Lou Reed Takes the Last Walk on the Wild Side

Rock legend Lou Reed passed away today at age 71. He worked with Andy Warhol and developed a cultish following with The Velvet Underground before going solo in the 1970s. That was a Walk on the Wild Side:

The song I've been seeing posted on Facebook today is Perfect Day:

Another song they should be posting is Satellite of Love:

And of course "Standing on the corner, Suitcase in my hand:"

I can't play Sweet Jane without also playing March of the Wooden Soldiers:

Somewhere, I imagine, Lou Reed is Waiting for the Man:
