John Cale- Fear is A Man’s Best Friend
This song is from John Cale’s fourth studio album, Fear, from 1974. The Welsh artist was a founding member of The Velvet Underground before leaving and going solo. He also works as a producer and helped create the debut albums for artists including The Stooges and Patti Smith.
Below is a live version where you can see how animated he is as a performer. This version of the song also includes the addition of a bit of Chopin.
