One of the first songs I ever listened to 100 times… haven’t actually heard it in 30 years…. wow… still good.

What happened was, I started singing “slip away” to myself, and I couldn’t place it, and I knew it was one of the saddest things I had ever heard sung and then of course I remembered it was Lou Reed. Lyrics are here.  Springsteen makes a sly cameo.
