Songfacts®:

  • This song is full of slang terms for heroin, including "Dr. Nova" and "Tango and Cash." In the official press release for the album, Doughty says, "That song is kind of like my 'Walk On The Wild Side.' I like how Reed's tune is all about tranny whores and yet is all over classic rock radio." >>
