A Fan's Take on Lou Reed's "Walk On the Wild Side"

I thought about "Walk On the Wild Side" last week -- because David Bowie produced it -- but there was never an "official" Lou Reed video. Yesterday I found this "fan" version that includes lots of rare footage of the Andy Warhol "superstars" that Reed mentions in the song: Candy Darling, Jackie Curtis, Joe Dallesandro, etc. A couple of years after quitting The Velvet Underground, Reed released his first solo album, Transformer, and it included "Take a Walk...". Despite the lyrics about cross-dressing and other (for the time) NSFW lyrics, it made up to #16 on the pop charts. Doot, da doot, da doot, da doot, doot, doot.

P.S.: Fans of topless Marky Mark may recall that he released this strange "re-interpretation" of the song in 1991 and changed the title to "Wildside."
