The Late Genius LOU REED Released Imperishable Classic ‘WALK ON THE WILD SIDE’ 50 Years Ago

Standout singles from the past

26 November 2022

The late genial singer-songwriter-rocker-performer LOU REED released
his imperishable signature classic WALK ON THE WILD SIDE (almost
370 million
streams on Spotify) than 50 years ago, on 24 November 1972.

It was released along with that other masterstroke Perfect Day (more than
1962 million streams on Spotify) as a double A-side single. Both songs were
taken from Reed’s Transformer LP produced by David Bowie and Mick Ronson.

Laurie Anderson about ‘Walk On The Wild Side’:
“It has the best bass line ever to push a pop song.”

The song peaked at #10 in the UK and #16 in the USA but kept
on selling over the years as it was re-released a couple of times.

Take a walk once more, Lou.

Waking Up… With LOU REED On A Sunday Morning In 2004

1967 classic Sunday Morning – written by Lou Reed – is the best-known song
by The Velvet Underground (more than 300 million streams on Spotify).
It featured on their intoxicating debut LP.

I stumbled by accident on this mesmeric version with the late genial Lou Reed playing
it live in 2004 on The Late Show With David Letterman’ at the Ed Sullivan Theatre NYC.

Riveting!

10 GEMS By LOU REED

Turn Up The Volume selects 10 gems of favorite artists/bands

15 August 2022

Who doesn’t like making all sorts of (play)lists?

I do. Best of lists, end-of-the-year lists, golden oldies lists,
only family lists, guilty pleasure song lists, summer lists,
brand new song lists. Okay, stop, I think I made my point.

Today: LOU REED

For a second I thought to change this series, just once,
to 100 gems. Ridiculous, right? I know (I think).

Okay, just off the top of my Lou Reed head, I picked these 10.
(no, not the hits nor the too obvious ones).

Just sing, Lou
