Wednesday Covers - "Waiting for the Man"

"Waiting for the Man" is arguably one of the greatest rock songs of all time, and unarguably the best song ever about scoring drugs (except maybe "I Got 5 On It").

Here's an early recording.

The Velvet Underground, 1967

Former VU bandmates Lou Reed & John Cale performing it live in Paris, 1972

David Bowie f. Mick Ronson on guitar, live in Santa Monica, 1972

Belle and Sebastian, live in Belfast, 2001

Man I could really go for some heroin right now.
