“Perfect Day” by Lou Reed – with Luciano Pavarotti

You made me forget myself; I thought I was someone else, someone good.”  Lou Reed – “Perfect Day” off the 1972 classic, “Transformer album.

(A Lou Reed lollapalooza…)

April 3, 2008

The ever-so existential “Perfect Day” by Lou Reed is one of my all time favorite songs.

And I’m a huge Luciano Pavarotti fan.  So it blew me away when I came across this video of Lou Reed and Luciano Pavarotti singing “It’s a perfect day” together.

What a hoot.  Please enjoy:

Okay – for the purists…


Perfect Day

Just a perfect day,
Drink sangria in the park,
And then later, when it gets dark,
We go home.
Just a perfect day,
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later, a movie, too,
And then home.

Oh it’s such a perfect day,
I’m glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

Just a perfect day,
Problems all left alone,
Weekenders on our own.
It’s such fun.
Just a perfect day,
You made me forget myself.
I thought I was someone else,
Someone good.

Oh it’s such a perfect day,
I’m glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

you’re going to reap just what you sow,
you’re going to reap just what you sow,
you’re going to reap just what you sow,
you’re going to reap just what you sow...

Perfect Day
