I wonder what Lou Reed thought of this version? Maybe he just smiled as he deposited the royalty check into his bank account...

I still hate this genre of music. Patrick's comment is something that hadn't occurred to me before - rearranging a song means someone had to be paid for the use. That's a good observation.

Every time Mann released an album, all the crops in Iowa grew a foot taller.

One, I don't think Mr. Mann realised just what the original was all about...
Two, the original was quite funky enough already.
