I asked Leroy and Asa and D.Sharpe

Lou Reed's sad demise got me thinking about uber Velvet Underground fan Jonathan Richman , a man so infatuated with the band that he moved to New York from Boston and ended up living in a couch in their manager's home.
He then returned to Boston and formed the Modern Lovers whose first songs were produced by John Cale.
Here are two of their best (2 from 23 Great Recordings!) Roadrunner - a homage to Sister Ray and the ever fabulous Morning of Our Lives

i asked my friends.
Now, leroy and asa and d. sharpe,
Tell her not to be afraid.
Tell her it's okay.
Tell her it's all right.
