“Temporary Thing” – Lou Reed

This is Lou at his nastiest… this time, hurling his bile at a woman who thought it would be a kick to “slum” and hang with him, but is now running screaming back to her more comfortable life. Rock and rollers have been doing variations on this theme for years. Hell, it was the subject matter of almost EVERY non-cover the Rolling Stones did between 1964 and 1966. But Lou adds some bad language and the kind of venom only a junkie can provide. A nice, malevolent groove. From the 1976 album, “Rock and Roll Heart.”
