In 1968, The Velvet Underground finally found a large, mainstream audience during a performance on the Lawrence Welk Show Video created by Darren Hacker. Visit his site at pages.ripco.net Or on Facebook at www.facebook.com
High on the popularity charts
oh the guests he had over the years….anyone got the Welk episodes with Iggy Pop or David Bowie? lol…funny stuff,this vid
thankyou thankyou, get down and get fuuunky.
Wow, I didn’t know that Larry and the Boys wanted to get down and be funky!
This is absolutely fantastic.
@atumnalequinox6895 Tell your uncle he needs to make more Welk mashups
@metamorphosis67 Why wouldn’t I notice? Why wouldn’t Lawrence Welk’s abilities be recognized? Sure some of the stuff got cheesy in the color days, but he had amazing arranging abilities and his musicians not only could play their instruments well, but they were all very creative. I guess I’m just fortunate enough to love music enough to play guitar for 20 years and then pick up the electronic organ and actually give music that I used to make fun of as a teen a second chance. Watch my playlists.
@paulj0557 I agree with you ignore the other guy
@metamorphosis67 Shut up you moron you’re ruining everyone elses fun can’t you take a joke?
OMG looks so much like it could have been a number from the show

And they even used Vox equipment just like VU did! (check out 2:01). Nice!
An early You Tube clip. Made famous by promotion of many Rock Magazines. Infact, it was this clip…all these years ago, that bought me to “You Tube”!
I’m assuming the only reason this is the single version is because there wasn’t a 20 minute lawrence welk clip that would work.
twin 88s… lawrence always knew how to rock the house. wunerful wunerful
@alto100 – I could care less about your blessings or your curses. I didn’t care about blessings or curses before I knew I was queer – I don’t know why I would after. And that includes, I might add, the blessings or curses of the gay community, if such a thing actually existed, which it doesn’t, partially sad to say…
This would have been funnier if it were funny.
