Song of the Day: The Feelies - Only Life

The Feelies are mentioned as being influenced by Velvet Underground and being peers to R.E.M., but when I first heard them, I didn't see the connections. I'm not sure what song I heard, because when I got a copy of Only Life, I fell in love with it immediately. The lead singer does in fact sound like Lou Reed (I like Lou Reed), and they cover a VU song on this album ("What Goes On"), but it's the opening title track that I'm listening to today.
