Lou Reed - Perfect Day

Lou Reed sadly passed away yesterday from liver disease, 71 years old. So many of the good ones disappear now, and Reed was a larger than life presence, having written and recorded so many great songs it's almost scary. He did, however, produce quite a lot of "difficult" songs as well, so I've always had an undecided view of the man and his music. There is no discussion surrounding the qualities of "Perfect Day" though. It's one of his most well-known songs, a ballad from his second solo album, 1972's Transformer, a stunningly beautiful song that is wide open for interpretation. May he rest in peace.
