Song of the Day 2/7/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s is #536:

Lou Reed – Kill Your Sons

 

Bellevue treated me pretty good

Creedmoor was even better…

All those drugs that we took, they really were lots of fun

But when they shot me up with Thorazine

I’d just smoke and talk like a sonofagun

Dontcha know they’re gonna kill, kill your sons.

 

Remember, this was 25 years before Prozac. The 1973 album version is on Sally Can’t Dance; mp3s are everywhere you would expect. The link above is a neat live take from Italy, 1983 with the late Robert Quine on lead guitar.
