From the YouTube Music Archives XXXII: Sunday Morning

It may not be Sunday morning, but it’s still a great song. From “the most influential record of the late 20th century”, The Velvet Underground and Nico. Written by Lou Reed. And while he may not have been deaf, rumors persist that he was strung out on heroin when he composed the songs on this album. Rumors that are somewhat substantiated by the title of the most well known song on the album, “Heroin”.

Sunday morning, praise the dawning / I’ve got a restless feeling by my side / Early dawning, Sunday morning / It’s just the wasted years so close behind / Watch out, the world’s behind you / There’s always someone around you who will call / It’s nothing at all / Sunday morning and I’m falling / I’ve got a feeling I don’t want to know / Early dawning, Sunday morning / It’s all the streets you crossed, not so long ago / Watch out, the world’s behind you / There’s always someone around you who will call / It’s nothing at all / Sunday morning
