Song of The Day NEW YORK: Lou Reed - Caroline Says II

Hello! This week we'll be featuring 5 bands/musicians from New York City... here's Day 2. Check out our Facebook Page and keep up to date with all of our daily postings by clicking LIKE.

When I think of New York, I think of Lou Reed. I've been a big fan of his since my teenage years, after hearing his brilliant, Velvet Underground masterpiece - Heroin. In 1973, he released this third solo album, which was based around the ups and downs of a dysfunctional couple. The name of the record is Berlin, and should be in your collection. Today's featured song is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard: Caroline Says IIIt's so cold in Alaska...
