Having trouble distinguishing between Lou Reed and Lou Rawls? MfBJN offers this handy guide:
- Lou Rawls is the guy with singing talent.
- Lou Reed had something to do with Andy Warhol, who was a mid-twentieth-century painter who was famous, briefly, because Americans were bored after World War II.
Don’t be fooled by that talking-over-a-bass-line that represents “Wild Side”; that didn’t take much talent, and hence it’s obviously Lou Reed.
