Everyday should be a Sunday Morning.

For those of you who have followed my blog for some time, you know I post versions of The Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning” from time to time. Since this month’s subject on Music Passion is “Morning” I thought I would collect them all together in one post. “The Velvet Underground and Nico” has been voted the “most influential L.P. of the late 20th century”. Brian Eno once said, “Only five thousand people ever bought a Velvet Underground album, but every single one of them started a band”. Judging by the recent additions on this list, the influence continues and saturates almost every genre.

First up is the original V.U. version.

Next is my personal favorite, Lou Reed on David Letterman.

Vanessa St. James turned it into a modern pop anthem for today’s youth.

Beck recorded his own tribute.

Elizabeth Cook’s version is a lovely cross between Latin and Country with a tip of the hat to Photography and Street Art in the video..

And finally, there is James (who actually convinced Brian Eno to temporarily abandon his policy of “no live work” and perform with him).

It is a fitting finale, a tribute to the entire Velvets catalog, incorporating bits of Heroin(e), Black Angels Death Song, Sweet Jane, Waiting For The Man and Pale Blue Eyes. It also includes bits of Lou’s Walk On The Wild Side. Enjoy, and as always thanks for stopping by.
