37. In a perverse way, I actually enjoy "Sally Can't Dance"...
Edited on Mon Dec-29-08 12:04 PM by mitchum
it is indeed a schlocky and jivey collection of boilerplate sleaze, but it also demonstrates Reed's facility. He was able (along with Katz) to just crank those songs out. The title song's line "And wore Kenneth Jay's trash" never fails to crack me up. That Lou is a clever one.

Also, "Ride Sally Ride" possesses one of his most gorgeous melodies. It is a lovely song.

In its own way, "Sally Can't Dance" is as much a fuck you statement as "Metal Machine Music" :)
