If you close the door the night could last forever
Leave the wine glass out and drink a toast to never

Record albums have long been a source for great art, controversial art, and sometimes questionably bad art. Here, on this iconic cover, Andy Warhol supplied the art for The Velvet Underground & Nico released on March 12, 1967.

The Velvet Underground - Femme Fatale(1996)🎈🎈🎈 Here she comes, you better watch your step
She's going to break your heart in two, it's true
It's not hard to realize
Just look into her false colored eyes
She builds you up to just put you down, what a clown

Cause everybody knows
(She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please
(She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease
(She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

You're written in her book
You're number thirty seven, have a look
She's going to smile to make you frown, what a clown
Little boy, she's from the street
Before you start, you're already beat
She's going to play you for a fool, yes it's true

Cause everybody knows
(She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please
(She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease
(She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

Do u have a femme fatale in your mind?

By request, the #AlbumOfTheDay is #TheVelvetUndergroundAndNico (1967). #TheVelvetUnderground was formed in 1964 by singer-songwriting guitarist #LouReed and avant-garde multi-instrumentalist #JohnCale amidst the hedonism of mid-60s NYC. They adopted their name from Michael Leigh’s book about the secret sexual subculture of the early 60s. They fell in with #AndyWarhol and became fixtures of #TheFactory, his studio which became a legendary gathering place for counterculture figures, artists, and sexual radicals. The iconic pop artist also became their manager for a time and introduced the band to German chanteuse #Nico, born #ChristaPäffgen, and insisted that she sing lead on 3 songs on this, their debut album. It was a failure and almost entirely ignored upon its release. Non-musician #BrianEno once said that while the #LP only sold poorly, “everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band”. Which means, this was an #album far ahead of its time. It presaged alternative rock and is now regarded as perhaps the most prophetic album in the history of popular music. Without this, would there have been glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise? Rolling Stone, accordingly, ranks it as the 13th Greatest Album of All Time. It also introduced the world to Reed’s gritty lyricism and minimalist orchestrations, with songs which explore such taboo themes as drug abuse, prostitution, and a host of sexual deviances. The album’s iconic banana cover, which invites you to “peel slowly and see” a flesh-colored banana, was designed by Warhol. It’s the ultimate hipster album, and it’s a damn important piece of music history, even if it’s not always pretty. The dreamy sunshine pop of #SundayMorning, the raw R&B #ThereSheGoesAgain, and Nico’s lilting love ballad #IllBeYourMirror are lovely but don’t prepare you for the discordant, yet brilliant, cacophony of Reed’s celebrated #Heroin. Other sonic explorations set to blow your mind are the narcotic drone of #VenusInFurs, an exploration of S&M in one note that serves as a sort of dispassionate motif for the whole album, Reed’s #protopunk #garagerock classic #ImWaitingForTheMan, and the hypnotic #psychedelic #AllTomorrowsParties.

Similar to the way people need coffee in the morning, I always start my day with the music of the 60's. The dreaminess and the poetic but often raw sweetness of it all puts me in the best headspace possible for the day ahead of me.🍰🌹

“…well I'm beginning to see the light… some people work very hard, but still they never get it right… now I'm beginning to see the light… wine in the morning and some breakfast at night… well I'm beginning to see the light… I met myself in a dream and I just wanna’ tell you - everything was alright! I'm beginning to see the light… there are problems in these times but none of them are mine… baby, I'm beginning to see the light…” #thevelvetunderground #beginningtoseethelight #instavinyl #vivalavinyl #expkpb
