Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side. Here's "Sunday Morning" from his work with the Velvet Underground.

More after.

Here's the best version of "Walk on the Wild Side" I could find on YouTube, even though it has no video. But the audio is good and it's a nice live version of one my favorite songs.

And here's a version of "Perfect Day" with Luciano Pavarotti. I love how Pavarotti would do these sorts of opera/pop duets. I can't think of anyone else who would enter into the pop medium this way.

And here's a live performance of "Kicks."

Sunday Morning is one of my two favorite tracks from my favorite VU album, the other being I'll Be Your Mirror. Thanks Alex!
