The Velvet Underground–Sunday Morning

Any song that places Sunday in its title has a lot of mood to live up to.  Sunday Morning, by The Velvet Underground and Nico, uses the sharp contrast of the glockenspiel against Lou Reed’s lazy, laconic delivery to perfectly evoke its namesake.  It’s innocent, clean and calm all at the same time.  Where the comedown from the weekend meets the encroaching week to come, it’s a moment of possibility and defeat perfectly rendered in cool detachment by the band.
