from the annals of the inexplicable in human behavior

Puzzle on this:

A men's room. One urinal and one stall. The stall door is closed and from behind it comes the driving distorted guitars and organ of the Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray," which one internet commenter aptly describes as "Seventeen violent, drug fueled, sleazy, sex crazed minutes of fractured guitars screaming in glorious ecstasy." Imagine being the guy at the urinal, imagine hearing the refrain of "couldn't hit it sideways" over and over again, imagine trying to figure out how this song would be of any aid in producing a bowel movement. 

Here's what "Sister Ray" sounded like when Lawrence Welk did a cover version. Or is that just a weird story. Puzzle on that.
