I’ve got a dose of post-holiday blues. Oh my, Oh! Sweet Nuthin’. This song features on Loaded, The Velvet Underground’s last real long player. Lou Reed narrates the story of poor Jimmy Brown, the homeless Ginger Brown, the street cat Polly May, and the love-lost Joanna Love. I’ve always thought of this song as a thing of beauty and misery. However, the sound does kick into a drum-led celebration of sorts. Moe Tucker was off on maternity leave and so Doug Yule did a very good job filling in on drums, leading the band to the song’s climax.
