No Money Down


This is one of Lou Reed’s singles that did not go down in history as a great classic. Although it’s a good song, that’s fair enough; Lou has a list of great classics that goes on for hours. What does deserve eternal infamy is the video. It’s disquieting and ends with what could only be an homage to The Terminator. I guess it doesn’t say much for Lou Reed’s videogenic qualities that the robot actually had me fooled for a few seconds. So I guess he’s trying to say that pop stars are robotic? The rigors of fame are dehumanizing? Society is dehumanizing? Or maybe, creepy robots of yourself are fun? Anyhow, this really does need to be seen.
