“Wild Side was just one of twelve other tracks [on Transformer]. I didn’t think any more of it than the other ones. I mean, the track that I really liked was Hangin’ ‘Round, which is why no one listens to me. And there’s another song, Goodnight Ladies, that I really liked, and New York Telephone Conversation, which I do with David Bowie, and it’s one minute long. There’s a lot on that album. Another example: twenty-five years later, Perfect Day became much bigger than Wild Side ever was. Go Figure. – Lou Reed
