Velvet underground, the - everything you've ever heard about


Written by Reed and Cale at 6am on a Sunday morning after an all-nighter in Manhattan, the song certainly delivered on Wilson’s order. Reed took the lead, relegating Nico to background vocals. In the studio, Cale discovered the celesta that would give Sunday Morning its eeriness. Beneath the veneer of this beautiful song is the feeling of anxiety and unrest: Andy Warhol challenged Reed to write a song about paranoia and Reed responded with the line “Watch out / The world’s behind you”. Only the Velvets could make a song both pretty and distressing.

VU released their second studio album White Light/White Heat , which peaked at number 199 of the Billboard charts. The album was more experimental than their first album, featuring a loud and aggressive musical style. The album was produced without Warhol and Nico for the first time. [2] On March 1969 they released the third studio album The Velvet Underground . It did not chart upon its original release. However, when reissued in 1985 it peaked at number 197 in the Billboard chart. [3] One year later, Loaded was released by Atlantic Records , the first time by a major label. Compared with VU first releases, Loaded was produced for the mainstream, without thematize sex and drugs. Although the songs were successful and popular in several music radios, neither singles, nor the album itself peaked in any music chart. [4] It was the last album featuring Lou Reed , the founder of VU. After his departure, Doug Yule became the new frontman of The Velvet Underground and released together with Willie Alexander ( keyboard ), Walter Powers ( bass guitar ) and Maureen Tucker ( drums ) their fifth and last album, Squeeze . [5] After their break-off, several compilation albums were released, some of which feature outtakes from their previous studio sessions, most notably VU , which peaked at number 85 on Billboard and 47 on the UK Albums Chart .
