Take a walk. Lana Del Rey led me to this song. “Born to Die” references taking a walk on the wild side, however, my Facebook friends (one in particular) gave me way to much musical credit and assumed I was quoting Lou Reed’s song “Walk on the Wild Side.” This friend of mine introduced me to Velvet Underground on vinyl during a jam session and I was instantly taken aback. Being that Lou Reed was in Velvet Underground until he pursued his solo career, this song has the same effect. Referencing sex, prostitution, and drugs this 1972 release is scandalous but helplessly intriguing. c.
