Love and loss at the 'Halloween Parade'

Here's Lou Reed with a live performance of "Halloween Parade" (off the New York album) from 1989.

This Halloween is something to be sure
Especially to be here without you

There's the Born Again Losers and the Lavender Boozers
and some crack team from Washington Heights
The boys from Avenue B and the girls from Avenue D
a Tinkerbell in tights

This celebration somehow get me down
Especially when I see you're not around

Lou was just a huge talent. Great loss. Miss the anticipation of of his new projects and seeing his live performances. Berlin ( 10 years ago !) at St Anne's was an amazing show.

My favorite Lou Reed album, maybe the best. Bare bones, stripped down rock'n'roll. This is a beautiful sad song.

I think Lou would be somewhat thrilled that the 'dirty blvd" is back. Go check out 8th ave from Penn to Midtown.
