On a side note, all of Nico's music makes me depressed.
Seriously. "I'll Be Your Mirror?" Yeah. Apparently the VU were upset with her in the recording studio, because she wasn't singing it to their liking, and she began to cry, and that's the version they ended up using. Whatever the case, it worked.
I wouldn't say I find Lou Reed's voice particularly SAD, though. However, his music does put me in a mood. And it ain't a sunshiny one.
