Pale Blue Eyes - Velvet Underground (1969)
Our LCM Classic this week is a great song ‘Pale Blue Eyes’ by the Velvet Underground, taken from their 1969 self titled album. The song was written and sung by the late and great Lou Reed.
Despite the name, "Pale Blue Eyes" was actually written about someone whose eyes were hazel, as Reed notes in his book ‘Between Thought and Expression’. The song is said to have been inspired by Shelley Albin, Reed's first love, who at the time was married to another man.
