The Velvet Underground – I’m Waiting For The Man

When this album was released in 1967 it was largely ignored. Fools. Since then it has been recognized as one of the most influential and critically lauded rock albums in history. It was recorded in 1966 during  Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable multimedia event tour, which I wont even try to describe. Don’t know if it was the drugs, the nihilism, the times or what but the feeling you get from this music truly something else.

Hey white boy, what you doin’ uptown?
Hey white boy, you chasin’ our women around?
Oh pardon me sir, it’s the furthest from my mind
I’m just lookin’ for a dear, dear friend of mine
I’m waiting for my man…”
