Song of the Day (The Chain): Lou Reed – Perfect Day

Day 22. Golden Brown was a song which many assume to be about heroin addiction which became a huge commercial success. Lou Reed’s Perfect Day is also a song which many assume to be about heroin addiction which has seen great commercial success.

Perfect Day is a slow, druggy ballad with huge uplifting choruses. It might be just me but I believe I detect a strong note of sarcasm in the chorus.

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 funJust 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
