I’ll be your mirror

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

This is one of my favorite songs. It is a love song Lou Reed wrote for Nico ; their relationship ended suddenly. It is rumoured that Nico declared: “I cannot make love to Jews anymore.” To me, this song can also describe friendship, artist as a mirror.

This version was recorded during rehearsal under Le Havre University cafeteria in early 90s with tape recorder in the center of the room. This explains low quality.

Bass & arrangment : Benoit Castelot, drums: Laurent Guiod, guitar & voice: Franck Garot.
