"Satellite Of Love" as written by and Lou Reed....
Satellite's gone
Up to the skies
Thing like that drive me
Out of my mind

I watched it for a little while
I like to watch things on TV

Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of

Satellite's gone
Way up to Mars
Soon it will be filled
With parking cars

I watch it for a little while
I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of

I've been told that you've been bold
With Harry, Mark and John
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday to Thursday
With Harry, Mark and John

Satellite's gone
Up to the skies
Thing like that drive me
Out of my mind

I watched it for a little while
I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love

Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love
Satellite of love

    General CommentI love how VU puts these little interjections in their songs that seem unrelated and are often slower than the actual song--- e.g. "I've been told baby you've been bold" in here, "heavenly wine and roses" in Sweet Jane, and "here comes two of you" in Beginning to See the Light. They always make the songs stand out for me.

    My OpinionI definitely like the rocking VU version better than the glam ballad on his David Bowie-produced Transformer album (fitting given Bowie’s outer space fixations). I’ve read some interesting interpretations of the song and Lou Reed describes it as the “worst kind of jealousy”. But I read this song - right or wrong - as "Watching TV can’t fill the void of love in absentia." (kitchensnark.com/2010/entertainment/rock-snob-sommelier-velvet-underground/). Now maybe that absent love is messing around with Winkin', Blinkin' or Nod...but TV is a sucky replacement no matter what the reason...
