1960's Velvet Underground

Okay, in this blog I showed almost just trance and house music, until now. Of course lots of music out there which were reached the top of the charts, but  lots of people haven't really heard them.  The intention of TopMusicBoard is  to show these "top, but haven't heard songs". These songs are not very popular because new trends like Justin Bieber and others taking over the market, and the younger generation don't really listening to good oldies. So I'm sad, because these songs deserve more.

So our next is a Velvet Underground's masterpiece.

The band  (Velvet Underground) formed in New York at the begginig of the 60's. One of its members was Lou Reed.
(I think lots of you knows his other songs like Perfect Day.)
 This band has a really long story, you can read interesting infos from Wikipedia, like
Although experiencing little commercial success while together, the band is often cited by many critics as one of the most important and influential groups of the 1960s. As Brian Eno put it, "The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band."

As I said the next song is a masterpiece, it became very popular after it's release. Written by
Lou Reed, in the early stages of  Velvet Underground.


  1. Fucking love the Velvet Underground buddy. This song, "Heroin" and "There She Goes Again" are a million different kinds of awesome. Lou Reed is quite something, missed out on going to see him live in London recently and regretted it immensely!

  2. Best rock n roll band ever.. I could listen to their work and Lou Reed's for the rest of my life. +1 follower
