18. The Velvet Underground – Venus In Furs
Originally featuring on the 1967 album, The Velvet Underground & Nico, Venus In Furs was inspired by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's book of the same name. Dealing with themes of sadomasochism, the song is deeply inspired by the book, which follows the character of Wanda von Dunajew and charts her journey into female dominance.
