  performed by  Lou Reed  (1971)
From: USA
Mood: Although the lyrics are angry, the tune makes the song have a happy sound
Recommended by Gwendolyn [profile] on Monday 28th November 2005

This happy-tuned song has that up-beat sound of the late sixties/ early seventies. Although Lou Reed doesnt have the best singing voice, he makes up for it with quality lyrics... much like Bob Dylan. Great guitar in this one.

from The Best of Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground

If you only know this song from the greatest hits you should check out Transformer itself, a quality record. In fact all the Velvets LP's individually, including 1969 and everything Reed did solo up to, say, 1975.

  20 Dec 11 ·schlick: Transformer was released in 1972, and Rick Wakeman played on Lou's first solo album released earlier in that year, not on Transformer, just wanted to clear things up.
