"What Goes On"

The Velvet Underground, 1969. Via Justin Wehr, who writes:

By the time Velvet Underground's "What Goes On" (original version9-minute version) was through with me, my eyes were shut, my stomach was up with my lungs, and my tongue was out with my chin. I wiped the drool away and thought, "I didn't know music could do that."

Pretty good stuff, Craig. High praise from a fellow who now is generally bored by most popular music from that era.

I wish I'd heard this 35 years ago; I'd have more fully enjoyed it.

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.
Let it be good, and do what you should,
you know it'll work alright.
Let it be good, do what you should,
you know it'll be alright.

I'm goin' up, and I'm goin' down.
I'm gonna fly from side to side.
See the bells, up in the sky,
Somebody's cut the string in two.
Let it be good, and do what you should,
you know it'll work alright.
Let it be good, do what you should,
you know it'll be alright.

One minute one, one minute two.
One minute up and one minute down.
What goes on here in your mind?
I think that I am falling down.
Let it be good, and do what you should,
you know it'll work alright.
Let it be good, do what you should,
you know it'll be alright.
