Best Songs Ever #9: Lou Reed “Romeo Had Juliette”
Now that the Metallica/Lou Reed collaboration Lulu has zipped to the top of 2011’s “worst of” lists, it seemed like an appropriate time to remind the world that Lou is still the man.
I remember seeing Lou on the Kansas City stop of his New York tour back in ’89. It was my third and favorite time seeing him live, and “Romeo Had Juliette” was the best of the new songs he played that night.
Forgive the ponytail. Forgive Lulu. Here’s Lou Lou.
