We're going to sign up for that operation from Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
to try and make ourselves forget how Lou Reed has spent the last two decades destroying his reputation (there isn't enough brain bleach out there to erase Metal Machine Music
). It's easy to forget that he used to be part of the original alternative rock act making some of the most influential music of all time with the Velvet Underground. Garage rockers The Kills
covered Velvet Underground classic "Pale Blue Eyes," infusing it with a cool, bluesy nature. I'm not sure it would be humanly possible to top the original, but The Kills definitely took a great stab at making this track their own.
