Coney Island Baby

I wasn’t going to post anything today, the one year anniversary since the world lost Lou Reed. However, after watching him perform Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come”, I wanted to commemorate the man. Hearing Lou sing the line, “It’s been too hard livin’/and I’m afraid to die” just breaks my goddamn heart.

Lou Reed was a musical hero because of his genuine swagger and effortless cadence in his iconic sing-talk voice. From now til the end, I’ll continue to get my Kicks every time I listen to Coney Island Baby
