Lou Reed Perfect Day

  • Pin it

It’s been another wonderful week with you, thank you for your great comments! Wishing you the most amazing weekend yet, I dare you to see a Perfect Day every day!

Lou Reed’s Perfect Day is my Friday Break today, enjoy this great song and the weekend to come! (I included the original version right after the jump, along with the precious information about Lou Reed’s Perfect Day; below is the Various Artists version, a BBC line up of amazing artists for commercial purposes but so wonderfully put together that I had to choose it as the main video of this break.)

Perfect Day was written and sung by Lou Reed in 1972. Though it might have some references to Reed’s drugs addiction (besides being inspired by Bettye Kronstadt, his future wife at the date), the song remains one of the most romantic piece of music I’ve ever heard.

Featured on Trainspotting’s soundtrack (1996), Lou Reed’s Perfect Day was covered by numerous artists but the most important cover of them all is the above BBC corporate/charity initiative (1997).

To me perfect choices for my what was my Perfect Friday. And a perfect weekend too.
I love this song, it’s iconic whatever the lyrics are about. The Various Artists version is great too love some of the artist still. And wonder where some have gone…….

It’s always a pleasure to visit your place lovely lady. Thank you for being around in the blogosphere.
