VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Lou Reed – ‘I Love You, Suzanne’
July 7, 2017
The 1980s proved to be a cruel and unforgiving time for many artists of a 1960s vintage but Lou Reed had always been cut from a different cloth.
And while it’s easy to focus on Reed’s unassailable position as the Poet Laureate of New york City, it’s just as easy to forget that he was always a rock’n’roller at heart.
Taken from his 1984 album, ‘New Sensations’, a terrific collection of rock’n’roll music, ‘I Love You, Suzanne’ is as close to pop as Reed ever got. Little surprise, then, that this single found Reed hijacking the airwaves in a manner not seen since ‘Walk On The Wild Side’.
And if Lou Reed is having fun like this, then there’s no reason for you not to.
