LOU REED : VICIOUS / I’M SO FREE [1972]

Τραγούδι – μαϊντανός μια φορά κι έναν καιρό, ξεχασμένο σήμερα, βρέθηκα αίφνης να το ακούω στο μυαλό μου, “ανακαλύπτοντας” ξανά πόσο σπουδαίο είναι, από κάθε άποψη.
Μαζί
άλλο ένα, παρεμφερές, από το ίδιο άλμπουμ του Lou Reed.
A banality once upon a time, forgotten today, I suddenly found myself hearing it in my mind, “rediscovering” how great a song it is, from every aspect.
With it another one, of
similar nature, from the same Lou Reed’s album.

Vicious
You hit me with a flower
You do it every hour
Oh, baby, you’re so vicious
Vicious
You want me to hit you with a stick
But all I’ve got’s a guitar pick
Huh, baby, you’re so vicious
When I watch you come
Baby, I just want to run far away
You’re not the kind of person ’round I want to stay
When I see you walking down the street
I step on your hands and I mangle your feet
You’re not the kind of person that I want to meet
Oh, babe, you’re so vicious
You’re just so vicious
Vicious
Hey, you hit me with a flower
You do it every hour
Oh, baby you’re so vicious
Vicious
Hey, why don’t you swallow razor blades?
You must think that I’m some kind of gay blade
But baby, you’re so vicious
When I see you coming
I just have to run
You’re not good and you certainly aren’t very much fun
When I see you walking down the street
I step on your hand and I mangle your feet
You’re not the kind of person that I’d even want to meet
‘Cause you’re so vicious
Baby, you’re so vicious
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious

Yes, I am mother nature’s son
And I’m the only one
I do what I want and I want what I see
Huh, could only happen to me
I’m so free, I’m so free
Oh, please, Saint Germaine
I have come this way
Do you remember the shape I was in
I had horns that bent
I’m so free, I’m so free
Do you remember the silver walks
You used to shiver and I used to talk
Then we went down to Times Square
And ever since I’ve been hangin’ ’round there
I’m so free, I’m so free
Yes, I am mother nature’s son
And I’m the only one
I do what I want and I want what I see
Could only happen to me
I’m so free, I’m so free
Oh, oh, oh, I’m so free
Oh, oh, oh, I’m so free
Oh, oh, oh, I’m so free
In the morning, I’m so free
Late in the evening, I’m so free
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so free
When I feel good, I’m so free
When it’s in the morning, I’m so free
When it’s in the evening, I’m so free
I’m so free, I’m so free
I’m so free, I’m so free
Feel so good, now, I’m so free
Oh, oh, oh, I’m so free
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so free
Oh, oh, oh, I’m so free
Feel so good, now, I’m so free
Feel a little nice, I’m so free
Feel little down, now, I’m so free
You’re so free, I’m so free
I’m so free, I’m so free
I’m so free, I’m so free
I’m so free, I’m so free
I’m so free

    Vicious is a great composition. The cheeky lyrics, the guitar riffs and Reed’s vocal performance are all vintage A+! It’s fab hearing it again
    Thank you for the second song. Don’t remember it, and enjoyed it!
