Harry's Circumcision - Lou Reed

Legbamel Not-Pop

While I've listened to and loved a lot of Lou Reed in my day, Harry's Circumcision is the one song I will recommend without hesitation when his name is mentioned. I've not actually heard anyone else mention it but to me it's the perfect distillation of Lou Reed's sense of humor and lyrical style.

In his memory, I want to share it today. Even if you aren't a fan, listen to the story he tells. Then spare a moment for the guy who could tell it.
