Walk On The Wild Side

I am not afraid to say that I sometimes like music because of its cool 'out of the ordinary' lyrics, which will make others say, "Hmmmmmmm". I also like this song for the music, which makes it an even cooler song to listen to.

Lou Reed's song "Walk On The Wild Side", was recorded in 1972 on an album that was produced by David Bowie.

This is a controversial song that is about transgender prostitutes, oral sex, and drugs. Something that is more out in the open now, than it was back in the early 70's, which makes me think that Lou Reed was a person born ahead of his time.

If you aren't familiar with this song I urge you to watch this video.
