Lou Reed: Take A Walk On The Wild Side

Lou Reed’s song is about transvestites who come to New York City and become prostitutes. "Take A Walk On The Wild Side" is what they say to potential customers.

Reed's poem to sexual ambiguity and bohemian decadence broke new ground but “Walk On The Wild Side” wasn't banned by the BBC because the bosses didn't understand the lyrics.
