Lou Reed

Listen for when Lou, who's making fun, at some level, of being a rock 'n roll singer, claps (one clap)--taken up in the moment by the earnestness of the Yule brothers or by the sentiment of his words (against those evil muthas) or whatever. He believes what he's singing in spite of himself. That 'oh whoah, Sweet Jane" after the bridge leaves no doubt. Love this. RIP, sir, and thanks for the song.
