Week Eight: I’m Stickin’ With You

This classic Velvet Underground song clocks in here on Kristorm-O-Rama as possibly our easiest so far, yet also our latest. We’ve been managing to crank out a song and have it posted by every Wednesday, but it’s already Saturday; almost time to turn right around and get the next song going! Lucky for us, the reason we were so late is that we got halfway into the song we were supposed to be doing for this week, and then realized it was going to take us a bit longer. When you hear it, you’ll understand why.

All this time I’ve been thinking that the vocal in the VU’s version of “I’m Stickin’ With You” was sung by Nico, when in fact it was sung by the Velvet Underground’s drummer, Maureen Tucker. If you’ve ever seen photos of the Velvet Underground and wondered who was the 13-year-old boy in the corner, that’s Maureen Tucker. I love her voice! But apparently she rarely sang.  The original song has a pleasing sort of off-key sloppiness, which I feel we pulled off nicely.

    Wow, Maureen totally looks like a 13 year old boy!!!! Love it. This is great. Y’all nailed this one. I love the silly, simple, sloppy romance of the VU. Love! Thanks for singing a fave of mine!
