Song-A-Day: January 30

Today is the 46th anniversary of The Velvet Underground’s sophomore album White Light/White Heat which came out back in 1968 and was recently remastered and thus reissued. Back before the band’s famed debut The Velvet Underground & Nico they actually had a good amount of hype and attention thanks to their ties to Andy Warhol, but White Light/White Heat caught the band when a lot of that hype chose to abandon them thanks because of unremarkable sales and recognition. Nico moved on and Andy Warhol started to distance himself, but the band struck again with another stellar and under-appreciated album which would be viewed more favorably in hindsight. There’s some terrific songs present for sure, with my personal favorite being “Lady Godiva’s Operation”, but today’s Song-A-Day is another absolutely fantastic track entitled “Here She Comes  Now”.

Now, if she ever comes now, now
If she ever comes now, now
If she ever comes now…
Now, if she ever comes now, now
If she ever comes now, now
If she ever comes now…

Ah oh, it looks so good
Ah oh, she’s made out of wood
Just look and see

Oh, it’s made out of wood
Just look and see now
She ever comes, she ever comes now
Now, now, now, now
She ever, ever, ever comes n-n-n-now…
