Actually I don't think you did get carried away. The Solidarity movement in Poland is often termed the "Velvet Revolution" because one of the resistance's main inspirations was the music of the Velvet Underground. Zappa was a major factor as well.

I'm sure Lou Reed loved that, a great example of the power of music. Here's a favorite quote.."The Deadheads are doing the dance of life and this I would say, is the answer to the atom bomb." – Joseph Campbell

Great quote, and a very great mind in Joseph Campbell.

I thought the "velvet revolution" was in czechoslovakia. that's why Vaclav Havel became a good friend of lou.
