the greatest songs of all time: Pale Blue Eyes

in honor of me falling in love with the movie Adventureland this weekend, i open today off with my favorite sad song of all time, "Pale Blue Eyes" by The Velvet Underground that is used perfectly in this film.

when i was in highschool i used to have this mixtape called Soundtrack To An Imaginary Film that was a 90 minute tape that included all of these songs i loved that i wanted to use for a soundtrack of a coming-of-age movie...this is back when i had hopes and dreams of becoming a writer/director. it was full of sad bastard cuts like "Pale Blue Eyes", "Unsatisfied" by the Replacements, "Just Like Honey" by the J&MC, "The Love You Save May Be Your Own" by Joe Tex, etc... at the time, none of those songs had been used in anything...and at this point nearly 15 years later i think almost all of them have been in a movie by now.
