Yeah, so I decided to give you a two-for-one today; I was watching an episode of CSI the other night and they had both versions of this song on the show...and it reminded me how amazing both were. They've been stuck in my head (well, let's face it, I'm always walking around with a soundtrack going on for my own movie of life) so I thought I'd put them both out there for y'all to groove on.

Lou Reed's hypnotic lyrics combined with the amazing performance styles of both bands lends to music that will be around for a long time to come; something to withstand the test of time and the nearly ADD-like attitude of the general population who set their iPods to shuffle and use music to block out the noise around them and don't necessarily take the time to indulge.
