Lou Reed - Street Hassle (complete music video)

The beautiful darkness of Lou Reed. This music "Street Hassle" is taken from an 1970's opera of sorts Lou made about the real stories of New York street life. 
Lou Reed defiantly lived what he sang, like Caravaggio lived what he painted and yes I would put those two greats in the same breath. Both irresistibly noir, making art from the source not looking at it impartially.
