I’m not going to sit here and tell you that “Heroin” isn’t the best live song ever recorded in the history of mankind. I won’t do it. What I will say is that every time I listen to it–the very best live song ever recorded in history–when Lou wishes he was born a thousand years ago as a sailor-man traveling the world on a clipper ship, I have to shut down a different part of my head that says “You know, clipper ships weren’t around a thousand years ago. They were a product of the 19th century.” That part of my head babbles that useless knowledge every time I listen to this song.
The greatest song that actually really happened in the history of all time, ever.
