Lou Reed wrote "Pale Blue Eyes" in the late 60's and his band, the Velvet Underground, recorded in it 1968. Although the original, somewhat melancholy, version has the most power, the song has been covered, like so many of Lou's songs, by tons of bands. I've especially loved Patti Smith's version, although R.E.M., Alejandro Escovedo, Counting Crows and Eric Anderson have all done excellent takes on the song. Here's the original music, with C&L pal Lucas' visuals:
