    Re: Favorite Song Of Classic Artists

    Lou Reed's song "Perfect Day" is very underrated, this BBC ad reminded me of that a few years ago

    1. Good song
    2. Great Album
    3. Nobody has defined what a "Classic Artist" is, but whatever it is, I'm not sure Lou would want to be called one.

    I didn't include Elton John, and I'm not sure I can make a quick decision. Seems like a cliche, but I think I'll go with Rocket Man. Or Levon.

    My buddy waited table in NYC and Lou came in quite often. Once he made a mix tape of Lou and VU songs and started to play it while Lou was there.
