Lou: Saved from the dustbin of cult history

Lou Reed is an old man in rock years, but he continues to be born again

Lou Reed is an old man in rock years, but he continues to be born again

“With “Like a Possum' I wanted the listener to have a different view of time,” Reed explains. “Like, this song goes on for eighteen minutes, so it's a rare instance in today's music where you can sit back or whatever and give up to the music and just let it take you away. It's not going to end in two minutes, three minutes. You can just go with it. And it's a different way of looking at time, I thought. The song's tempo is not slow, but because the song is longer, there's a sweep to it you don't normally get, and you can experience it on a CD. It blows my mind. It really does. I just can't believe it.”
