Walk On The Wild Side (78/365)

Walk On The Wild Side - Lou Reed (Early in 1973): Hanging in FortZany with WLS on, Greg and I decided this song had to be played at our wedding. We took the tandem to Edgebrook and bought the 45 at Ross Discount for $.48 and practiced dancing to it in the basement of my house.

Never heard the song, and I don't think I ever heard Lou Reed either. He was rather cute, wasn't he? I went looking for a recent picture...He's changed quite a bit. Sigh. So have I.

Hey, this is Laurie Anderson's beau! (And another of my birthday buddies...)

Love this song, love the idea of this at your wedding!

This one of my favorite songs. I remeber the first time i understood the sexual undertones. Its funny when that happens.

What? There are sexual undertones in this song?

Yes Susan, Lou Reed was cute. We had a friend who looked a lot like him - I'll 365 him someday.

I love this song. My husband was a big fan of Lou Reed back in the day.
