Music for Earth Day: Baby's on Fire

Maybe a bit darker than what you'll find at the face-painting booth but I've got work to do and I'm not happy.

Here's Brian Eno's masterpiece (one of 'em) done by "Venus in Furs" in the movie "Velvet Goldmine". Venus in Furs was the book by Sacher-Masoch. And the song by Lou Reed. As I said, dark.
Here's something a little more green than Eno, Lou doing "Sweet Jane".

Here's Eno in his own words:
Baby's on fire
Better throw her in the water
Look at her laughing
Like a heifer to the slaughter

Baby's on fire
And all the laughing boys are bitching
Waiting for photos
Oh the plot is so bewitching

Rescuers row row
Do your best to change the subject
Blow the wind blow blow
Lend some assistance to the object...
