Peter Gabriel/Lou Reed “Power Of The Heart”

Peter Gabriel picked a beautiful, unusually sentimental Lou Reed song, for his covers project “Scratch My Back.”

Lou started performing this tune live in the Spring of 2008, but it hasn’t made it onto a proper album yet.

I say unusually sentimental, but I can’t think it’s a coincidence that this love song first appeared in Spring 2008, right around the time the Reed got hitched to his longtime partner, Laurie Anderson. Perhaps it was a wedding gift?
