Song 17: Lou Reed – Walk on the Wild Side

Walk on the Wild Side was produced in 1972 as a feature song from the album Transformer by David Bowie. The song has a tremendous calmness on the rhythm, though on the other hand retains dynamism in the lyrics.

Jackie is just speeding away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would have helped that bash
