Song of the day: The Velvet Underground/"Beginning to See the Light"

I drove to L.A. this weekend with my friend Jeremy, which gave me a chance to catch up on my listening-to-music-while-driving habit. While I've been buying new music lately like it's going out of style, one of the standout songs on the drive was an old one -- The Velvet Underground's "Beginning to See the Light," off of their excellent self-titled album from 1969. That album is on my shortlist of desert island discs, and the song is one of my favorites. Click here to hear why.
