What Goes On
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


What goes on in your mind?
I think that I am falling down
What goes on in your mind?
I think that I am upside down
Baby, be good, do what you should
You know it will work alright
Baby, be good, do what you should
You know it will be alright

I'm going up, and I'm going down
I'm going to fly from side to side
See the bells up in the sky
Somebody's cut their string in two
Baby, be good, do what you should
You know it will work alright
Baby, be good, do what you should
You know it will be alright

One minute born, one minute doomed
One minute up and one minute down
What goes on in your mind?
I think that I am falling down
Baby, be good, do what you should
You know it will work alright
Baby, be good, do what you should
You know it will be alright

The best rhythm guitar sound ever...

lucasoares

Kurt Cobain stealed and used in his music spank thru

Solar Power

Sterling was genius

wiggersnake

from this rhythm guitar, we can pretty much tell what U2's The Edge was listening to as an aspiring musician.

Michaelsoft Binbows

@Meat That's Sterling Morrison on rhythm guitar

Papa Ubu

@Meat Crazy how Morrison and Reed could exchange lead/rhyhthm so easily and make it sound so fluid

Even today nobody can recreate those stinging guitars just the way the Velvets did it. The Modern Lovers got pretty close, but not even Lou ever got that guitar sound again after he left the band.

@Lothar Roberts Likely had something to do with John Cale's influence too, considering The Modern Lovers was also produced by him.

Lothar Roberts

That was due in partial to the Fender amps, Lou's Gretsch, and the Teisco Del Ray guitar Sterling was playing.

Albert Neumann

RIP Lou Reed ; Probally waiting for the man
