T. Nathan Roane - SongStealer - 11 - Perfect Day

Lou Reed

When Erik Redford and I performed out, this seemed our nicest closer, so my arrangement closes this SongStealer (2005) album.
Originally released on Lou Reed's "Transformer" album (1972), again on the Trainspotting soundtrack (1996) before being re-recorded for The Raven album, Perfect Day has become something of a classic, probably the only of Lou Reed's work I like beyond that with colleagues The Dirty Three. When recorded, I assumed this was written straight forward to a lady love, discovering later likely written for heroin.
