Wash Your Mouth Out Lyric: Candy came from out on the island/In the backroom she was everybody's darling/But she never lost her head/Even when she was giving head.”

While the “colored girls” was doo-wopping on the corner, Lou Reed white-boy croons about all the New York City freaks he hung out with in the 70s, including infamous transsexual Candy Darling. Produced by former gender-bender David Bowie, one wonder whether A Tribe Called Quest knew what Reed was ranting about when they sampled the track's infectious bassline on “Can I Kick It?”
